Dangerous cosmetics withdrawn from the market

The EC’S Rapid Exchange of Information System (RAPEX) informs member states that six cosmetic products have been withdrawn from EU markets after they were deemed dangerous.

Specifically, five perfumes manufactured in Czechia have been classified as unsuitable for use as they do not contain a list of allergens in their description. Also, a face paint, manufactured in Finland has been withdrawn from EU markets due to risk of microbial contamination.

See the products here.

Cypriot authorities urge citizens who have the products in their possession to stop using them or inform the Pharmaceutical Services at 22 608606/22 608663 if they find them in the market.
