Have you been looking for palm oil free soap?
If you have you been looking for palm oil free soap, perhaps you are looking for soap without palm oil in it. If so, no doubt at some stage you have come to know about the devastation the palm oil industry is causing. Once your eyes are “opened” to what is really going on with palm oil, and you start looking for it in the ingredients of products you are using every day, you suddenly realize palm oil is in so many of the everyday items you have been using!
Avoiding buying products that contain palm oil is not easy. So next time you go shopping, you read the list of ingredients carefully to pick the items without palm oil…
“Where on earth can I find soap without palm oil?”
Do you feel like screaming after turning over every bar of soap on supermarket shelves and spotting words such as “Sodium Palmate” and “Sodium Palm Kernelate” every time? Even simple words like “vegetable shortening” or “vegetable oil” probably indicate the presence of palm oil. Where are you supposed to find soap that contains no palm oil and feel sure about it?
To make matters worse, when it comes to palm oil free soap, the available options are extremely limited. If you have special needs such as eczema, psoriasis, rosacea or sensitive skin, it is terribly hard to find something which is non-irritating, let alone without palm oil! Do you then have to succumb to making a compromise? We think not! As consumers, we should be allowed to choose the products we will support without being bullied into buying items we are not completely happy with.

The palm trees would have been initially planted in cleared virgin forest, so I will not support it.
“I really wanted to try Milk Relief Soap™, as I was having trouble finding something mild, perfume free & without palm oil etc. The palm trees would have initially been planted in cleared virgin forest, this is now a wide spread problem, so I will not support it. I wrote and told the Milk Relief Soap™ team about my dilemma, and to my surprise, they offered to make a palm oil free batch just for me!
I have been looking for a good soap for years.
“They made a brand new formula with the flora & fauna protection in mind. I didn’t mind waiting for the soap as I have been looking for a good soap for years, but my psoriasis was starting to play up due to lack of sun while I was waiting. (Winter in New Zealand)
My soap search is finally over.
“When I used Milk Relief Soap™, I noticed that my wet skin felt ‘squeaky clean’, but when dried, my psoriasis wasn’t so itchy. In fact, quite a few weeks later when the first bar of soap finished, my skin was feeling great. I decided to try it on my hair as a shampoo and that was even better, as my hair became softer and less spiky. My soap search is finally over. So thanks, and I will recommend Milk Relief Soap™ to others. I will be in touch to order more fabulous soap in the future.”
