Saw palm oil code words on my Paul Mitchell Conditioner: cetyl alcohol or stearic alchohol, so I wrote them about it fearing the worst. Here’s their response:

Thank you for your inquiry about whether Paul Mitchell utilizes palm oil.

The cetyl alcohol and stearyl alcohol used in our products are derived from coconut oil, not palm oil.

I hope this answers your question.

YAY!  Why don’t all the companies shift to coconut oil — or would end up causing the same deforestation problem, with high conservation value rainforests chopped down for coconut plantatations as opposed to palm oil plantations?
