United Stated of America is perceived as the largest market for cosmetics in terms of revenue. Cosmetic products in the USA are regulated by Federal Food, Drug & Cosmetics Act (FD&C Act) and neither the products nor their ingredients are reviewed / approved by Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Claims for a product’s function must be thoroughly reviewed because skin protectants (such as diaper ointments), antiperspirants, treatments for dandruff or acne mouthwashes marketed with therapeutic claims, are classified as drugs thus losing the ground to market them as cosmetics. Since post-marketing surveillance and adverse events are monitored stringently, thorough tracking and reporting can be challenging which may include additional revenue burden.
