Regulation of Cosmetics: Is Increased FDA Oversight on the Horizon?

, 177(8):1202-04, JAMA Intern Med. 2017. They found that, from 2004 to 2016, consumers and health care providers reported a total of 5,144 adverse events attributable to cosmetics, an average of nearly 400 events a year. The three most commonly implicated product types were hair care, skin care and tattoos, and there were “significantly higher than average reports of serious health outcomes” involving personal cleanliness, baby, hair care and hair coloring products.

The report found that consumer complaints more than doubled for cosmetic products from 2015 to 2016, largely due to reports about WEN by Chaz Dean Cleansing Conditioner products. FDA is currently investigating these hair care products after learning that the company received thousands of complaints about alopecia and skin irritation. FDA only learned of these complaints through inspections of WEN’s facilities. Once the complaints came to light, consumers filed a class-action lawsuit, accusing the company of hiding safety risks. The case was settled in 2016 for $26.3 million.
