Understanding FDA Cosmetic vs. Drug Claims

Now that you want to turn your hobby into a business and sell your products, you will have to understand the rules of making claims about your product is very important.  The rules and regulations for selling bath and body products fall are created by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) and are put into place for the safety of the consumer. According to The Soap Queen, soap and cosmetics should not make claims that could confuse your product as a drug.  And the FDA regulates and defines cosmetics, drugs and soap differently.  I can be tricky to understand these definitions and what type of claims are appropriate for each one of them.  In a recent post called Understanding FDA Cosmetic vs. Drugs, The Soap Queen explains what you need to know.  So I would suggest reading this post before you start selling your products.
