ENOUGH FALSE PROMISES
A cosmetic that ‘claims’ to have medicinal properties.
DON’T BE FOOLED
It’s a term created by beauty industry marketers.
The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) doesn’t even recognise the term.
The truth is only medicines can affect the structure or function of the body.
Any beauty product that makes such claims must undergo clinical trials and be classed as a medicine, if successful.
While some beauty products may contain ingredients that are known to have beneficial effects.
The amount they contain or the method of delivery will be ineffective.
WHAT ARE THE DANGERS?
There are two dangers if cosmetics aren’t tested properly: either you’ll be cheated out of your money or, in the unlikely event that they do have medicinal properties, they could potentially be dangerous in wrong doses.
HOW DO THEY GET AWAY WITH THIS?
Clever marketing companies will use unclear language such ‘helps,’ ‘could reduce’ or the “appearance of’ to protect themselves.
Don’t be fooled.
Insist on only evidence-backed, regulated methods of skincare from fully trained healthcare professionals.
