Palm Oil

RSPO Certified Ingredients

RSPO - Certified Sustainable Palm Oil

Lubrizol is committed to sourcing raw materials, especially those derived from Palm Oil (PMO) and Palm Kernel Oil (PKO), from suppliers that do business ethically and responsibly.  This commitment means partnering with suppliers that uphold our core values of protecting the environment, promoting social responsibility, and our commitment to UN Sustainable Development Goal 15 “Life on Land.” 

Because many of our Nature Based ingredients use PMO and PKO, Lubrizol has been a member of the Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) since 2014.  RSPO is a non-profit organization committed to improving the environmental impact and human rights practices attendant to the harvesting and processing of PMO and PKO.  RSPO’s mission is to identify raw material suppliers that responsibly harvest and sustainably process these raw materials.

Currently, 22 ingredients are available with RSPO Mass Balance certification, including Hydramol™ esters, Schercomid™ monoalkanolamides, Schercemol™ esters, Schercodine™ amido-amines, Schercozoline™ O Imidazoline, Silsense™ silicones, Glucam™ humectants, Glucate™ emulsifiers, Glucamate™ thickeners and Promulgen™ emulsifiers. 

Under Lubrizol’s Palm Oil plan, additional facilities will be RSPO certified in 2019, further increasing the number of products that Lubrizol will offer as certified. Watch this space for updates on new products certifications.
