French consumer authorities have seized five potentially dangerous cosmetics made in the Ivory Coast, said the EU’s rapid consumer alert service RAPEX. These were three G&G branded Dynamiclair skin lighteners; a Dawny branded lightening, anti-blemish beauty oil; and L’Abidjanaise skin lightening cream.

The G&G and Dawny products were seized for containing clobetasol propionate, banned under the EU cosmetics directive. The L’Abidjanaise cream was seized for containing 7.1% hydroquinone as a skin whitening agent, which “can pose a threat to health” if applied liberally and regularly, said a RAPEX note.
