Whilst food plays a vital role in the health and well-being of our families, it’s as vital to know what we are putting on our skin and the ingredients we are exposing our babies to.
Understanding which ingredients are safe, begins at knowing how to read the labels.
Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) is a statutory authority in the Australian Government Health portfolio. FSANZ develops food standards for Australia and New Zealand.
The Code is enforced by state and territory departments, agencies and local councils in Australia; the Ministry for Primary Industries in New Zealand and the Australian Department of Agriculture and Water Resources for food imported into Australia. Read the list of agencies and departments responsible for enforcement.
Cosmetics sold in Australia are regulated by the National Industrial Chemicals Notification and Assessment Scheme (NICNAS), a division of the Department of Health and Ageing. Its role is to assess the safety of chemicals new to Australia as well as existing chemicals, if reason for concern arises.
As a first step we recommend that you look at the Poisons Standard where you can search for chemical names. For more information and a link to the Poisons Standard, see the Therapeutic Goods Administration’s website.
The below products have our stamp of approval, not just because they are non-toxic, but are made with the highest quality ingredients from our most trusted brands. From their families, to yours.
