Palm oil in cosmetics: where it is located and how it is produced

Palm oil is a vegetable oil mainly used in the production of food, cosmetics and biofuels.

It is obtained from the fruit of the palm and is used in several products. Palm oil is a popular choice for cooking because it has a high combustion point and a neutral flavor. It is also a popular choice for beauty products because it is very moisturizing; therefore, it is also used in soaps and cosmetics, representing the fat part that is used to produce soap. Over time, his qualities have earned him a strong reputation.

Albogroup is a company that produces soaps and cosmetics for hotels according to customer demand, also for third parties, offering a highly efficient and versatile service, always ready to meet all needs in an eco-friendly way.

It is the most widespread vegetable oil in the world and is used in more than half of processed foods.

Unfortunately, palm oil has also raised much controversy because of its production, often impacting the environment and seeing it lose in the fight against sustainability. But the truth is that it always depends on how it is produced, and that is what creates the decisive difference.

In fact, there are certified and sustainable palm oils (RSPO), that is, from palms cultivated in an environmentally friendly way, without causing the devastating destruction of forests. In this case, the plants and technologies used are ecological and modern and are very sustainable, even more than other oils, despite the prejudices still present on the issue.

The production network of palm oils is really large, and includes Organic Palm Oils; in addition to the eco-sustainable production there is also certified organic, which makes it possible to use this product with less impact on the environment and nature.

Palm oil is produced by the de-shifting process, which is used to separate the palm from the pulp and the oil from the rest of the palm.
It is also produced by de-sulfurization after cutting the fruit. The palm is then ground and squeezed to extract the oil.

Uses of palm oil

Palm oil is used in a wide range of food products, including margarine and spreads made from margarine, cooking oils, shortbread, and confectionery.

Palm oil and sustainable certificates (RSPO)

Palm oil has been a hot topic for many people because of the controversy over the destruction of rainforests, endangering wildlife, and the rights of people and animals.

However, today there is a new way to produce them in a sustainable way, so as not to cause damage to the environment: these are the palm oils characterized by the acronym RSPO.

RSPO stands for Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil: it was created by industry to help companies meet the environmental and social criteria of the sustainable palm oil initiative.

RSPO is a collaborative body that oversees the sustainable production of palm oil. The organization provides certifications to producers and buyers of palm oil to ensure that the product is obtained sustainably.

The advantages of buying RSPO certified palm oil are many: they support sustainable practices and help the environment. It also supports local communities.

The RSPO certification is also a great way to find out if the palm oil you are buying is free from deforestation and other harmful practices.

Another advantage of buying RSPO certified palm oil is the lower likelihood of causing health problems, since it is produced with good agricultural practices and less harmful chemicals, that make it the perfect candidate for those with specific needs and increased sensitivity of the organism.

Buying RSPO certified palm oil is also a good way to make sure it is produced ethically.

What is organic palm oil?

Palm oil is a very common cooking oil and many brands use it, but the one obtained by deforestation of the forest is not healthy at all.

There is a new alternative, organic palm oil, which is made from the fruit of the palm and is not harmful to the environment.

It is an excellent alternative and is becoming increasingly popular even within the food industry, which is mobilizing to defend the rights of the planet by changing its production practices.

Organic palm oil is always produced from oil palms, found in tropical and subtropical climates. The process carried out is similar, but does not cause harm to the environment. The oil is extracted from the seed of the palm, crushing and cold pressing it.

Organic palm oil is the result of sustainable agriculture and not deforestation of the rainforest. In other words, oils are not affected by the destruction of the rainforest. It is better for the environment and for health, with direct repercussions on the quality of our life choices.

Organic palm oil is obtained from the fruit of desaturated palm, or the fruit of the palm. This is then processed to remove polyunsaturated oil and fatty acids, leaving a pure and saturated fat called palm kernel oil.

This oil is then heated and refined, obtaining a pure, white, odorless and tasteless, long-chain fatty acid, called palm stearin. This process is not only more environmentally friendly, but also more convenient.

It is a product obtained without recourse to deforestation, produced in a sustainable way.
It is a popular alternative to the traditional form of palm oil and is used in a variety of products such as food, cosmetics and household items.
