In the United States, the federal government regulates cosmetics under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act, 1938) and the Fair Packaging and Labelling Act (1966). While Congress has recently passed an act that expands the FDA’s authority (Modernization of Cosmetics Regulation Act of 2022 or MoCRA), their power to regulate the safety of cosmetics has been limited. To provide consumers with more transparency in cosmetic ingredients and ensure the safety of cosmetics on the market, some states have adopted cosmetic regulations beyond federal law. Here we will look at what is happening at the state level to oversee the safety of cosmetics and personal care products.
