Time for Change

towards sustainable palm

BASF is one of the largest global manufacturers of ingredients for cosmetic products, detergents and cleaning agents as well as foodstuffs. The manufacture of these products mainly uses palm kernel oil and its derivatives. Palm oil is linked to deforestation, loss of biodiversity and social conflicts in the producing countries – mainly Indonesia and Malaysia. Therefore BASF will transfer a major part of its palm-based portfolio and make its personal care specialties exclusively available as RSPO certified sustainable.

In 2018, we will make a major step forward and …

  • … start to offer palm-based personal care specialties as RSPO MB certified exclusively.
  • … transfer most ingredients to MB supply chain model globally.
  • … shift a portfolio of this size and complexity for the first time.
