When it comes to planet and animal conservation, Chantecaille is leading the way for beauty.

Dedicated to using their brand platform for the wider good, Chantecaille work with a number of environmental charities across the globe to help bring better awareness about the impact of beauty. Past causes have included working with the The Rainforest Alliance, who support the conservation of gorillas and the reduction of use of palm oil.

Chantecaille Skincare is free of phthalates, sulphates, detergents, mineral oil, petrolatum, palm oil, synthetic colours, synthetic fragrances and GMO's. They are also cruelty-free and in fact work with many animal conservation charities to design special collections based on these animals. These include their Cheek Shades, which each feature a debossed animal motif to represent the brand's dedication to preserving endangered species and environments.

Nature gives back to us, and we give back to nature. It's as simple as that! - Sylvie Chantecaille

What is palm oil and why should we be avoiding it?

Made from the fruits of African Oil Palm Trees, Palm Oil comes from tropical rainforest areas.

When it's farmed, it can lead to the destruction of thousands of acres of rainforest, the home of many animals, including the gorillas. With their species number dwindling, a lot of people see palm oil as one of the leading causes of animal extinction due to their homes being destroyed.

How is Chantecaille supporting the "Palm Oil-free" cause?

Chantecaille have partnered with multiple charities across the globe, all of which are working hard to protect the planet's precious wildlife and animals that inhabit it.

Together, they are working to bring Palm Oil-free beauty products to the masses and change the way we think of using ingredients that have massive environmental impacts.
