The use of palm oil, palm kernel oil and their derivatives in cosmetics has been controversially discussed over the past years. The deforestation of rainforests, the expropriation of farmers, and child labor are rightly denounced.
We, CREMER OLEO, as one of the biggest suppliers of basic oleochemical products such as glycerin, fatty acids, fatty alcohols and soap noodles are aware of the responsibility in this business segment. And we see it as our responsibility to create transparency in the supply chain for palm oil and palm kernel oil by offering the largest share of our products on the basis of segregated raw material.
The RSPO Mass Balance (MB) system is a first important step, particularly for palm oil and palm kernel oil derivatives. Today CREMER OLEO already offers almost all of the palm oil or palm kernel oil-based products with Mass Balance certification.
Some of our products already meet the requirements of the Identity Preserved (IP) and Segregation (SG) quality standards.
IP: Cremer GLYC Refined Glycerine Organic, CremerSAP BV711 Organic
SG: CremerSAP BV 601
