Does FDA approve cosmetics before they go on the market?
“FDA’s legal authority over cosmetics is different from our authority over other products we regulate, such as drugs, biologics, and medical devices. Under the law, cosmetic products and ingredients do not need FDA premarket approval, with the exception of color additives.”

Remember, our skin is a huge delivery system to the entire body. What goes on your skin is absorbed and circulated to the rest of your body. So it stands to reason that we should be concerned about what things are being put into most cosmetics on the market. This is why I prefer to use products produced by a company that provides full disclosure and integrity.
Here are a few of my favorite facial care products from Young Living Essential Oils.
