FDA Globilization Act of 2008
July 5, 2008
The FDA has presented to Congress the FDA Globilization Act of 2008, an act that if passed in its present form could devastate small natural bath and beauty companies like ours. The issue that will affect most small bath and beauty companies is the registration fee they will impose on all businesses within the cosmetic industry, a minimum of $2,000.00 yearly and up to $12,000.00 per year. Those fees alone could put many small natural bath and beauty companies out of business, while it would have little effect on the big name brand cosmetic corporations.
Donna Maria Coles Johnson, founder of Indie Beauty Network, is spearheading an effort to fight enactment of the proposed FDA Globilization Act of 2008. It is our hope that with the advocacy of Donna Maria and IBN, small bath and beauty businesses will be able to stay alive and competitive in the marketplace.
