We are proud to be certified against the RSPO Supply Chain Certification System for "Purchasing, Storage, Distribution and Processing of Certified Palm Oil and Palm Oil derived Oleochemicals".
The cosmetics and personal care industry players are increasingly recognising the importance of using and promoting sustainable palm oil. Palm oil is widely used in the personal care industry, but cultivating palm oil can have severe effects on rainforests, climate change, livelihood of the local people and the habitat of orang-utans and other wildlife.
Public interest to see improvement and change in this area has grown significantly over the years.
Fakhara Jones, Technical Director, said: "The RSPO Certification is a significant achievement for Surfachem. We are working closely with our principal suppliers and customers' technical and innovation teams to offer sustainable and ethical products as alternative sources of supply wherever possible".
Surfachem is committed to customer satisfaction by providing the highest possible levels of customer service.
As an ISO9001:2008 accredited company we work hard to ensure that our internal operations support our objectives to achieve high levels of customer service. We understand that customer needs and expectations change and only by continually reviewing our processes for improvement can we always remain ahead of our competition.
