Had a bad reaction to a product- tell the FDA
With MedWatch now on the prowl, individuals can either call or go to the site and report an issue that you’ve had with a product. Issues can involve odd coloring, bad odor, and adverse physical reactions to products. Even if you’ve applied the product on wrong and had a reaction, you can still report it. The FDA really wants to crack down on companies that are using unsafe ingredients and if enough people report, this would help the FDA single them out.
Products that you can report include perfumes, face paints, hair removal creams, permanent makeup, baby lotions and oils, deodorants, and face and body cleansers.
The FDA seems to finally tackling the cosmetics industry which has been roaming free for the most part. Procedures like the The Brazilian Keratin Treatment haven’t faced nearly enough scrutiny and there have been controversial products on the market for years. But the FDA seems to be righting itself, recently even going after the relatively small company behind StemCellin Deep Wrinkle Serum for the way they were marketing their products.
