Bobbi Brown’s cosmetics company is under scrutiny
Bobbi Diggs Brown’s company is being investigated by the Food and Drug Administration after it allegedly used cosmetics from brands not approved by the FDA to make cosmetic products that were marketed under a brand that had not been approved.
According to an article published by The Washington Post on Monday, the cosmetics company has been accused of using products without being approved by FDA.
The investigation, the article says, comes after several reports of ingredients being used in cosmetics that were not approved for use by the agency.
The FDA confirmed that it is aware of the investigation, according to a statement from the agency’s Public Affairs Office.
In a statement, it said the agency has taken steps to identify and stop products from using ingredients not approved and to remove any items from distribution that contain ingredients not authorized by FDA.
“Bobbi Brown has always maintained that the products sold through its beauty and personal care brands were made under the strictest of quality controls and were not intended to be sold for human consumption,” the company said in a statement.
The investigation comes after the agency was criticized for not doing enough to regulate cosmetics.
In May, the agency said cosmetics should be treated like pharmaceuticals, but in October, it also issued guidelines that it did not expect to be followed.
The agency said it had taken steps such as suspending a cosmetics brand, revoking a license to sell a cosmetic product and prohibiting certain ingredients from being used on cosmetics.
