All, I am planning on selling men's shaving soap this summer. I have been trying to make sense of the labelling requirements for shaving soaps. I will be labelling my shaving soaps as cosmetics. My question to all the experienced soapers out there is as follows - Is it necessary to list the 740.10 warning on the principal display panel? The warning text is "Warning - The safety of this product has not been determined." When I read through this https://www.fda.gov/cosmetics/cosmetics-labeling-regulations/cosmetics-labeling-guide#clgc it does seem like it is required. See below pic and excerpt. It also suggests, that the warning is not needed if the safety of the product has been adequately substantiated. Do I need to get a toxicology test done on my product prior to selling? It seems like safety of the product can be adequately substantiated by relying on available data for similar products. As most shaving soaps have a similar formulation, is there a repository of safety data available publicly? Excerpt from FDA Labelling regulations Cosmetics With Unsubstantiated Safety Warning--The safety of this product has not been determined. 21 CFR 740.10 A cosmetic is considered misbranded if its safety has not adequately been substantiated, and it does not bear the following conspicuous statement on the PDP: Warning - The safety of this product has not been determined. The safety of a cosmetic may be considered adequately substantiated if experts qualified by scientific training and experience can reasonably conclude from the available toxicological and other test data, chemical composition, and other pertinent information that the product is not injurious to consumers under conditions of customary use and reasonably foreseeable conditions of misuse. The safety of a cosmetic can adequately be substantiated by: a. Reliance on available toxicological test data on its ingredients and on similar products, and b. Performance of additional toxicological and other testing appropriate in the light of the existing data. Pic from FDA labelling requirements suggesting that the 740.10 warning is needed on the PDP.
