Cosmetics Regulatory Services in USA


The United Stated of America (USA) is perceived as the largest market for cosmetic products across the world. Though the Federal Food, Drug & Cosmetics Act (FD& C) Act regulates cosmetic products in the region, neither the products nor their ingredients are reviewed/approved by Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The FD&C Act requires claims for a product’s function to be thoroughly reviewed as skin protectants (such as, diaper and ointments). However, in the USA, antiperspirants, treatments for dandruff and acne, mouthwashes marketed with therapeutic claims are classified as drugs, thus, losing the ground to be marketed as cosmetics. Since post-marketing surveillance and adverse events are monitored stringently, thorough tracking and reporting of the products can be challenging, which may also increase the revenue burden.
