The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) is calling for a moratorium on all new products containing ingredients derived from the skin.
In a statement on Wednesday, the organization said “we believe this product is not safe for consumers to use in the first place.”
The AAD called for an end to the use of any product that has been tested in a clinical trial.
“We also urge consumers to exercise caution in applying the products they use to their skin,” the statement continued.
The AAd called for a ban on products containing parabens, alcohols, synthetic ingredients, and artificial fragrance ingredients, which are known to cause health issues, and the elimination of any fragrance ingredient containing paraffin wax, a synthetic material used in cosmetics.
The organization also said the AAD supports “all appropriate regulatory and scientific action” in the wake of the FDA’s announcement, which they said is the first step in ending the “manufacturing, distribution, and sale of such products.”
The AAD also called on the FDA to ensure “a robust regulatory environment” for cosmetics and fragrance ingredients.
