Clean Certified is a certification offered by the American Cosmetic Association for cosmetics that are made without a list of harmful and toxic chemicals such as formaldehyde, coal tar, and hydroquinone. These chemicals have been linked to cancer, reproductive problems, and other health issues, and are often found in conventional cosmetics.
At the American Cosmetic Association, we understand the importance of using safe and sustainable cosmetic products. We work with brands to ensure that their products meet our strict standards for clean ingredients, and our Clean Certified certification is recognized around the world as a symbol of safe and sustainable cosmetics.
To receive our Clean Certified certification, cosmetics must be free from a list of harmful and toxic chemicals, including parabens, phthalates, sulfates, formaldehyde, coal tar, hydroquinone, and others. These chemicals are known to be carcinogenic, endocrine disruptors, and can cause a range of health issues, including skin irritation, allergies, and hormonal imbalances. Clean Certified cosmetics are also free from artificial fragrances and dyes, which can cause skin irritation and allergic reactions.
Clean Certified cosmetics are made from natural and safe ingredients that are gentle on your skin and the environment. By choosing Clean Certified cosmetics, you can be confident that you are using products that are safe and free from harmful chemicals.
Our certification process involves rigorous testing and evaluation of the ingredients used in each cosmetic product. We review the product formulations to ensure that they meet our strict standards for clean ingredients, and we require brands to provide documentation and evidence to support their claims.
When you see the Clean Certified logo on a cosmetic product, you can be confident that it has been rigorously tested and meets our standards for safe and sustainable ingredients. Our certification is recognized around the world and helps consumers identify products that are safe, sustainable, and ethical.
