Datuk Dr Noor Hisah Abdullah, Health Director-General, revealed that scheduled poisons—micronazole, mercury, betamethasone 17-valerate, hydroquinone and tretinoin—are found in these products.

“Micronazole can increase anti-fungal resistance, thus reducing its effectiveness in treating future infections. Betamethasone 17-valerate thins the skin which can cause irritation, acne, change in pigmentation and increase of risk of it absorbing into the blood circulatory system.

Hydroquinone causes redness, discomfort and making skin hypersensitive. The use of tretinoin without supervision can cause peeling as well as hypersensitivity to sunlight. Mercury was banned in cosmetics as it could interfere brain development of young of unborn children.”

— Datuk Dr Noor Hisah Abdullah, Health Director-General.

Those who are using the products are advised to put an immediate halt and seek advice from health professionals if they experience any discomfort.
