Labeling on a mosquito lotion….
I am in the final stages of development on a lotion that mosquitos dislike. I have read the FDA labeling guides, but still have some questions, as it did not directly hit on my areas of concern.
1) First….My product will make NO claims that it repels mosquitos. Just state that it is DEET FREE, and have some quirky name that includes Mosquito…but NOTHING about repelling them.
2) No regulated components (Oil of Lemon Euc, (PMD) etc) are included.
3) About 1/2 of the features that mosquitos will dislike, come from essential oils….so here is where my questions begin.
I know that if I were to make a claim…that it repelled…I would need to list the EO’s, and their rate of inclusion. So if I am NOT making any kind of claim….can I lump them under… ‘Fragrance’, not list them individually and not list percentages?
Thank you for your thoughts!
Sidebar……..hehehe….the challenge in this product….has been reducing the volatility, and increasing the duration of dislike, beyond 15-18 minutes. But I almost have that licked. …. Well I do have it licked….but it is an emulsion killer….but I think I have products on the way…to fix that.
