FDA Update: Webinar about Temporary Tattoos
Following our strategy to share with our visitors all the latest FDA updates regarding we continue with this announcement we received yesterday:
Summer vacation is on the way. Time to pack your swim suit, hit the beach, and perhaps indulge in a little harmless fun. How about getting a temporary tattoo to mark the occasion? What’s the harm?
Just because a tattoo is temporary, however, doesn’t mean it’s risk free. Some consumers report reactions that may be severe and long outlast the temporary tattoos themselves. The risk varies, depending on what’s in the ink. In this webinar, you will learn about different kinds of temporary tattoos and important safety information.
The webinar will be presented by chemist Bhakti Petigara Harp, Ph.D., and epidemiologist Katherine Hollinger, D.V.M., M.P.H. Chemist John Gasper, B.S., M.A., J.D. will moderate the presentation. All three are with FDA’s Office of Cosmetics and Colors (OCAC).
- Moderator: John Gasper, B.S., M.A., J.D.. a chemist with OCAC’s Cosmetics Division.
- Featured Speaker: Bhakti Petigara Harp, Ph.D., a chemist with OCAC’s Colors Technology Team, and Katherine Hollinger, D.V.M, M.P.H., an epidemiologist with OCAC’s Cosmetics Division
