§622.  Misbranded cosmetics

A cosmetic is considered misbranded if it has been found to be such by any department of the United States government, or:

(1)  If its labeling is false or misleading in any particular or if it is injurious to health under the conditions of use prescribed in the labeling or advertising thereof.  

(2)  If it is in package form and it does not bear a label containing: (a) the name and place of business of the manufacturer, packer, seller, or distributor; and (b) an accurate statement of the quantity of the contents in terms of weight, measure, or numerical count.  However, under Subparagraph (b) of this Paragraph reasonable variations shall be permitted and exemptions as to small packages shall be established by regulations prescribed by the department where compliance with that provision would be impracticable.  

(3)  If any word, statement, or other information required on the label under any provision of this Part is not prominently placed thereon in such a manner as to be easily seen and in such terms as to be readily understood by the purchasers and users of the articles under customary conditions of purchase and use.  Due consideration shall be given to the size of the package.  

Amended by Acts 1978, No. 786, §5, eff. July 17, 1978.
