FDA sometimes receives questions about the safe use of cosmetics during pregnancy. If you are pregnant and have concerns about cosmetic products or ingredients, contact your health care provider. While FDA cant give medical advice, we can provide some general safety information. Companies and individuals who manufacture or market cosmetics are legally responsible for making sure their products are safe. Color additives must be approved by FDA before they are used in cosmetics or other FDA-regulated products. This product must not be used for dyeing the eyelashes or eyebrows; to do so may cause blindness. along with instructions for doing a skin test. For example, FDA periodically buys cosmetics and analyzes them, especially if we are aware of a potential problem. When we identify a safety problem, we let the public know and take action against the product.
