No one in the beauty industry wants to use palm oil. We all know it is bad. But up until now, companies have not had other options to formulate the smooth, creamy skincare that we all love. Palm oil naturally extends the shelf life of your skincare products without adding preservatives. It is solid at room temperature, but melts on your skin. Because of these unique properties, almost all formulated skincare products use palm oil in under 200 different chemical names (just a few examples are listed in the picture below). There are several skincare companies that claim to be palm free, but they very likely use ingredients made from palm oil (these companies probably just don't know this). A few of the common palm oil derived ingredients that companies claiming to be palm free use are: cetearyl alcohol, cetyl alcohol, sorbitan olivate, glyceryl stearate, stearic acid.
Sarnaya Oil is the first palm oil biosimilar for skincare. Sarnaya Oil enables skincare & beauty brands to formulate truly palm free products. Consumers can trust that products made with Sarnaya Oil are 100% consistent with their sustainable and environmental values. We make Sarnaya Oil with sustainable agricultural recycling, not unsustainable natural resource depletion. Ask your favorite brands to use Sarnaya Oil instead of palm oil, you can help us change the world.
