Cosmetics company caught red-handed

A cosmetics and therapeutic goods company admits it used the “Australian made” logo without permission from the Australian Made Campaign.

A cosmetics and therapeutic goods company admits it used the “Australian made” logo without permission from the Australian Made Campaign.

Jeune International says it admitted using the logo without permission when approached by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission. Jeune now has the permission of the campaign to use the logo.

The group has received court orders demanding it will not use or depict the logo without certification, implement a trade practices law training program and maintain a corporate complains handling system.

ACCC chairman Graeme Samuel says recognising truth in advertising is important.

“Corporations falsely using the Australian Made logo can gain significant commercial benefits by misleading consumers into believing the products had received approvals, endorsements or certification, when in fact they had not,” he says.
