It's what brands leave out that matters most


Thousands of chemicals are available for use in cosmetics and everyday household products. Many of these chemicals have adverse health effects and are banned or restricted in other countries. Current law concerning the use of chemicals in Australia, does not protect you or the environment from the use of potentially harmful chemicals permitted in everyday products.

Safe Cosmetics Australia endorses brands that choose to adopt a healthier ingredient philosophy, their products are formulated without unnecessary chemicals. Choosing products that contain very few ingredients is the healthier choice when it comes to avoiding adverse reactions to chemicals commonly found in cosmetics, skincare, personal care, baby care, perfume, pet care and household products.
