Producing Pressed Eyeshadow

Is it possibly to make your own eyeshadows in the comfort of your own home? I have read a lot of article and blogs that state it is a 50/50. If purchasing the correct equipment and having the prefect formula, Can the eyeshadows be made in your own home?

    You may want to check with your State if you are in the US. Some States such as Florida have an absolute prohibition against making Cosmetics at home for resale. In addition, should you face scrutiny from the FDA, I am almost certain that you will not achieve the cGMP standards out of your home.

  • Really? Unless you are making 1000 units per day you are a no body, cosmetic regulators are not nazis, that’s more for the pharmaceutical products. Anyway we are not even talking about selling at home, we are talking about having fun with cosmetics in a methodical way involving education, realising that making cosmetics takes a lot more than throwing things in a bottle & shaking it! I say go for it you have notthing to lose Catherine

    Florida has an absolute prohibition and the State is aggressive. As far as the FDA, in my experience, the people who produce at home often tend to cut some corners and are exposed to cGMP compliance actions. Read about the recent Silver Armor recall by the FDA. While they were not making it at home, they were cited for Drug claims and when the FDA inspected they had HUGE cGMP compliance issues.

  • Yes but they were using drug claims?

    Many are. If you look at the FDA Warning Letters, most of the warning letters start with drug claims made either in their packaging or advertising.

    This article goes into the drug claims and how the FDA identified the claims; https://www.mariegale.com/look-for-product-drug-claims/

    Here is a link to the warning letter. Once the company got onto the FDA's radar, they were cited with numerous cGMP violations. https://www.fda.gov/ICECI/EnforcementActions/WarningLetters/ucm609437.htm

  • Yes thats it, WHEN the company got onto the FDA's radar plus the glassware they implement should be warned from this site. Anything with a glass joint connection for example a round bottom flask, distillation glassware etc. I had to put myself on a police report. That was 10 Years ago and I have never heard of anything since?
    I think that if you are really making 1000 units from home then its time to get a licensed manufacturer and that is a good dilemma to deal with don't you agree?
