FDA Warns Loreal About Anti-Aging Claims
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has warned Loreal, the parent company of Lancome USA, to stop making certain claims about its anti aging products, news outlets report.
About the FDA Warning
- Statements that the products “stimulate cell regeneration” are not allowed, for example.
- The reason is that any product that purports to have an effect on the structure or composition of the body is classified as a “drug” by the FDA, making it necessary for the product to be more strictly tested and regulated.
- Because the claims have not been proven, the pricing is under scrutiny. For example, a 1.7 ounce contained of Genifique repair cream costs $98.
- Some of the products under question are Lancome USA’s Repair Youth Activating Night Cream, Absolute Eye Precious Cells Advanced Regenerating and Reconstructing Eye Cream.
