Bella Vi has
pledged to exclude and restrict potential allergens from our formulations and
have undergone clinically testing of our products to validate the safety of our
products and we are proud to be Allergy Certified®.
An Understanding To Becoming An Allergy Certified®. Brand
Australian labeling laws are scant, allergens are only required on food labels. In the EU it is a mandatory requirement to provide allergy advise on cosmetic products. SCA's Allergy Certified® campaign logo endorses brands that pledge to provide consumers with full ingredient transparency as well as specific safety advice concerning potential allergens.
ingredients are highly processed however, processing is not aimed at removing
potential allergens from cosmetic ingredients. Therefore most brands undergo a
document based review that 100% excludes & restricts the chemicals of
concern, which are both natural and artificial, man-made chemicals.
brands can submit clinical test reports that confirm that the product
formulation and/or the ingredients of concern, are free-from potential
allergens. Where a product is tested and found to be suitable for human skin,
where clinical studies indicate that the product is non-sensitising to skin,
non-toxic to skin and/or non-irritating to skin, the product is scientifically
proven to be a non-irritant when applied to human skin. Clinical tests can also
prove if allergens have been removed from specific ingredients such as propolis
from bee derivatives. Where a formulation is 100% compliant with the Allergy
Certified Criteria, the product can be endorsed with the Allergy Certified
logo. Alternatively, clinical test reports can confirm that the product is a
non-irritant when applied to skin.
Cosmetics Australia (SCA) maintains that the chemicals outlined in the documentation
are associated with allergic dermatitis, contact dermatitis and/or skin
irritation that has the potential to trigger systemic reactions either
immediately or after repeated long-term use. The campaign highlights the need
for improved labeling laws with ingredient transparency and allergy advice
similar to mandatory food labels. Brands can adhere to the campaign criteria or
substantiate their marketing claims with clinical test reports, confirming the
nature of their product formulations. The Toxic-Free Campaign aims to raise
chemical awareness and provide manufacturers with a higher standard of
manufacturing cosmetics, than current law provides & that consumers demand.
