INCI labeling

In America, under the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act and the Fair Packaging and Labeling Act, certain accurate information is a requirement to appear on labels of cosmetic products.FDA/CFSAN - Cosmetics Labeling Manual: Summary of regulatory requirements for labeling of cosmetics marketed in the United States. [http://vm.cfsan.fda.gov/~dms/cos-lab1.html USA Cosmetic Regulations] ] In Canada, the regulatory guideline is the Food and Drugs Act and Cosmetic Regulations.Canadian Regulation for Cosmetics: Guidelines for Cosmetics Manufacturers, Importers and Distributors. [http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/cps-spc/pubs/indust/cosmet_guide/index_e.html Canadian Cosmetic Regulations] ] The cosmetic regulation laws are enforceable for important consumer safety. For example, the ingredients are listed on the ingredient declaration for the purchaser to reduce the risk of an allergic reaction to an ingredient the user has had an allergy to before. INCI names are mandated on the ingredient statement of every consumer personal care product. The INCI system allows the consumer to identify the ingredient content.
