Caring For More Than Your Skin: Palmer’s Cocoa Butter’s Ethical and Social Responsibilities

Many of us love Palmer’s Cocoa Butter and use it to care for our beautiful skin. Down here in New Zealand and Australia, the sun can really take its toll on our skin. Having children, changing shape, getting older and various other factors can also cause our skin to dry out, become less supple and lose its elasticity – which is why so many of us love Palmer’s Cocoa Butter so much! But we know you are also a passionate bunch, passionate about the impacts of big business on our beautiful planet and its resources and people. We’re happy to be able to share the ethics and social responsibilities of Palmer’s Cocoa Butter with you.
