As with Palm Oil, ask your supplier about their sourcing of this controversial oil. They should be able to tell you that their oil comes from a plantation that adheres to sustainable harvesting practices.
If they can't, don't fret...coconut and babassu oil both perform in much the same manner when used in a soap formula and can be used instead.
