Anti-Aging, Rejuvenating, and Repairing Claims

Did you know about the FDA's Import Alert 66-38 titled "Skin Care Products Labeled as Anti-Aging Creams" of 1988?  It clearly states that exaggerated 'anti-aging' claims could cause a product to be unapproved new drug.  This alert was the basis for understanding restrictions on cosmetics claims like anti-aging, rejuvenating and repairing.  At the end of 2017, the import alert was withdrawn. What to learn more about this topic?  Marie Gale, who wrote a book on Soap and Cosmetic Labeling and currently writes news, updates about labeling, gmp, and regulations on her site on, wrote an article called Anti-Aging Rejuvenating and Repairing Claims.
