Weleda has formally advised us that any pure palm oil used is Certified Organic and therefore must be derived exclusively from non-destructive cultivation, under fair working conditions and with guaranteed traceability. Derivatives are more difficult, but they are working with suppliers to ensure this. Weleda is a Member of RSPO (Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil) and sits on the board of FONAP (Forum for Sustainable Palm Oil).
