*Contains palm oil

Although this product contains no animal-derived ingredients, it does contain palm oil. Orangutans and other animals are affected by the spread of palm oil plantations, and some people choose to avoid these products for this reason.

PETA supports the move toward truly sustainable palm oil operations that (among other things) use land that has already been cleared, invest in increasing crop yield, and refrain from clearing land for new plantations.

Though some groups call for a boycott of palm-oil products or companies that use palm oil, many environmental and animal-protection groups—including ones that focus on the well-being of primates displaced by palm-oil plantations—agree that such a boycott would result in the following two major problems:

  1. It would drive the price of palm oil down to a point where already-high demand is further increased.
  2. It would promote the development of other tropical oils that are less efficiently grown than palm oil and would contribute to more deforestation and habitat loss.

To those who can avoid all tropical oils, we say: Go for it. Purchasing locally sourced, tropical oil–free household products and foods is a great way to ensure ethical sustainability. We also encourage consumers to urge companies that have been dragging their feet on this important issue to commit to using truly sustainable palm oil and to let them know that you won’t buy their products until they do so.

Disclaimer:

The items listed are specific to the Philippines and some items may not be vegan in other countries. Products change ingredients often, so be sure to double-check the label. If you notice that something on this list is no longer vegan in the Philippines, please notify us.
