Women and beauty products are inseparable. Beauty products have taken on great significance in the lives of modern women. Knowing exactly which product your skin or body needs with many available options can be challenging.
Many women put their lives at risk by using medical beauty products that are dangerous to them without realising it because of a strong desire to look young and beautiful.
Among the most highly reported cases are related to the use of poisonous ingredients that give an immediate whitening effect but at the same time may cause skin damage, permanent scarring, etc.
Every time there is a commotion about cosmetic products being banned by the NPRA due to the prohibited substances used, the government works hard to warn product manufacturers not to be careless in producing safe goods for consumers.
Recently, five cosmetic products have been found to contain scheduled poison, says the Health Ministry’s National Pharmaceutical Regulatory Agency (NPRA).
13 Skincare Treatment Cream, Ninaskincare Skin Puteh Moisturiser and Skin Dessert Cream, which contain mercury; Karisma Birdnest Gel, which contains hydroquinone and tretinoin; and Haemun Cream, which contains miconazole.
Cosmetic products in Malaysia are regulated under the Control of Drugs and Cosmetic Regulations (CDCR) 1984, promulgated under the Sale of Drugs Act 1952.
Individuals (found guilty of violating) the regulations can be fined up to RM25,000 or face a maximum of three years imprisonment, or both, for the first offence and not more than RM50,000 or jailed up to five years, or both, for subsequent offences.
While companies that commit such an offence could be fined up to RM50,000 the first time and RM100,000 for subsequent offences.
Would you instead go through a hassle-free documentation process or risk being punished for breaking the law with a fine, jail sentence, or public humiliation?
