    Do you think you could make a good mechanic’s soap without using palm oil? I am trying avoid it since I can’t find a good source for sustainably sourced palm oil here in New Zealand and I’d really rather completely avoid palm oil and protect Indonesia’s rainforests from being turned into palm oil plantations.
