FDA Warns Brazilian Blowout-Like Brand For Undeclared Formaldehyde Risks

This article was originally published in The Rose Sheet

Executive Summary

Agency's warning letter to Van Tibolli Corp identifies a number of product-labeling shortcomings that render two methylene glycol-containing hair smoothers in its GK Hair Taming System with JUVEXIN range adulterated and misbranded. The action could draw attention from NGOs that believe FDA is not sufficiently authorized to take action against such products despite potentially serious recognized risks.
