INCI names - labels in the US


Recommended Posts

One of the versions of the CTFA book uses common (scientific/latin) and says that you can drop what's in (), so common can be the INCI name. The actual law refers to the 2nd edition. It gets confusing because the FDA also has some fingers in the law for cosmetic labeling.

Version 5 says to use common only

Version 6/7 says to use common (scientific)

Version 8 says to use scientific (common)

I've known that some people who've written to the CTFA/FDA organizations have been told that any version of the labeling laws would be OK. For my simpler products I tend to use common. For lotions I use what the vendor gave me for the base I use.
