CitationCosmeceuticals or CosmePSEUDOcals: Examining the FDAâ€™s Under-sight of Celebrity Dermatologists in the Cosmeceuticals Industry (2005 Third Year Paper)
AbstractThis paper will examine the Food and Drug Administration's regulation of the cosmeceuticals industry by exploring the legal (and ethical) implications of the industry's employment of physicians and dermatologists who sell products which the doctors themselves have a financial stake in. By focusing on famed dermatologist, cosmeceutical entrepreneur, and bestselling author Dr. Nicholas Perricone, this paper will elucidate the legal repercussions of using doctors to market and legitimize the drug-like claims of products that are in essence, just glorified cosmetics.
