Important Note: Colloidal oatmeal is registered as an OTC skin protectant drug with the FDA (Category I, minimum concentration 0.007% and 0.003% when in combination with mineral oil). This means that if you want to sell a finished product containing colloidal oatmeal and you make a skin protectant claim (incl. rashes, eczema, poison ivy, oak or sumac, insect bites), colloidal oatmeal must then be listed under 'Active Ingredients' on the label. Also, your facility and your product must be registered with the FDA and you must operate under cGMP guidelines. However, if no skin protectant drug claims are made on the label, colloidal oatmeal is not considered a OTC drug and no registration is needed.
