The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a warning for consumers to be extremely careful when using skin creams, beauty products, or lotions. Why? It recently came to light that these products might contain mercury.
These products are marketed to consumers for “skin rejuvenation” or “skin lightners” and are advertised as creams that remove sun spots or age spots, blemishes and wrinkles. Some of these products are advertised to teenagers to treat acne.
Mercury is not approved for use in almost any product and is very unsafe. Exposure to mercury can have significant health risks including damage to the kidneys and the nervous system.
If you are using such products, you should check the ingredients of the product and if it contains “mercurous chloride,” “calomel,” “mercuric,” “mercurio,” or “mercury,” you should stop using the product immediately!
