We get a lot of questions about whether or not our products are FDA approved because we’re based out of China. The answer is complicated, because technically no cosmetics or personal care products can be “approved” by the Food and Drug Administration because it does not permit approvals on cosmetics or skin care products, but our products do pass all regulations imposed by the FDA—at least, until you brand them as your own. There are a couple of things you need to know about how your branding may impact whether or not your products will pass the regulations imposed by the FDA, so we wanted to outline those in a blog post to help better educate you before you make your first steps into creating a cosmetics brand.
Marketing & Representation
As far as the FDA is concerned, how your products are marketed, represented, and labelled means the difference between whether or not they are compliant with regulations or not. When creating the marketing and labeling for your products it is important that none of them are being represented as a cure for any diagnosable condition or illness. A skincare product that can be used to prevent the appearance of aging, for example, cannot claim that it can also be used as a treatment for eczema.
Medical grade skin care products, on the other hand, must meet an entirely different set of regulations as they are heavily regulated by the Food and Drug Administration. Retinol, an active ingredient used to exfoliate dead skin cells and prevent the appearance of aging, can only be used in small amounts in over the counter skin care. Most products with a higher percentage of the ingredient are only available by prescription from a dermatologist, and must meet a new set of standards imposed on medical grade skin care.
Aurora Global Brands & FDA Regulations
Since Aurora Global Brands does not create skin care products you’re unlikely to have to worry about mislabeling your products, as long as you don’t claim that your private label lip gloss can also cure psoriasis (which would be unlikely). In short, if you make sure that you represent your product clearly, as well as its intention, you are unlikely to run into any issues with the FDA regarding whether or not your products meet the regulations imposed on cosmetics in the United States.
All of our products are made with ingredients that meet regulations imposed by the Food and Drug Administration in the United States. This also means that they are likely to meet regulations in most other countries to be able to be packaged and sold around the world. We pride ourselves in the quality of the products that we make, and want our clients to know that they don’t have to worry about whether or not the products they purchase from us for private labeling will contain toxic ingredients.
