Cosmetics and the Federal Drug Administration (FDA)

Updated: Feb 10

HTS is working to ensure FDA compliance in all business aspects. HTS does not guarantee any product effectiveness and will not state claims (for example: this product will clear your maskne aka mask acne). According to the FDA’s website under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act). “A product intended to diagnose, mitigate, treat, or prevent disease, or to affect the structure or function of the body is classified as a drug (FD&C Act, Section 201(g)). If such a product is not generally recognized by qualified experts as safe and effective when used as labeled, it is a “new drug” (FD&C Act, Section 201(p)) and requires an approved New Drug Application to be marketed legally in the United States (FD&C Act, Section 505(a)).”

Our ancestral teachings and the writings in many books, indicate that plants have been used for centuries to treat and heal. In present day (2021) most plants/herbs are considered a “new drug” by the FDA and other governing bodies. As a result, HTS has contracted Finesse Life Holistics, LLC to create herb/botanical monographs. (A monograph is a specialist works of writing which contains an item description, traditional uses, etc.) for our brand and the ingredients (plants, herbs, butters and oils) that we use. Consumers will be able to read HTS’ Herb Monographs and learn about our skincare ingredients and uses. A listing of the monographs will be available on this website and our social media platform (linked below).

Thank you for your continued interest.
