Cosmetics brand Lime Crime finds trouble with the FDA

Published
Oct 13, 2015

Lime Crime, a cosmetics brand, is in hot water following FDA warnings in July and threats of a class-action lawsuit. Arabelle Sicardi of Racked ran an exposé that listed many issues that plague the company. Refinery29 followed suit and discovered from Megan McSeveney, the FDA Press officer that the FDA has not tested the company’s products but it has begun to investigate following six complaints in a two-month period.

The FDA’s notice claims that Lime Crime products are made with ferric ferrocyanide and ultramarines in the Velvetines lip stain, ingredients which violate the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetics Act.
 
A cosmetics expert explained to Sicardi that the lack of FDA approval does not necessarily mean that the ingredients are harmful. Refinery29 added that the ingredients have been approved for use on the face and eyelids, but not the lips. This is not the case in Europe and Japan where the ingredients are fit for use.

Deere’s threats to sue bloggers who wrote negative reviews of her products do not help her reputation, but the company has issued a statement to the controversy on its website, and it has been reported that Lime Crime is working with the FDA to resolve the issues.
 
The Los Angeles-based company recently launched a “Hairspiration” feature on its website that allows customers to shop makeup to complement their pastel hair colors.
