can we make soap better for the environment by using algae oil?

    Unilever is expanding its research on algae-oil soap.  The algae oil would act as a replacement for palm or soy oils: prevalent personal care ingredients that have been criticized for their unsustainability.  Algae oil is touted as sustainable, but more research is needed on this point, specifically with regards to the water and energy consumption necessary to mass-cultivate algae, and whether or not that consumption is less than that of palm oil production.
