    I find some virulent pleasure, from leaving comments on some of the incredibly deceptive/comical cosmetic products that end up falling in my Facebook que, due to me expressing interest in the field.

    As of late, a number of just horrific acne products have fallen into my que. (Guess what I have been researching ???? .) It is not just the grease and a few plant extracts that aggravate me….but the miracle cures they offer. They shout from the mountain tops…. the complete cure of acne, in 7 to 10 days.

    So, my question is….. I know one can make cosmetics that might have a benefit for acne prone skin, but as soon as you start using ‘acne’ as a claim word, I believe you fall under the FDA’s regulations. These products are made on someone’s kitchen counter!

    I took a brief glance at the FDA site…..but am looking for a link to some direct statement, where the use of verbiage stating acne cure/prevention/activity drops the product into a regulated status.

    I assume it is not ok…to make any acne claim you want, in the USA?

    Looking for links….I can drop in their Facebook comments.

    Aloha.
