Syracuse Soapworks soap and skin care products are made using centuries-old traditions, premium vegetable oils and pure essential oils. They contain no harsh petrochemical detergents or irritating synthetic fragrances. Our products are not tested on animals, and we provide vegan-friendly options.
Due to environmental concerns, we are in the process of phasing out palm oils in our products. While we have always sourced palm oils from members of the round-table for sustainable palm production, there still exists too many problems associated with palm production, mainly deforestation. To make way for more large palm plantations, acres of rain forest are being destroyed resulting in loss of wildlife habitat and loss of livelihood for indigenous peoples. (For more information visit ucsusa.org and worldwatch.org.) For us to continue using palm oils in our products would contribute to the problem. We have reformulated our products and plan to be palm free by the beginning of the next year. We hope that you will continue to use and enjoy our products.
