Jack and Jill eco friendly toothcare review

Shopping ethically is really important to me. So much so that I launched a website to help people to choose products that are free from palm oil. I have some amazing products listed on there, including a palm oil free toothpaste for children made by Jack and Jill. I was honoured to be asked to review their range of eco friendly toothcare.

Palm Oil Free Product Recommendations #2

Palm oil is an equatorial resource that can only be grown ten degrees either side of the equator – right where the most diverse environment on earth is found; the rainforest. Finding palm oil free products is difficult, but there are some amazing companies out there producing high quality, ethical products that are also affordable. These have been my favourite brands this month. Breakfast Cereal Rude Health make a range of ethical foods, including snacks, drinks and this Fruity Date organic porridge that we tried.
