The FDA is given the authority under Sections 601 (a) and (c) and 701 (a) of the FD&C Act to issue package security requirements for cosmetics. Requirements for tamper-resis-
tant packaging for cosmetic liquid oral hygiene products (e.g., mouthwashes and breath fresheners) and all cosmetic vaginal products (e.g., douches and tablets) were promulgated at 21 CFR 700.25. Details about such packaging is found in the FDA's Cosmetics Handbook  and at the FDA website, http://www.fda.gov.
