Antimicrobial products making only deodorant claims are cosmetics, CTFA, SDA argue.

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

ANTIMICROBIAL PRODUCTS WITH DEODORANT CLAIMS ARE COSMETICS -- CTFA/SDA maintain in June 15 comments to FDA arguing that such products should not be "subject to the purview" of the June 1994 OTC healthcare antiseptic tentative final monograph. In joint comments, the Cosmetic, Toiletry and Fragrance Association and the Soap and Detergent Association asserted that the "distinction between a cosmetic and a drug does not depend upon a product's formulation or the ingredient(s) contained in it." Instead, they argued, the classification hinges upon the "claims or representations made for the product."
