Regulatory Information:FD&C Blue No. 1 is a FDA-approved color additive and is subject to batch certification. It may be safely used for coloring externally applied cosmetics, including cosmetics intended for use in the area of the eye, in amounts consistent with good manufacturing practice. Batch certification means that this product has been certified batch by batch by the FDA. When we open such a FDA-certified package and repack it for you into smaller sizes, the repacked containers lose their certification.
