We’ve been working closely with industry experts, advocacy groups and ethical supply chain experts to ensure we understand this complex issue.
We're really proud to be leaders and innovators in the palm oil free category, and after months of trials and tests in September 2015 we released our new palm oil free hand and body lotions. They are currently the only palm oil free lotion in the category at Coles and Woolworths. It's a real breakthrough to have these products hit the shelves. Sourcing palm oil free replacements is a complex task, and these particular formulations have taken our factory ten years to develop.
Our goal is for all of our products to contain either Certified Sustainable Palm Oil or be palm oil free, so we're committed to continued research and development with our manufacturers to achieve this.
