There is growing trend in beauty industry to cash in on high demand for anti-aging products. In the absence of effective checks, most of the products, especially with chemical-based formulae, are being marketed with unverifiable claims. In order to ensure the safety of various personal care and cosmetic products that currently cost Americans nearly $60 billion a year, FDA is facing problems as a result of prolonged negotiations with the industry players. FDA would like to put in place a more effective regulatory regime to prevent growing harmful body care products being marked by many companies.
Under the current regulations, dating back to 1938, the companies do not need to list all ingredients in their products, nor do they have to register their manufacturing facilities with the Government. They are also not obliged to report adverse effects, making it difficult for regulators to zero in on potential problems.
FDA presently has virtually no power to review personal care and cosmetic products before they are launched in the market. The ongoing negotiations between FDA and the industry have not reached satisfactory conclusion primarily because the industry body, as alleged by FDA, has proposed less effective regulatory mechanism.
The products over which FDA has no effective control at present are :
Shaving Cream, After Shave Lotion, Pore Strips, Pore Minimizer, Lip Balm, Anti-aging Products, Acne Treatment, Makeup Remover and Corrector, Dark Spot Corrector, Eye Cream Treatments, Facial Mask, Facial Moisturizer, Cleanser, Toner, Exfoliating formulations, Tooth Paste, Mouthwash, Breath Freshening Products, Teeth Whitening Products, Shampoo, Conditioner.
In view of potentially harmful ingredients in skin care products, Herbally Radiant has been campaigning for natural organic products which are found more effective in dealing with skin problems. The organic ingredients are already well known all over for their wonderful skin-friendly beautifying effects. All Herbally Radiant products carry their respective ingredients for the benefit of consumers. In fact, the anti-aging range of Herbally Radiant products: Rejuvenating and Radiant Cleanser, Toner, Moisturizer and Mask, as also the special Clean range products, have earned excellent reviews from large number of its customers.
