If you would prefer to see lovely alive orangutans like this then please check your products for palm oil. Thanks to the BOS website for the original list which has been extended.
UNFORTUNATELY the list is NOT Vegan but there is one currentlybeing complied - stay tuned. So even though the below products do not contain palm oil they do contain ingredients derived from animals who suffer just as much as oranguatns, so please consider changing to a 100% cruelty free POF (palm oil free) Vegan diet as it is the only one that is truly 100% cruelty free
Palm Oil Free is Planet Ark’s campaign to help stop deforestation in South East-Asia due to palm oil plantations, which are destroying the habitat of the amazing Sumatran and Bornean orangutans as well as many other incredible birds, animals, plants and critters.
Thanks to Aware, the first Palm Oil Free laundry products available in major supermarkets, Planet Ark is able to assist projects protecting orangutans and those working towards sustainable palm oil production.
This is because for every Aware laundry product sold between the Ist October 2010 and 31st March 2011, Planet Ark will receive an additional 10c to assist these projects.

The list is not all inclusive and there may well be other products in the categories covered which are palm oil free – if you know of any, please send us an email and let us know email@example.com Where labelling is not definitive, we have attempted to confirm the information in this list through letters from our supporters to the manufacturers.
Nearly all Australian manufacturers contacted informed us that where products did contain palm oil, it was from sustainable sources. This is a good start, but the effectiveness of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (www.rspo.org/) is yet to be proven. So I personally will still not buy these products. Product specifications can change – the information in this list is believed to be correct at the time of putting it on this site.

McCain Foods has informed us that it does not use palm oil in its frozen dinners.
Nestle (Lean Cuisine, Maggi) has indicated that palm oil is not an ingredient in the majority of its frozen meals but has not been able to be more specific. We've put together a list of those products which don't have vegetable oil listed as an ingredient - not a guarantee but the best we can do with the information we have.

Nearly all frozen pastry contains palm oil as it is made using margarine or vegetable oil. However we have found a chilled filo pastry and one puff pastry product that contain no palm oil and are listed below.
Most pizza products we looked at contained vegetable oil and in many cases E471 as an emulsifier. McCain has responded that palm oil is not used in the preparation of its pizzas so we assume that the vegetable oil listed as an ingredient in its products is not palm oil.
Steggles has informed us that it uses cottonseed and canola as its frying and general food oil. While not specified in its formulations, Steggles advises that its suppliers may use emulsifiers including E471 at very low levels which don’t require labelling.

Nuttelex's main ingredient is sunflower oil but it does also contain a small amount of palm oil. Similarly, Alfa rice bran spread says it is palm oil free but it uses a palm oil derived emulsifier. i have written to the company and am waiting on an explanation.
Most peanut butters appear to contain palm oil. Apparently the peanut oil is extracted to sell separately and replaced in the peanut butter by cheaper palm oil. However we have found one of the Sanitarium range of products which is 100% peanuts called 'NATURAL' is POF, Woolworths Oragnic Peanut paste is POF and the Melrose Health Spreads are also palm oil free.

I have removed all the Woolworths products from this list because Woolworths home brand Select products are packaged in paper and cardboard made from pulp paper from the Indonesian Pulp Paper Industry which also rapes Rainforest for their product. Woolworths Ltd’s Sustainability Strategy, released in 2007, states that it has been able to exclude palm oil from its Select brand food products and is in the process of phasing it out from all Homebrand food products and in-store baked goods. It comments that the latter is challenging as in-store baked goods may contain margarine and other ingredients supplied by third parties. We are seeking confirmation from Woolworths that all Select products are indeed palm oil free.
Coles has informed us that it does not have a list available of the “You’ll Love Coles” or “$martBuy” products that are palm oil free. Its housebrand standards demand that the used of palm oil is in line with RSPO principles and it is Coles’ intention to move towards declaring palm oil in its labelling. So I have removed Coles products as well.
Finding soap without palm oil in supermarkets is difficult. However, we have been alerted to a number of online suppliers who produce a palm oil free product as well as shampoo and moisturiser products. Visit their sites for the full range.
Lush has been working for over a year to remove or reduce its use of palm oil. It has confirmed that from November 2009 it will be moving to a palm oil free soap base in
