An active member of the RSPO since 2012, the company obtained certification in 2017 by the RSPO to supply mass-balanced palm to customers. It has been working toward this comprehensive offering as part of its ongoing sustainability initiatives for improved supply-chain traceability and transparency. A commitment to zero deforestation by 2020 has also been made.
“We know that our partners and the end-consumer want ingredients with responsibly sourced raw materials. We are proud to do our part to help promote mainstream trade and traceability of sustainable palm,” said Art Knox, vice president, global head of sales at Inolex.
The mass balance supply chain model administratively monitors the trade of RSPO certified oil palm products throughout the entire supply chain, which allows stakeholders throughout the process to demonstrate their commitment to sustainable palm production and trade.
In response to customer requests, Inolex complements its full offering of mass balance ingredients with a range of palm-free alternatives to meet the broad needs of the beauty care market.
Inolex’s palm-free products provide excellent substitutes for many commonly used ingredients derived from palm and are available under the SustOleo, LexFeel, Lexgard, Lexorez, Emulsense and Spectrastat trade names.
