The webinar by our expert speaker Will Woodlee will provide you an overview of legal requirements for formulating and labeling cosmetic products in the United States. He will explain the authorities under which the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulates the use of ingredients (i.e., chemicals and mixtures) in cosmetics as well as the labeling of such products. Key concepts will include FDA’s premarket review of color additives used in cosmetics, requirements for substantiating the safety of ingredients used in cosmetics, warning statement requirements, and claims and ingredients that may lead FDA to assert drug jurisdiction over a product intended to enhance the appearance.
You will leave with a solid understanding of the rules governing cosmetic ingredients and labeling in the United States, including the challenges and opportunities that marketers of these products face in formulating and promoting their products consistent with current law. You will leave better informed about the required contents of cosmetic product labels and the level of oversight of the safety of cosmetics provided under current law.
