As is well-known, cosmetic companies are not required to register products with the U.​S. Food and Drug Administ­ration (FDA). However, the Voluntary Cosmetic Registration Program (VCRP) allows proactive businesses to do just that.

In addition to the voluntary product reports, 117 online accounts were activated. Since the launch of the online system in September 2018, the total number of active online accounts has reached 4,761; the number of active cosmetic establishment registrations is now 2,692; and the number of filed products now totals 17,357.
