Waterless Hand Cleaner
I’ve been asked to formulate one of these, and my survey of products on the marketplace tells me that a large proportion of the manufacturers of these products clearly don’t think that the FDA Cosmetic Regulations don’t apply to them, particularly those products that are sold as industrial products, and not as consumer/retail products.My understanding of the FDA regs tells me that (from the website) The FD&C Act defines cosmetics by their intended use, as “articles intended to be rubbed, poured, sprinkled, or sprayed on, introduced into, or otherwise applied to the human body…for cleansing, beautifying, promoting attractiveness, or altering the appearance” (FD&C Act, sec. 201(i)).I don’t see where there’s any exemption for products not sold to the general public. Does anyone know of anything I’ve missed? It would certainly make my life easier if I didn’t have to comply.
