Each product is independently Certified.
If your product formulations include
any of the chemicals published under Key Issues, then they will not meet our
Australian Certified Toxic-Free™ seal. Where a product formulation
contains less than 15% combined total usage of the chemicals listed under Key Issues, the product will be awarded SCA's Australian Certified Non-Toxic™ MADE SAFE® seal.
Australian Allergy Certified™
Allergic disease is a major problem in Australia. SCA's Australian Allergy Certified™ aims to provide allergy sufferers with a seal they can trust. Products that claim to be clinically tested, ideal for sensitive skin, eczema-safe, skin-friendly, gentle enough for sensitive skin, ideal for allergy sufferers, or any other claim concerning skin suitability, requires brands to provide supporting documentation that verifies this claim.
View the Key Allergens for common chemicals that trigger allergies. This list of chemicals provides brands with an ingredient based review.
A letter from your formulation specialist or test results are submitted to SCA, this confirms that the products have been clinically tested, and found to be suitable for sensitive allergy prone skin types. Where clinical tests have confirmed suitability there is no need to adhere to the criteria published under Key Allergens, clinical tests rule out the need to do an ingredient based review.
