Historically, Congress has sought to protect the health and safety of U.S. consumers from impure, unsafe, or misbranded goods. As part of those efforts, since 1938, the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic (FD&C) and the Fair Packaging & Labeling (FPL) Acts have provided guidelines for cosmetic labeling, covering such topics as how to display ingredients, how to represent product quantities, and how to present safety warnings. This white paper analyzes the current requirements and guidelines under these Acts to help simplify your Cosmetic Labeling.
