UMA Oils Corrects To FDA’s Satisfafction

Aromatherapy skin care line UMA is issued an FDA close-out letter.

If you’re a regular reader of our sister site LisaBarger you may have seen our coverage of the official FDA warning letter sent to UMA Oils and its founder, Shrankhla Upadhyay. Back in July, following an online inspection of the company’s website by the US Food and Drug Administration, or FDA, Upadhyay was formally ordered to remove claims she was making for 4 products:

  • Deep Nourish Extreme Dryness Treatment
  • Total Rejuvenation Night Face Oil
  • Deeply Clarifying Face Mask
  • Deep Clarifying Blemish Spot Treatment

The allegedly illegal claims were fairly typical of the kind you see used to market aromatherapy skin care products . . . various products suggested they could kill acne-causing bacteria, reduce inflammation, diminish the appearance of scars and so forth.

The FDA, of course, reminded Upadhyay that none of those products had been officially recognized as safe or effective for conditions like eczema and acne. The agency gave UMA the normal 15 working days to respond.

And it appears that Upadhyay has–and has done so fully. Recently, FDA issued UMA a close-out letter, confirming that Upadhyay has addressed all the concerns outlined in the warning letter. (When we covered the original warning letter back on August 01, 2017, all the claims we looked up had already been removed.
