The Regulation of Cosmetics: Under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, cosmetic products and ingredients do not require FDA approval before they go on the market. The exception is color additives (other than those used in most hair dyes). Companies and individuals who market cosmetics have the legal responsibility to ensure the safety of their products.
Safety Data and Its Limitations: FDA monitors the safety of cosmetic products that are being marketed and acts on products that are established to be harmful to consumers when used as intended.
The agency has a number of ways to monitor these products but often the available safety information is limited:
Voluntary Cosmetic Registration Program: FDA encourages cosmetic firms to report product formulations through the VCRP. The VCRP database provides important information on these cosmetics. However, the companies are not legally required to tell FDA about their products and safety data.
Inspections: FDA can inspect manufacturing facilities to determine if proper controls and practices are being followed. FDA also works with U.S. Customs and Border Protection to examine imported cosmetics. But because resources are limited, only a few establishments are inspected each year, and just a fraction of imports are physically examined.

When I first arrived to LA, I was this Jersey girl who was chasing the dream in Hollywood. I was still figuring out who I was, what I really wanted to be and what was going to make me happy. When I started my fitness journey with Michael Blanks and Irene Blanks Drenched Workout, I realized how much fitness made me happy.
Even to this day, I celebrate me whenever I do a Drenched Cardio work out. Michael and Irene’s passion for transforming people’s bodies is truly contagious. They really want you to have fun while fighting through the pain and sweat. The best part is whenever I show up for my intense high energy cardio session, I’m always greeted with a smile. They help me feel good about me.
The Drenched workout was the beginning of who I am today. I’m so grateful for the Blanks family for making me apart of their family. The success I have today is because of the faith, love, and support you always have for me. Thank you! xo
