Bustos Law Group and Citruslabs: A new service offering

A partnership that benefits your brand

Citruslabs is excited to announce our recent partnership with the Bustos Law Group, an FDA compliance law firm that works with companies in regulated industries like food, supplements, cosmetics, devices, and OTC drugs. As a leading provider of clinical trial solutions, Citruslabs is committed to delivering the most comprehensive and effective services to your wellness brand. We believe this partnership will enable us to do just that.

As part of our partnership, we will now include a legal claims review at the end of each study, providing wellness brands with the legal assurance they need to make claims about their products. This is a critical step in today's regulatory environment, where even small mistakes can lead to significant consequences, including FDA warning letters and trouble with the FTC.

Why it’s important to stay compliant with claims

Staying compliant with claims is more important than ever, and our partnership with Bustos Law Group will ensure that your brand and products are protected. Making false or misleading claims about a product can result in regulatory action, which can cause reputational damage and loss of consumer trust.

The FDA has issued warning letters to many companies in the past for making unsubstantiated claims about their products. Moreover, the FTC has taken legal action against companies for misleading advertising claims, resulting in significant financial penalties. Being transparent and accurate about product claims is not only a legal requirement, but it's also essential for building and maintaining a positive brand reputation and increasing customer loyalty.

In addition, the FDA and FTC have recently released legislative updates in regard to making claims about supplements and cosmetics. Legislative updates mean these regulatory organizations will have a sharper eye on your advertising and marketing. Even small brands will need to stay compliant.

A unique service offering

No other contract research organization (CRO) or clinical trial providers currently provide this unique service offering. It is an added layer of protection for your wellness brand, allowing you to have confidence in the claims you make about your products after completing a clinical trial with Citruslabs.

Most CROs will provide you with your clinical trial results at the end of your clinical study as the end of their contracted work. We take it a step further by synthesizing the data to extract the most important, statistically significant product claims, then we provide language to help illustrate these claims. We work with Bustos Law Group to legally verify the claims we provide during our final results call so you can feel confident in taking your results and integrating them immediately into your marketing, website, and product packaging.

A free resource for you

We recently hosted a webinar, "Creating Product Claims: Think Like a Lawyer," in which Heather Bustos and Susanne Mitschke discussed the importance of compliance with product claims and the potential consequences of non-compliance. This webinar is a valuable resource for your wellness brand looking to ensure you’re making accurate and compliant claims about your products.

Overall, our partnership with the Bustos Law Group will be a game-changer for your brand when completing a clinical trial with Citruslabs. You’ll gain the legal assurance you need to make effective product claims. We are proud to be at the forefront of this unique service offering and are excited to see the benefits it will bring to your brand.
