Will sesame become the next government regulated product ingredient? If Senators Chris Murphy, Richard Blumenthal and Ed Markey have anything to say yes. In a recent letter to the acting FDA commissioner, the senators made a request that sesame be inspected for cross-contact and that it be listed by name on ingredient lists, similar to what is required for products containing nuts or made in facilities that produce products containing nuts.
Sesame seed oil is used commonly in anti aging skin care products and cosmetics. NaturDerm products do not contain sesame seed ingredients.
