RSPO unfortunately allows 5 years for a plantation to comply during which time they may claim the certified sustainable label. The company (rspo) has had trouble with inspections as well. There is a lot about this problem on the internet if you look for it. Especially on sites trying to save the orangutans.In UK, we have no problem buying 100% RSPO Certified Segregated Sustainable palm and palm kernel oils. These are not only innocent of de-afforestation, but usually are certified as Orangatan friendly, and cost about the same as the non-sustainable brands. They can be used to make Vegan acceptable soaps.
There does seem to be some variation in SAP values in animal fats, not sure if it is enough to make a difference. Here's a link to a SAP value table with some pretty crazy oils that I have never seen before. Do not see wild boar, but there are a bunch of other animal fats and it is really kind of cool just to peruse all the different oils just for fun.
Yet another sentence I could not have imagined in my pre-soaping life.
ETA: Ooh, clicked on a link on that page, it is a little scary, prepare-for-the-coming-apocalypse stuff. Still a great chart, though.
That's how we feel about the drought.. Know several moving and people talking about it. Maybe I can finally get beach property at an affordable price! And right when they move the rains will come as they always have.I think I would hate to always be in fear of something like that. Heck, I live in LA, pretty much on one of the fault lines, and I figure if the big one hits and I am still around afterwards maybe lots of people will move, it will make traffic better and houses more affordable JK, sort of.
