Did you know of some listed skincare products that are blacklisted by the Ministry of Health (KKM)?
...and why are these products blacklisted in Malaysia? Well, it's cause these product contain chemical substances like Mercury, Hydroquinone and Tretinoin!
Mercury: An extremely TOXIC substance because it can easily enter into your body through skin absorption and the mercury could cause damage to kidneys and the nervous system.
Hydroquinone: It can cause skin redness, hyperpigmentation, discoloration and may increase the risk of skin cancer.
Tretinoin: SHOULD ONLY be used under medical supervision because it can cause skin redness, peeling and it is very sensitive to sunlight.
TAKE NOTE: If you suspect the product that you use contains Mercury, Hydroquinone and Tretinoin, Stop using it and immediately get rid of it girl!
TOP 3 Famous Skincare Products that has been blacklisted In Malaysia:
