First Light Organics honours your choice to seek out products that are good for your health, the environment and that align with your personal values.For your peace of mind, and to guarantee the purity of our products in a largely unregulated industry where ‘Greenwashing’ abounds, Synthesis Organics has always committed to full transparency and to a meticulous and costly auditing process by several third party organisations. You can thus rest assured each and every ingredient is traced to its origin and each formula is checked and re-checked for alignment to the standards upheld by the following organisations:
OUR CERTIFICATIONS AND ACCREDITATIONS:
ACO Certified to the Australian National Standard for Organic and Biodynamic Produce. This is considered the most stringent standard in the world with a minimum of 95% of organic food-grade ingredients. ACO Certified means our formulas are free from genetically modified ingredients, pesticide residues, parabens, propylene glycol, sulphates, harmful colorants and fragrances, mineral oils, petroleum, and other harsh cosmetic chemicals and preservatives. It also means our products are not contaminated by toxic synthetic chemicals in their packaging (such as BPA), processing (such as chemical solvents), or during transport.
Vegan. This ensures our products are free from animal and animal-derived products. The Organic standard still allows the use of animal products so it is important to also be assured of Vegan status.
Cruelty-Free Accredited. While no animal testing or cruelty to animals is already a requirement of the ACO, Choose Cruelty-Free registration gives you a further guarantee that our products are not sold to countries where animal testing is mandatory for cosmetics.
The Leaping Bunny certification is the global gold standard for cosmetics, personal care products, and household products. It is the only internationally recognised certification that requires a supplier monitoring system to be implemented and supply chain checking for animal testing right down to the ingredient manufacturer level.
Toxic-Free. Established in 2010, Safe Cosmetics Australia pioneered the first toxic-free guidelines for cosmetic manufacturers. They have scrutinised Synthesis Ingredients and formulas and approved them Australian Certified Toxic-Free, Made Safe, Allergy Certified as well as Vegan Friendly and Not Tested on Animals.
Made Safe. Established in 2010, Safe Cosmetics Australia has scrutinised Synthesis Ingredients and formulas and approved them Made Safe with ingredients not known or suspected to harm human health.
Our new Australian Allergy Certified seal identifies our products that pass a review by Safe Cosmetics Australia for safety, skin irritation, and other harmful chemicals. In developed countries, allergies are on the rise. In 2007 an estimated 4.1 billion, approximately 19.6% of the population have at least one type of skin allergy. By 2050 it is predicted to increase by as much as 70% that’s 7.68 million people or one in every four that suffer from at least one skin allergy.
