A total of 369 cosmetic products were registered with The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the past four months (Jan-Apr), including new products and renewal of registration.
Under the guidance of the Ministry of Health, the FDA has been supervising the market systematically to ensure the quality of cosmetics that are considered safe for use. According to the Post-Marketing Alert System (PMAS) Report, the 42 cosmetics made in the regional countries were found unregistered and containing toxic substances and prohibited chemicals that are unsafe for use.
Those prohibited chemicals can cause skin irritation, swelling, rash, numbness, muscle cramps, fatigue, headaches, dizziness and depression. Long-term exposure to those substances can also result in kidney failure and other chronic diseases.
Thus, cosmetic importing companies, distributors, wholesalers and retailers should not ethically distribute unregistered cosmetics that are declared unsafe for use. The relevant authorities will take legal action against them under Section 3, Stanza 3 (D) of the Public Health Law for non-compliance. — NN/EM
