Updated: Sep 4, 2019
28-year-old Emmy Burbidge is a make-up artist who runs her own beauty salon in Somerset, UK and wants to know where palm oil comes from and how it's made.
Emmy says that her customers are increasingly asking whether palm oil is in the products she's using. In this BBC News video, Emmy travels to Papua New Guinea to discover the truth about what's in her make-up, and to find out whether there's a sustainable way of producing the oil used in making it.
Will her trip make her change the way she runs her business?
