It piqued my interest and, knowing that Florida already had extensive regulations covering cosmetic manufacturers, I did a little research. It does not appear that it effectively changed the existing regulations concerning soap and cosmetics.
It looks like the bill requires that the administration of cosmetic permits and enforcement will transfer from the Florida Dept of Health to the Department of Business and Professional Regulation effective October 1, although neither of their websites obviously mention it.
What the regulations cover In addition to drugs and medical devices, the regulations cover cosmetics, which are defined as: An article, with the exception of soap, that is: This is the same definition of cosmetic that is used by the FDA although the FDA also includes the exact definition of soap.
However, if the soap in question makes cosmetic claims beautifies, promotes attractiveness, etcthen is DOES fall under the cosmetic regulations. See my book, Soap and Cosmetic Labelingpages 16 — 17 and Chapter 9 for more details. Anyone meeting the definition of a manufacturer, which includes soapmakers who are making soap labeled as a cosmetic, and anyone who is a repackager is subject to the Florida regulations concerning cosmetics.
That means that the cosmetic regulations also apply to suppliers or vendors who sell ingredients intended for use in cosmetic products. Permits required A permit is required for each person and establishment that intends to operate as a cosmetic manufacturer or repackager in the State of Florida.
However, if the person only labels or changes the labeling of a cosmetic but does not open the container sealed by the manufacturer of the product, a permit is not required. The permit may only be issued to a natural person not a business entity who is at least 18 years old.
An establishment that is a place of residence may not receive a permit and may not operate as a cosmetic manufacturer or repackager. A county or municipality may not issue an occupational license for a cosmetic manufacturer or repackager unless they already have a permit from the state.
The permit must be posted in a conspicuous place on the licenses premises. When I checked several years ago, the actual forms were available online. However, it appears they are being revised and must be requested from the Dept of Health. Product registration In addition to the manufacturer registration and permits, any person who manufactures, packages, repackages, labels, or relabels a drug or cosmetic in the state of Florida must register that product with the department.
Cosmetic labelers who are not required to be permitted as a manufacturer must still register their relabeled products. So if your cosmetic is made by someone else for you and you label it, you still must register the product.
The actual labels must accompany the registration form. Products that are identical except for name, size, color, or scent only require one registration. All subsequent identical products to that registration should be listed on an Identical Product Certification form. All product registration applications are to be sent to Tallahassee office for approval of certain labeling requirements.
A product must be registered before any sales of the product occur. The FL Dept of Health has the application form and instructions available online. I did note, however, that both forms mention only drugs and are dated There may be more updated forms available.
Up to 30 products may be listed on one Certificate of Free Sale. When you register as a manufacturer, you explicitly give permission to the state to inspect, monitor and investigate during business hours to ensure you are following the regulations.
If violations are found, the State may issue a warning letter and will require you to fix any issues. They have the right to stop the sale of any adulterated or misbranded products and to seize products if they feel it is warranted. They can issue fines as well. It seems to be up to the department at the time of the inspection.
The manufacture, repackaging, sale, delivery, or holding or offering for sale of any cosmetic that is adulterated or misbranded or has otherwise been rendered unfit for human or animal use; The adulteration or misbranding of any cosmetic; The sale, distribution, purchase, trade, holding, or offering of any cosmetic in violation of the Florida Statutes Section ; The dissemination of any false or misleading advertisement of a cosmetic; The refusal or constructive refusal: To allow the department to enter or inspect an establishment in which drugs, devices, or cosmetics are manufactured, processed, repackaged, sold, brokered, or held; To allow inspection of any record of that establishment; To allow the department to enter and inspect any vehicle that is being used to transport cosmetics; or To allow the department to take samples of any cosmetic.
Providing the department with false or fraudulent records, or making false or fraudulent statements, regarding any matter within the provisions of the Florida Statutes Section ; Failure to obtain a permit or registration, or operating without a valid permit when a permit or registration is required by this part for that activity; The dissemination of any false advertisement of any cosmetic.
This is true in all the US as well as in Florida. Here are the actual definitions, as defined in the Florida Statutes. These are almost exactly the same as the Federal definitions: A cosmetic is adulterated: This product contains ingredients which may cause skin irritation on certain individuals, and a preliminary test according to accompanying directions should first be made.Some little changes that we can make to help our young ones with this problem are to: keep fruits/veggies on hand and easily accessible, limit cookies, candies, chips, sugary drinks, etc.
