WHY AUSTRALIAN ORGANIC CERTIFICATION IS SO IMPORTANT!

20170906-IMG_4582.jpg

Organic certification is something increasingly important to look out for with many mainstream brands and products using words like “natural” and “organic” to jump on the green bandwagon. But can they make those claims without actually being organic? The sad truth is, yes they can. The beauty industry remains unregulated meaning brands can put whatever ingredients they like into a product and say anything about the product as there is NO GOVERNING BODY to question these claims. This is why organic certification is SO important.

Australian Certified Organic is a certification board that trace all ingredients back to their place of origin. This means checking that ingredients and products contain no:

  • Synthetic colouring agents
  • Synthetic fragrances/parfums
  • Ethoxylated ingredients
  • Silicones
  • Paraffin
  • Petroleum derived products
  • GMO
  • Petrochemicals
  • Animal testing
  • Preservatives not derived from natural sources

The ACO’s process for certification is extensive and rigorous explained in detail here to ensure that any product with an ACO certification is truly organic.

September is Organic Awareness Month with the mission of educating and raising awareness about the importance of certification and truly understanding what ingredients are in our products and where they come from.
