Palm oil is a kind of vegetable oil grouped broadly as follows:

1. Seed oils, such as groundnut or peanut oil, maize germ or corn oil, coconut oil, palm kernel oil and soya bean oil; and

2) Fruit oils, especially olive oil, sunflower oil and palm oil.

It took a long years for oil palm of Malaysia to occupy its present position in biological, technical, managerial and environmental.

Oil Palm has both perennial and evergreen nature (giving a continuous year-round canopy cover intercepting a high proportion of incoming radiation), the year-round production of fruit bunches and the high partition of total assimilates into harvested product.

The fruit of new tree varieties has a higher proportion of flesh (from which the palm oil is obtained) relative to kernel (from which palm kernel oil is extracted). Generally, palm oil is used as cooking oil while palm kernel oil is used in making processed foods.

You can look forward to enjoying soap, shampoos and other palm oil products with a clean conscience following overwhelming acceptance by the Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) - a group of producers, buyers, retailers, financial institutions and NGOs - on a set of criteria for the responsible production of palm oil.

Known as the "RSPO Principles and Criteria for Sustainable Palm Oil Production", the criteria give companies much-needed guidelines to produce palm oil in an environmentally-friendly and socially-responsible way. Its ratification was the result of a year-long participatory process involving a broad spectrum of stakeholders. WWF- Malaysia is an active member of the RSPO and was represented in the Criteria Working Group that helped develop the Principles and Criteria.
