Palm Oil Free
Over harvesting of Palm Oil has threatend the now critically endangered Orangutan among other creatures of the Indonesian Rainforest like the Sumatran Tiger, the Probiscus Monkey, Pygmy Elephant and nearly extinct Sumatran Rhinoceros. Palm Oil, also known as vegetable oil, is a natural product. In recent years, however, the need for raw palm oil has increased greatly. It is found in many products like soap, cosmetics, chocolate, margarine, biscuits, dressings, ice-cream, chips, cookies, cakes, deep fat, cleaning agents and many dairy products. In Borneo and Sumatra where raw palm oil is produced, the current plantation practices have lead to severe deforestation. Without the forest, survival of the indigenous wildlife and even plants is very difficult. Without sustainable methods for plantations, we may not see any wild orangutans in the near future.

Free by Chandler Farm has a responsibility to be partners in the environment, aid those creatures who are at risk and to give their customers the best natural products. Due to these standards Chandler Farm holds themselves to, they avoid certain ingredients. Here’s why…
Palm Oil: Over harvesting of palm oil has threatened the survival of the Orangutan in the wild. With the current rate of harvesting, the Orangutan could be extinct from the wild in as soon as 10 years. Palm oil is prevalent in body care products, foods, bio-fuel.
Parabens (methl-, ethyl-, propyl, butyl, isobutyl-): “Parabens are chemical preservatives which have been identified as estrogenic and disruptive of normal hormone function. Estrogenic chemicals mimic the function of the naturally occurring hormone estrogen, and exposure to external estrogens has been shown to increase the risk of breast cancer.”- Gorgeously Green
Phthalates: “These little synthetic chemicals are known to cause a broad range of birth defects and lifelong reproductive impairment in lab animals exposed during pregrnancy and after birth. They are often hidden under the term, fragrance.”- Gorgeously Green
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) and Sodium Lauryl Ether Sulfate (SLES): “This ingredient is a foaming agent which is derived from coconut oil. It is used in brake fluid and antifreeze and also in a huge variety of skin care products, including toothpaste, shampoo, bubble bath, and soap. There is a great deal of controversy surrounding SLS, as many feel it is not only a proven skin irritant but also could be carcinogenic. The Environmental Working Group considers it to be a carcinogen.” – Gorgeously Green

Importance of Natural and Organic Body Care:
Your skin is your largest organ. We are often so concerned with what we are putting in our bodies, we don’t think about what we’re putting ON our bodies. Just as processed foods have negative impacts on our internal organs, harsh ingredient-filled body care products have negative impacts on our skin.
