The Toxic-Free Campaign

Toxic-Free V's Nontoxic

A toxin is any poison derived from an organism; a poisonous substance that is produced within living cells or organisms; synthetic toxicants created by artificial processes are thus excluded and should not be confused with the term ‘toxic’. Read the full article here>>

Today it is not clear how suppliers, manufacturers, retailers or consumers define toxicity. The responsibility for determining if a chemical poses a health risk has not been resolved. As a result companies often market their products using terms such as natural, organic, eco, hypoallergenic, green, safe, toxic-free or even nontoxic without stating their definition clearly. This leads to consumer confusion and without a third party to confirm the true nature of the product, the claims are unsubstantiated.

Safe Cosmetics Australia is the first independent company to offer a Toxic-Free and Nontoxic certification program for Australian products. Our aim is to make it easier for everyone to identify products that have been verified by a third party, substantiating the product claims and the integrity of the product ingredients. We vet each and every individual ingredient that goes into making a given product using the latest available science to determine that an ingredient won’t harm fetuses, infants, children, adults or the elderly.

Based on the science available today, if there is risk for human health harm then we will always exercise the precautionary principle until further study can be done. With our instantly recognisable seals, shoppers can identify and buy healthier products putting an end to the confusion.
