Safe Cosmetics Australia

The Toxic-Free Campaign

A healthier future is here

Safe Cosmetics Australia (SCA), Established 2010. SCA is the first non-toxic certification program in Australia. We ensure that items used every day are made safe with ingredients that aren’t known or suspected to cause harm to human health or the environment.

Our mission is to raise chemical awareness, advocate for a pre-market regulatory scheme and verify products that are formulated to the highest standards.

Safe Cosmetics Australia has compiled a list of chemicals that are widely accepted and considered plant-based, natural or naturally derived. These ingredients are widely accepted as safe, low-irritant and unlikely to cause toxic reactions for use in everyday personal care and household products. See Nasty Chemicals To Avoid and Safe Non-Toxic Chemicals to learn more about SCA's criteria for certification.
What is SCA's role in creating a healthier future? Safe Cosmetics Australia is calling for makeup giants to reformulate their products. Search the Toxic Free List to find brands that exclude common chemicals from their formulations.

Australian's are questioning the chemicals in the products they choose and asking for a healthier solution. Some 40,000 chemicals are permitted for use in Australia, SCA aims to help drive the movement towards a healthier future without known toxicants in everyday products.

Safe Cosmetics Australia's role is essential to raising chemical awareness and providing consumers with a Toxic-Free Tick that readily identifies nontoxic products. Look for SCA's logo's for approved products and if you have any questions or concerns then do not hesitate to Contact us. With your help a toxic-free future is possible... Wouldn't it be nice not to have to check the label?
Who regulates chemicals used in Australian products? The Australian Government decides whether or not a chemical is permitted for use in this country (NICNAS). It is not SCA's role to to decide what is toxic and what isn't toxic. The problem is that chemicals are permitted for use even when there is substantial evidence that raises serious concerns for your health and safety. This is where SCA's role is vital in raising chemical awareness and advocating for a pre-market regulatory scheme.
