Misbranded Cosmetics

I still get emails on this topic. I replied on Twitter but I will state the facts here too.

Misbranded cosmetics See paragraph "b" and "hair grower" 2014, FDA, revised

It means any cosmetic marketing for products natural or otherwise, promoting hair growth with no approved new drug application is in violation of FDA regulations. That does not stop small companies marketing their products online and elsewhere in violation of the regulations, until they get caught. More should be caught.

The FDA regulations apply to large and small companies and are in place to ensure companies can prove what is claimed, not just make money. Other countries have similar if not the same regulations. Any cosmetic company that is boldly violating government marketing regulations, I have no doubt is violating other regulations as well.
