Introduction to SCA's toxic-free approach to manufacturing:

Nutrition is a basic, but essential part of every day. In the long-term, insufficient nutrition leads to poor health and your skin suffers as a consequence. We have all experienced a dull, lack lustre complexion at some stage, and it is no surprise that nutrition plays a key role in maintaining optimal health. But, are you feeding your skin with daily essential nutrients that nourish and help protect the skin?

Enjoying healthy foods that are grown, harvested and eaten fresh is the best way to get glowing skin from the inside out. The best nutrients are natural, but we can also get them from vitamins in a bottle. A nutrient is anything that nourishes a living being. We get our nutrients from what we eat, while plants get theirs from the soil. Providing your skin and body with the nutrients it needs leaves you looking and feeling well-balanced, vibrant and full of stamina. Feeding your skin with natural nutrients is essential. The results are noticeable, skin feels beautiful, soft and supple to touch, well hydrated and glowing in appearance. This sounds simple enough, but if we look a little closer at product ingredient labels, it is clear to see that not all products are the same.

Brands that adopt the toxic-free approach to formulating products exclude toxic chemicals that are known to cause harm to your skin and body. These unnecessary chemicals do not provide any nutritional benefit. Instead, our certified brands choose high-quality ingredients that deliver powerful and active antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and nourishing oils that work in harmony with the skin and body.

Safe Cosmetics Australia, The Toxic-Free Campaign has pioneered the first toxic-free certification standard in Australia and furthermore, established The Toxic-Free Campaign to raise chemical awareness and promote brands that adopt the toxic-free approach to formulating products without the use of nasty chemicals that are scientifically known to cause harm to your human health, animals and the environment.
