The United States Food and Drug Administration has just now cautioned people regarding cosmetic products which contain mercury. Some companies promote them as anti-aging skin creams and beauty and antiseptic soaps.
” How will you know if mercury is in the cosmetic, especially one that’s marketed as “anti-aging” or “skin lightening”? US RDA asks.
It is simple.
“Check the label. If the words “mercurous chloride,” “calomel,” “mercuric,” “mercurio,” or “mercury” are listed on the label, mercury’s in it” the agency answered. ” You should stop using the product immediately”. FDA cautioned the consumer.
