YKA is a website devoted to teaching India’s youth about environmental issues. A recent article about the palm oil in cosmetics encouraged readers to become educated about how to recognize palm oil on cosmetic labeling, and to speak up about using sustainable palm oil.

“While the conversation on cultivating sustainable palm oil has dominated discourse, forcing many cosmetic brands to source the oil sustainably across the world, in India, the glamorous cosmetics industry appears to be still concealing the issue,” writes Shikha Sharma. She concludes, “As the largest consumer of palm oil in the world, India has the power to pressure both suppliers and companies into sustainability and demanding deforestation-free products.”
