Health danger from fake cosmetics

Users of cosmetics must now be aware of the prospect that application of ointment, lotion or cream on their body can pose great skin or health dangers. Experts say use of fake cosmetics may cause cancer and other serious ailments for users. Since substandard and fake cosmetics and toiletries are wrapped in the labels of reputed local and international brands, unsuspecting people quickly fall victims to the lure and harm their own body.

The producers of the counterfeit cosmetics little care that the ingredients they use can be devastating for the users in terms of health, yet due to lack of action against them the sale of counterfeit cosmetics has now become very common. The Directorate of the National Consumer Rights Protection (DNCRP) itself has admitted to this reality.

To contain the fake cosmetics producers, the law enforcing agencies have now positively started operation and, according to a report of this newspaper, a mobile court of RAB arrested five persons Wednesday for their alleged involvement with fake cosmetics production. The force seized counterfeit products with the arrest of persons. Besides production of fake cosmetics, recently some importers have started selling foreign products without the importer’s label.

We have often come by news that using processed hena preparations in tubes users irreparably burnt their hands and legs. It is but an irony. Instead of going for chemicals, women choose natural hena paste sold in tubes only to become victims of skin injury. But they are cheated.

It has been reported that fake cosmetics have flooded the capital’s Gausia market, Old Dhaka's Chawkbazar and shopping malls across the capital. If a buyer is unaware, s/he can buy counterfeit perfumes, moisturisers, lotions, face wash, soaps, powders, shampoo, bleach, hair dyes, conditioners, oils, depilatories and shaving creams. If this is the scenario of Dhaka, one can easily guess the picture across the country would not be the different.

Therefore, the response to this wrongdoing has to be vigorous, and the law enforcers must remain always alert to nab the culprits. Only operation of mobile court once in a blue moon will not change the scenario. The users of cosmetics also have to be conscious so that the cosmetics they are of quality and will not cause harm to them.
