FDA Cosmetic Labeling Requirements


FDA Cosmetic Labeling Review

Proper cosmetic labels and claims are critical to the import and commercial success of cosmetics in the United States. Labeling issues are often the primary cause of delays in customs release or FDA import detentions. It is critical that your cosmetic ingredients are permitted by FDA and labeled accordingly. A common violation of FDA regulation is an improper therapeutic claim on a cosmetic product. The differences between a cosmetic claim and a drug claim can be very subtle, and failure to appreciate these can result in enforcement actions by the FDA.

Here are some of the label design elements to be considered:

  • Format, Font Size and the Order of Declarations of Information
  • Principal Display Requirements
  • Product Identity and Health Claims Statements
  • Ingredients Requirements
  •  Cross Checking Ingredients vis-a-vis FDA Cosmetic Ingredients Dictionary
  • Warning Statement Requirements
  • New Quantity & Place of Business Requirements
