 Oriflame is the first major cosmetics brand in the world to fund sustainable palm oil production through the purchase of GreenPalm certificates covering 100% of the company’s total palm oil consumption.  

 

 

In 2010, Oriflame joined the RSPO (Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil) and made a commitment to strive towards buying all of the palm oil used in the company's products from certified sustainable sources. In 2010 this was achieved via the purchase of GreenPalm certificates for all of the company’s palm oil.  The GreenPalm organization has now acknowledged Oriflame’s achievement on their website http://www.greenpalm.org/

 

Oriflame uses palm oil as an ingredient in numerous cosmetic formulations. Palm oil contributes to the economic development of the producing countries. Nonetheless, there are environmental pressures on its rapid expansion to eco-sensitive areas. It is vital that the production and use of palm oil must be conducted in a sustainable manner based on economic, social and environmental viability.
