Whilst browsing through the natural and organic products we stock at Elyce Victoria, you will find many are 'certified organic' & ‘vegan’. There are several national and international organisations responsible for awarding organic certification & vegan certification. Each organisation has its own set of criteria and guidelines which products and brands must meet before they can claim to be certified organic or certified vegan. Below are the nationally and internationally recognised certifications some of our brands carry.
Australian Certified Organic (ACO) is Australia’s largest certifier for organic and biodynamic produce. Australian Certified Organic provides certification services to operators from all sectors of the organic industry. Certification ensures compliance with national production standards and allows trace back of all products to their origin.
Australian Certified Toxic Free is awarded from Safe Cosmetics Australia.

Vetted by an independent third party, Safe Cosmetics Australia confirms that the stated ingredients are excluded from their products. Brands are committed to manufacturing healthier products that are unlikely to cause harm to human health, animals or the environment.
Leaping Bunny Certified is an internationally recognised cruelty free certification. By 1996, ‘cruelty-free’ shopping had become popular, but it was also confusing, sometimes misleading, and ultimately frustrating. Companies had begun designing their own bunny logos, abiding by their own definition of ‘cruelty-free’ or ‘animal friendly’ without the participation of animal protection groups. In response, eight national animal protection groups banded together to form the Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics (CCIC). The CCIC promotes a single comprehensive standard and an internationally recognized Leaping Bunny Logo. We work with companies to help make shopping for animal-friendly products easier and more trustworthy.
Not Tested on Animals is a certification from Choose Cruelty Free (CCF) an independent, non-profit organisation based in Australia. Not Tested on Animals began in 1993 with Choose Cruelty producing the Choose Cruelty Free List (CCF List) for Australian consumers. They actively campaign for an end to animal testing of cosmetics, toiletries and other household products. CCF surveys and accredits cruelty-free companies selling cosmetics, toiletries and household cleaning products to Australian consumers, online and/or retail.
The Organic Food Chain (OFC) is the result of two Australian farming families recognising the need for an organised and highly accountable system of Organic Accreditation and product differentiation. The Organic Food Chain families continue to work with industries to develop and maintain strict standards in order to facilitate and meet consumers’ expectations of organics. The key principle in organic production is that farming activity should improve the soil so that animals and plants have access to an abundance of naturally occurring nutrients. In order to be certified, companies must demonstrate that they meet the National Standard for Organic & Bio-Dynamic Produce, and are subject to an independent annual audit and chemical residue analysis testing. The OFC is one of the leading organic certification bodies in Australia.
Peta Certified Cruelty Free and Vegan is run under PETA’s Beauty without Bunnies program. Peta Certified Cruelty Free and Vegan – Beauty Without Bunnies program is the ultimate resource for conscientious shoppers, making the quest for cruelty-free products as easy as (vegan) pie. To gain certification companies listed either signed PETA’s statement of assurance or provided a statement verifying that they do not conduct or commission any animal tests on ingredients, formulations, or finished products and that they pledge not to do so in the future.
Soil Association Organic Standard are one of the most widely used, recognised and trusted organic standards in the UK and have a strong international reputation. Soil Association Organic Standard wants to ensure the highest possible standards of animal welfare, environmental and wildlife protection. Soil Association Certification is our independent certification body. It carries out inspections and awards organic certification to farms and businesses that meet its standards.
The Vegan Certified logo was founded by the Vegan Awareness Foundation in the US in 1995. The Vegan Certified logo certifies that a product is vegan, meaning that it does not contain animal products or byproducts and has not been tested on animals. The Certified Vegan logo is used only to certify individual products, not entire companies, allowing consumers to recognise and trust that a specific product is in fact vegan. The Vegan Awareness Foundation allows the use of this logo on products made in the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
The Vegan Society was established in 1944 in the UK and is the oldest vegan organisation in the world. The Vegan Society Sunflower Trademark is carried by products that have been registered and authorised as being free of animal ingredients and animal testing. Products carrying this logo can be recognised by consumers as having had ingredients checked and are trusted to be vegan-friendly. The Vegan Society was the first to coin the term ‘vegan’ and for over 70 years has acted as an authority to check that products are free of animal products, by-products and derivatives, as well as third-party use of animal products in manufacturing.
