Ingredients supplier Gattefossé has announced its objective for 2012 is to have 100 per cent of its Personal Care ingredients using palm oil and palm kernel oil derivatives, being RSPO Book & Claim compliant.
In 2011 the French firm purchased and claimed GreenPalm certificates for its cosmetic application, and has purchased and claimed GreenPalm certificates of sustainable Palm Oil or Palm Kernel Oil which have covered its consumption since the beginning of the year 2012.
In 2010, Gattefossé became a member of RSPO (Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil), to support conscientious and responsible palm oil producers and cooperatives.
“As a user of Palm Oil and Palm Kernel Oil derivatives, Gattefossé is sensitive to the environmental impact of palm tree growing. This has led the company to participate in the development of sustainable cultivation,” says a company statement.
