Palam Rural Centre in Southern India which makes this soap use the finest ingredients and essential oils. This product uses sustainably sourced palm oil from India. The State of Andra Pradesh is suitable for the cultivation of palm trees, especially in the highlands where farmers struggled with other crops, which have been replaced with palms. When compared to the price of imported palm oil from Malaysia, the local oil is more expensive. However, Palam is committed to conserving nature and protecting endangered animals, and only purchase palm oil locally.

I can certainly commend the New Internationalist for quick postage & handling - I ordered it on the web and it arrived at my door within 2-3 days, awesome compared to the usual 1 month+ with Amazon!
I began buying the New Internationalist magazine because it started to educate me on issues that I was interested in; globalization, fair trade, inequities, injustice ... it has huge authority and credibility and authenticity ...
Proud to help... read you cover to cover
For many years I have read the New Internationalist magazine with great respect. Many an article I have written, and film I have made, have had their roots in something I read in the NI.
A little about Asha Handicrafts: Asha Handicrafts provides the security of markets to small scale artisan workshops around India, like ANSA, the soapnut harvesters in Tamil Nadu.
New Internationalist Australia is a member of the World Fair Trade Organization, which means we have to stock a percentage of Fair Trade products, and also adhere to Fair Trade practices ourselves. Great for supporting producers rights, and also for our staff.
