FDA CONSUMER HEALTH INFORMATION - Bad Reaction to Cosmetics? Tell FDA

Mar 30, 2011, 10:47 ET from U.S. Food and Drug Administration

SILVER SPRING, Md., March 30, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- From morning until night--styling our hair for work to showering before bed--Americans depend upon personal care products. Most are safe, but some cause problems, and that's when the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) gets involved. If you've had a negative reaction to a beauty, personal hygiene, or makeup product, report it to FDA.
