Almost everyone has heard about the consequences of the irresponsible cultivation of oil palms.  From the displacement of indigenous populations, to the destruction of rain forests and the effects on endangered species and their habitats, palm plantations have been the target of numerous efforts to reduce worldwide demand for palm oil. At Watery Mountain Essentials, we care about people, animals, and the planet.  So, why do our soaps include palm oil?
