    Have Your Say on GECA’s Personal Care Products Standard
    11 Mar 2022 5:14 pm

    A new draft version of GECA’s standard for personal care products is now available for public comment!

    Personal care products are an intimate part of our everyday routines; therefore, it is critically important to understand their impact on the environment and human health.

    That’s why GECA created a lifecycle ecolabel standard to define good environmental and social performance benchmarks for the following categories of personal care products:

    • Liquid and solid soaps
    • Shaving creams and foams
    • Facial toners
    • Exfoliants
    • Moisturisers
    • Deodorants
    • Cosmetics
    • Nail polish and removers
    • Tanning lotions
    • Perfumes and cologne
    • Sunscreen
    • Insect Repellents
    • Oral hygiene products
    • Shampoos and conditioners
    • Hair treatments and styling products

    As part of our commitment to continuous improvement, each standard is subject to a transparent and comprehensive review process, including consultation with our technical advisory group (TAG). GECA now welcomes comments on the Personal Care Products (PCPv5.0-2022) standard from the public and industry professionals until 10 May 2022.

    A draft copy of the updated standard is available here. Please submit comments and feedback to or +61 (2) 9699 2850.
