MedWatch/FDA

I filed a report with MedWatch, an arm of the FDA that handles reports of unsafe cosmetics as well as any adverse reactions. This was easily the most confusing of all the complaints I filed, as the form also covers drugs, biologics, nutritional products, and medical devices. It was hard not to get overwhelmed with all the requests for information, but luckily I have worked in a doctors office before so I am versed in HIPPA so this did not discourage me. I simply provided as much information as possible. I figure that if I skipped a step that they will contact me for further information.

In filling out the form I was asked if I had any of the product available for testing. I did let them know I have some, but this may affect my refund from GS as they are requesting return of pigments in order to recover funds. I did find this a bit of an odd request as Lela has stated on GS Facebook page that she has already been contacted by the FDA and as such should have known that they were requesting that we keep the pigments for testing.

I did not receive a confirmation number from the FDA, but I did receive a confirmation email.
