Hand in Hand Ultimate Skin Essentials Set

Palm oil is a common ingredient found in many beauty products, with its derivatives showing up in 70 percent of all cosmetics. But the harvesting and processing of the oil-palm fruit is having devastating effects on the environment. It is a leading cause of rainforest degradation, greenhouse gas emissions, and the displacement of indigenous people and endangered species. At the turn of the century, palm oil production was estimated to have been responsible for 8% of the world’s deforestation. And while the cosmetics industry has yet to take the necessary steps to drive change, some heroic companies are taking things into their own hands. From their beginnings, Hand in Hand has avoided palm oil in their beauty and bath products at all costs—believing in the use of plant-based ingredients that are not just good for your skin, but also for the environment. Their Sea Salt Ultimate Skin Essentials Set is designed to achieve your best skin, naturally. Packed with natural hydrating ingredients like shea and cocoa butters, coconut oil and exfoliating sugar, Sea Salt includes an energizing blend of eucalyptus, spearmint, peppermint and rosemary. All Hand in Hand products are sustainably sourced, vegan, cruelty free, and of course palm oil free, to help you live a clean life with a clean conscience. And for every product purchased, Hand in Hand donates one bar of soap + one month of clean water to a child in need.
