L'Oreal Hit by FDA Warning Letter for Questionable Claims

Cosmetic Company L'Oreal Hit by Warning Letter for Questionable Claims > RAPS > News - Article View:

"When does a cosmetic product become a drug? When it’s marketed as having advanced features that alter the body's cellular state, explained the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in a warning letter sent 11 September 2012 to Lancôme USA, a subsidiary of cosmetics manufacturer L'Oreal.

The letter references a number of products marketed by Lancôme, many of which claim to promote a more youthful look and go by names like, "Génifique Cream Serum Youth Activating Cream Serum" and contain modifiers such as "Precious Cells Advanced Regenerating and Reconstructing Eye Cream."

Claims Allegedly Violate Federal Regulations
In its warning letter, FDA said the products' claims, contained on Lancôme's website, make claims indicating that they affect the function and structure of the human body, which would make them a drug as defined by the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act."
