Palm oil is one of the most widely used ingredients in the world. According to the World Wildlife Fund over half of all packaged goods contain palm oil.

It can be found everywhere from lipstick, ice cream, chocolates and soaps. It’s neutral in taste, has a high smoke point and it’s inexpensive, which is the reason why palm oil is heavily used.

So, let us tell you why we don’t use it.

Large areas of tropical forest have been cut and burned to make way for palm oil plantations. This has resulted in the devastating loss of habitat for millions of animal and plant species.

The most affected being the orangutan. The great ape is highly intelligent and one of our closest living relatives. The word ‘orangutan’ is derived from Indonesian and Malay words meaning ‘Person of the forest’. They are essential to tropical ecosystems. Orangutans eat and disperse plant seeds throughout the forest, acting like ‘Gardeners of the Jungle’.  Over the last 25 years palm oil plantations have destroyed over 80% of the orangutan habitat, resulting in the death of 50% of the orangutan population. Researchers have warned that if these trends continue we might see the extinction of the orangutan within the next two decades. Not only are orangutans suffering but humans as well. Amnesty International investigated palm oil plantations in Indonesia and found workers that were being paid approximately $2.50 a day. It was also discovered that children were forced to work on these plantations and were exposed to harmful chemicals including the herbicide paraquat. The EPA ranked paraquat as a ‘Category I’ chemical, indicating the highest level of toxicity.

It is clear that these methods of agriculture and production are not sustainable. That is why at Savage Soaps we don’t use palm oil. Each bar is made with a blend of sustainably sourced olive and coconut oil. Instead of settling for cheaper oils we have invested in ingredients that are great for you and for the environment. Just like the Orangutans’ we are ‘people of the forest’, focused on working with nature, not against it. Now that’s Savage!

The basic structure of all soaps stay relatively the same despite the differing ingredients. This consists of a hydrophobic hydrocarbon tail (detracts water) and a hydrophilic anionic head (attracts water).

The type of fat or oil can result in a different length of the hydrocarbon but all in all the hydrophobic tail remains long. The carboxylate head is usually balanced by either using potassium + or sodium + . When making soap, triglycerides in fats and oils are heated with a strong alkali base like that of sodium hydroxide (lye). This produces three molecules of soap for every molecule of glycerol. 

This process is called saponification (illustrated below)

Soaps are surface active substances also referred to as surfactants. This means they make water clean surfaces better. Water has very high surface tension, which means when you pour water on a table, it sticks together. Surfactants make it easier for water molecules to wet surfaces and increase the ability of dissolving dirt, and oil stains. 

The general rule for how soap works is ‘like dissolves like’. The nonpolar hydrophobic tails of soap attract the grease and oils that help dirt and stains adhere to surfaces. The hydrophilic heads remain surrounded by the water molecules which they are attracted to. As more soap molecules embed into a stain they surround and isolate little particles of the stain called micelles. The micelle has tails of soap molecules facing toward the grease with the head facing outward into water, which results in an emulsion of soap mixed with grease in water. Soap molecules partially dissolve the stain to form the emulsion that is kept in the water until the soap is rinsed with more water.

Soaps don’t clean everything perfectly, like with water containing calcium or magnesium ions. Calcium and magnesium salts are insoluble which causes soaps to dirty surfaces because the soap binds to the calcium or magnesium. 

Soaps have since been replaced by synthetic detergents that have sulfonate instead of carboxylate head because sulfonates don’t precipitate with calcium or magnesium ions and have better solubility with water. But this doesn’t mean that synthetic detergents are necessarily better for the skin. Detergents are made for cleaning surfaces, clothes, dishes and other things that aren’t related to the skin.
