FDA holds Cosmetic Manufacturers & distributors responsible for the safety and quality of their Cosmetics

Testing cosmetics before the FDA does it is a sound business strategy for cosmetic manufacturers. This is why: Cosmetic manufacturers and distributors are responsible for upholding the quality and safety standards set out by the FDA. This is a legal requirement on the part of players in the cosmetics industry. In order to ensure compliance with its safety and quality standards; the FDA routinely carries out its own analysis of cosmetics.

The regulatory agency is all the more proactive in carrying out its quality and safety checks on products that carry potential problems. It comes down heavily on such manufacturers by alerting consumers about the problem product. It also carries out regulatory and enforcement actions against such products and companies.

Another reason for which cosmetic products need to be tested thoroughly for their quality and safety is that although the FDA does not require cosmetic products and ingredients, except color additives, to get approved by the FDA before they enter the market; it has laws on how these cosmetic products need to be regulated in interstate commerce. This makes it necessary to comply with the FDA’s standards on cosmetic safety and quality.

One of the lines of defense for such companies is to carry out testing of their product themselves before they start selling it in the market. This is a sound practice that helps companies in the cosmetic industry avoid punitive actions from the FDA.

Getting the testing practice right

But then, this practice has to be inculcated in the right manner, or it serves little purpose. The ways of implementing the right methods for testing the quality and safety standards of cosmetics before they are distributed into the market will be taught at a webinar that is being organized by Compliance4All, a leading provider of professional trainings for all the areas of regulatory compliance.

At this webinar, the speaker is Rachelle D'Souza, who, as CEO of Regulatory Heights Inc., has successfully licensed various medical and consumer products and facilities with international regulatory authorities/agencies for multinational and start-up companies. The major learning Rachelle will offer at this webinar is the different ways by which to carry out practices that are prevalent in the cosmetic industry to help avoid enforcement actions from the FDA.

Guidance on the FDA’s expectations

The important learning that this webinar will offer is that it will offer thorough guidance to cosmetic manufacturers and distributors, as also other entities such as color additive manufacturers and analytical and microbiological laboratories, on the recommendations and requirements that the FDA has with regard to the safety and quality testing of cosmetics.

In line with this topic, Rachelle will help participants explore important areas in this webinar, such as FDA considerations for microbiological testing, animal testing, potential contaminants, nanomaterials in cosmetics, cosmetic good manufacturing practices (GMP) compliance testing, shelf life/expiration dating, select cosmetic ingredients and color additive batch certification.

The content of this webinar is suited to act as a proper guidance to those involved in the various aspects of cosmetics, such as Cosmetic Manufacturers, Cosmetic Distributors, Cosmetic Ingredient Manufacturers, Color Additive Manufacturers, and Analytical and Microbiological Laboratories involved in Cosmetic/Cosmetic Ingredient Testing. They will benefit in a big way by learning about areas of FDA cosmetic regulations that Rachelle will explain at this session. She will cover the following areas at this webinar:

o  Microbiological Testing for cosmetics

o  Animal Testing & Cosmetics

o  Potential Contaminants

o  Color Additives & Batch Certification

o  Select Cosmetic Ingredients: Prohibited & Restricted Ingredients

o  Shelf Life/Expiration Dating

o  Nanomaterials in Cosmetics

o  Cosmetic Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) Compliance Testing.
