HELP US PRESERVE BORNEO’S REMAINING 44% RAINFOREST

In the past 50 years, more than 50% of Borneo’s original rainforest has been lost to deforestation. Every second, a patch of rainforest the size of a soccer field disappears to make place for monoculture plantations. This has huge impact on the environment and the people who live in it.

Testimonials

"The Illipe butter from Forestwise is simply wonderful! It is of the highest quality and the best I've been able to find. It is the key ingredient in my lip balms and a staple in many of my products as it gives them a great consistency with a higher melting point that I simply can't obtain with any other butter. I love and admire the transparency and ethics behind the Forestwise company and I'm very happy to have the opportunity to buy my raw ingredients from such a pure, honest and sustainable source" .

When making sourcing decisions, positive environmental and social impact are key metrics. We’ve been working with Forestwise on illipe butter since 2019 and their business model based on forest conservation through community collaboration has continued to impress. During our first visit in 2019 it was clear the care that has gone into cultivating relationships with partner communities. Their transparency in operating, commitment to continual improvement and willingness to collaborate has made them an incredibly valued supplier.
