Our Commitment to Responsible Sourcing of Palm Derivatives

Posted by Elena Cañadas on 03/19/2021

Lubrizol Life Science - Beauty believes manufacturers of beauty and personal care products have a responsibility to minimize their use of palm oil (PMO) and palm kernel oil derivatives (PKOD) whenever possible.

If those products are used, then they must be sourced responsibly. That’s why we are members of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), an international not-for-profit organization that represents all aspects of the palm oil industry.   

All six Lubrizol Life Science manufacturing sites that use PMO and/or PKOD have received Mass Balance Certification under RSPO standards, demonstrating our commitment to sustainable palm oil production and trading in RSPO-certified palm oil.

LLS Beauty products derived from palm and palm kernel oils with RSPO Mass Balance Certification include: Hydramol™ esters, Schercomid™ monoalkanolamides, Schercemol™ esters, Schercodine™ amido-aminesSchercozoline™ imidazoline, SilSense™ silicones, Glucam™ humectants, Glucate™ emulsifiers, Glucamate™ thickeners and Promulgen™ emulsifiers. We can expand these offerings to include other pertinent products upon request.
