With the exception of color additives and a few prohibited ingredients, a cosmetic manufacturer may use almost any raw material as a cosmetic ingredient and market the product without an approval from the FDA,”- FDA.
The cosmetic industry is not FDA approved but FDA regulated. So, it has been flying under this umbrella for the past 81 years. The last piece of federal regulation (a single page) was passed in 1938. What this means is that cosmetic companies are free to do whatever they want without government supervision, bottling and packaging known carcinogens and endocrine disruptors into products that we use every single day, such as mascara, face wash, shampoo, deodorant, etc. Companies can use any adjectives to market their products like “green” and “eco”. This means that what goes on the front of the package has no relevance to what ingredients they list at the back of it. They can hide any ingredient behind the words “fragrance” and “parfum”. It is truly a “whatever works is good enough” formula.
