INOLEX Offers RSPO Certified Mass-Balanced Palm Across Full Product Line


Philadelphia, PA USA - January 9, 2018
INOLEX is pleased to announce it will now offer RSPO certified mass-balanced palm across its full product line.

An active member of the Roundtable on Sustainably Sourced Palm Oil (RSPO) since 2012, INOLEX obtained certification in 2017 by the RSPO to supply mass-balanced palm to customers. The company has been working toward this comprehensive offering as part of its ongoing sustainability initiatives for improved supply-chain traceability and transparency. A commitment to zero deforestation by 2020 has also been made.

“We know that our partners and the end-consumer want ingredients with responsibly sourced raw materials. We are proud to do our part to help promote mainstream trade and traceability of sustainable palm.” Art Knox, Vice President, Global Head of Sales at INOLEX.

The mass balance supply chain model administratively monitors the trade of RSPO certified oil palm products throughout the entire supply chain, which allows stakeholders throughout the process to demonstrate their commitment to sustainable palm production and trade.

In addition to its full offering of mass-balanced ingredients, INOLEX continues to offer a range of palm-free products as an alternative for beauty care brands that wish to further address the sustainability of their palm use. These products include palm-free sensory fluids, sensory emulsifiers, alternative preservation systems, polymers and hair conditioning agents—categories which have historically been palm-derived. INOLEX’s palm-free products provide excellent substitutes for many commonly used ingredients derived from palm and are available under the SustOleo™, LexFeel®, Lexgard®, Lexorez®, Emulsense™ and Spectrastat™ trade names.
