Our Personal Care Products standard seeks to set an environmental benchmark for personal care products sold in the Australian market.
This standard applies to the following categories of personal care products:
⚫️ Liquid and Solid Soaps, including facial washes
⚫️ Shaving Creams and Foams
⚫️ Facial Toners
⚫️ Moisturisers, including facial creams
⚫️ Deodorants (non-aerosol sprays, sticks and roll-ons)
⚫️ Nail Polish and Removers
⚫️ Tanning Lotions
⚫️ Perfumes and Cologne
⚫️ Insect Repellents
⚫️ Personal Hand Sanitisers
⚫️ Oral Hygiene Products
⚫️ Hair Shampoos and Conditioners
⚫️ Hair Treatments and Styling Products
Other products related to personal care, hygiene and appearance may be added to the scope at a later date. Aerosols, including products packaged in pressurised cans or cans requiring the use of propellants, are not accepted for certification. Pump or trigger sprays that are not pressurised and do not require the use of propellant are accepted under this standard.
Single and multi-use wipes and cloths are not covered by this standard. Products to be used in a commercial sense (e.g. disinfectant or antimicrobial product for use in food preparation areas or medical facilities), and not in a personal care sense, are not covered by this standard.
On 15 March 2021, in collaboration with Edge Environment and the Global Product Stewardship Council, GECA was awarded a grant by the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment to tackle the issue of commercial office furniture going to landfill. The group will use the funding to design a product stewardship scheme that will help reduce the estimated 30,000 tonnes of furniture – much of it in perfectly good condition – that ends up in Australia’s waste stream each year.Read More See all news
