Bad Reactions to Cosmetics? Tell FDA!

Bad Reactions to Cosmetics? Tell FDA!


This consumer update is brought to you by
the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. I’m a mom and a scientist at the FDA. My
job is to help ensure that cosmetic products are safe. Although most cosmetics, beauty,
and hygiene products are safe, if you notice negative reactions to these products, FDA
wants to hear from you. If you notice a rash, hair loss, an infection, or a quality problem,
such as a bad smell or unusual color that suggests contamination labeling that is incomplete
or inaccurate, a problem that occurred whether you followed labeled directions or not, please
make a report! Go to FDA MedWatch online or call 1-800-332-1088, you may also find
the phone number for your FDA regional Consumer Complaint Coordinator online. Remember, FDA
wants you to report problems with cosmetic products as soon as you can. Your report can
help protect all of us.
