AN EMPTY CART
You have no items in your shopping cart.
This entry was posted on February 2, 2017.
Over the past few years I have noticed during my weekly rounds of grocery shopping and numerous visits to mass merchandisers across the United States, consumers have become more conscious of the ingredients in their favorite products. Taking the time to graze over the exact components of each product before making its way into their shopping cart. With this being said, we would like to save you some time in the possible near future, giving you the lowdown on our own product labeling.
From consumed products, such as food, all the way across the board to over-the-counter (OTC) pharmaceutical drugs, every product packaging has its own guideline put forth by the FDA for ingredients. This is so there is no confusion when comparing similar categorized products. So what do your labels mean when it comes to the order of our ingredients you say? Well…you can read for yourself by clicking the link below or continue reading my quick summary of our ingredient layout.
According to the FDA; "For OTC drug products that contain both drug and cosmetic ingredients, the drug ingredients are considered the active ingredients, and the cosmetic ingredients are considered the inactive ingredients. (See §§ 201.66(b)(2) and 201.66(b)(8).)" http://www.accessdata.fda.gov/scripts/cdrh/cfdocs/cfcfr/CFRSearch.cfm?FR=201.66
MAXIMUM ARTHRITIS and CONTINUOUS SPRAY, both in the same product category, and overall have the same exact ACTIVE INGREDIENT percentage based on its overall weight.
What does differ, is the obvious application methods, but more over it’s the INACTIVE INGREDIENTS that create this difference. And according to the FDA regulations on OTC products, we must list these in alphabetical order, not by percentages of actual ingredients.
MAXIMUM ARTHRITIS Inactive Ingredients read alphabetically like this:
Acrylates/c10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Allantoin, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice(Aloe Vera), Cetyl AlcoholD-Glucosamine, Dimethicone, Disodium EDTA, D-Panthenol, Emu Oil, Ethylhexyglycerin, F D & C Blue#1, Glycerin, Glyceryl Stearate and Peg-100 Stearate, Methylsulfonylmethane, Mineral Oil, Phenoxyethanol, Polysorbate 80, Stearic Acid, Triethanolamine, Tocopherol Acetate(vitamin E), Water.
CONTINUOUS SPRAY Inactive Ingredients read alphabetically like this:
Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice (Aloe Vera), Caprylyl Glycol, Diazolidinyl Urea, Dimethyl Sulfone,
Disodium EDTA, DMDM Hydantoin, Emu Oil, Glucosamine Sulfate, Glycerin, Glyceryl Caprylate, Lecithin, Oleic Acid, Panthenol, Phenoxyethanol, Polysorbate 20, Sorbitol, Water, Xanthan Gum.
Now we cannot say the same for every other drug fact /nutritional fact panel out there…but this is when you as an informed consumer can make the proper decision for you and your family.
