Sodium Tallowate

I rescue Daddy Long Legs who are in danger of being washed down the drain, and I feel guilty using Ant Rid.

So when I read on a box of Country Life soap:-

“This product contains NO PALM OIL.  Together Country Life and the Melbourne Zoo are committed to wildlife conservation and the use of environmentally sustainable raw materials.”,

I bought it, happy in the knowledge I was helping the orangutans.  But while soaping up I began to wonder what the soap did contain: peanut oil… linseed oil… Valvoline? No, apparently it’s  sodium tallowate made from, among other things,  cattle fat.

So “environmentally sustainable raw materials” are cows.
