What's In My Products

Consumers 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 only 150 adverse experiences (mostly skin rashes or allergies) reported, cosmetics remain the safest category of products regulated by the FDA.
