Excessive consumption of palm (kernel) oil leads to many environomental and social issues along the supply chain, hence the importance of sustainable palm oil production increases each year.
Sustainable and responsible behaviour, ̶ based on environmental, social and economic actions ̶ is a fundamental part of Lipoid Kosmetik’s business philosophy. For that reason, we have a long history regarding the use of sustainable palm (kernel) oil and its derivatives. It has been part of our purchasing specification since years. Further, Lipoid Kosmetik is a member of RSPO since 2017.
Now we are proud to announce that we reached the next level:
Lipoid Kosmetik AG received the RSPO certification according to the RSPO Supply Chain Standard, Mass Balance. This certification confirms that we contribute to the production of sustainable palm oil by using palm oil derived from sustainable supply chains. Our RSPO certification number (RSPO 7-02527-2020) can be found on the Product Composition Sheet and the Certificate of Analysis of all concerned products.
With this certification our products claimed as RSPO MB-certified are now proven to contribute to a sustainable way of using palm (kernel) oil and are able to support final cosmetic products regarding their RSPO certification claim.
The Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) was formed in 2004 with the objective of promoting the growth and use of sustainable oil palm products through credible global standards and engagement of stakeholders. RSPO is a not-for-profit, international, membership organisation that unites stakeholders from the different sectors of the palm oil industry including oil palm producers, palm oil processors or traders, consumer goods manufacturers, retailers, banks and investors, environmental or nature conservation NGOs, and social or developmental NGOs.
