Is SunFX Organic?
SUNFX has been formulating and producing solutions in Australia for a class leading 15 years. Our aim is to continue to provide the best possible organic and natural based solutions on the market.
But while we have these amazing solutions which are really the best in the world, why don't we have an Organic solution like other manufacturers? The answer is found when you are prepared to dig a little deeper.
Dihydroxyacetone ( DHA ) the most widely used active ingredient in Spray Tanning today is manufactured from various natural sources including sugar beet and even rape seed. Many companies claim to offer 100% Organic DHA. This is based on largely confusing certification by a company called ECOCERT from France. However, SunFX after contacting ECOCERT, were not convinced to be able to accurately list this active ingredient as Organic, despite quite a few companies in Australia and in the world doing so. We can however be guaranteed it is fully natural. But as the plants from which the DHA was made are not in fact certified as being of an ORGANIC process or origin then we prefer for our SunFX clients to know these facts. We feel that it is better to ensure our clients are fully aware of what they actually receive and we don't rely on speculation.
Here is one statement from ECOCERT after our correspondence regarding our wish to claim an Organic DHA as per other tanning companies. We think it is clear enough. ( Correspondence dated 14 March, 2014 )
We warn the applying company several times (first email contact, terms and conditions and attestation) that the service is reserved to non-organic raw materials and the document issued is not an organic certificate.
In the attestation only appears, natural, vegetal and synthetic percentages. It doesn't mention organic percentage or something related with organic farming or organic certification.
We hope that you agree with the stance SUNFX adopts that, in our eyes, it would not be right in making claims that are not right or that would give the public perhaps a false sense of recieving something that they in fact cant get.
