Cosmetic & Personal Care Product Safety

Scientist in cosmetic safety labConsumers of cosmetics and personal care products are protected by strong federal safety regulations by the U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA), cosmetics companies that work to ensure ingredient safety, and a strong commitment by manufacturers to utilize the best science and latest available research data to substantiate the safety of a cosmetic product before it is marketed. With more than 11 billion personal care products sold each year, and typically about 400 adverse experiences (mostly skin rashes or allergies) reported, cosmetics remain one of the safest product categories by the FDA.
