The information in the tables below is a monthly report of activity in FDA’s Voluntary Cosmetic Registration Program (VCRP)

Because the law does not require cosmetic firms to register their establishments or file their product formulations with FDA, participation in this program is voluntary. For this reason, the information below does not indicate the total number of companies manufacturing or marketing cosmetics in this country, or all cosmetic products on the market.
