The Problems With Palm Oil

The Problems With Palm Oil

Almost every cosmetic product contains some sort of palm oil or palm oil derivative. To grow palm oil, growers burn down forests to clear the land. Animals lose their homes, developers aggressively seize land from indigenous groups, and the fires give off huge amounts of greenhouse gases, formaldehyde, cyanide, and small particles that cause serious health conditions and many deaths.

The Truth About Mica

The Truth About Mica

We get asked about mica a lot and we're so thankful that brands, consumers, and the industry are starting to ask these questions. Change can only begin when these issues are brought out of the darkness.

In this blog, we'll chat about:

  • What mica is + how it's used in cosmetics
  • Child labor in mica mining
  • Our stance on mica
  • Natural vs synthetic mica
  • What you can do to support this issue

We use a combination of natural and synthetic mica. When we use natural mica, we source only from suppliers in the US or Malaysia. These areas have (and enforce) ethical labor standards which prevent the use of child labor. We avoid all mica from India or Madagascar where labor standards are unregulated and child labor is rampant.
