Could the FDA be poised to usher in tighter labeling rules? Launches consumer survey on cosmetics allergens

The FDA is hoping to launch a web-based survey on allergens in beauty products, including fragrance, make-up, nail care, skin care and hair care, according to a report published by Allergic Living.

The agency is waiting for the go-ahead to request consumer feedback and, if successful, the evidence it gathers could lead to more stringent labelling requirements on cosmetics in the US.

“Gathering information about consumer experiences with cosmetic products, especially adverse reactions such as irritated skin or an allergic reaction is critical,” said FDA commissioner Dr Scott Gottlieb in a statement, per Allergic Living. “The information that the FDA collects through this survey is an important step in advancing a process for reducing exposure to allergens in vulnerable individuals.”
