FDA Banned Beauty Products With High Mercury Content

Whitening products that I reviewed in the past top the list of the most searched topic on my blog. It’s just a proof that there are millions of people in the Philippines and elsewhere in the world are high in skin whitening and lightening because they believed fairer skinned people are more beautiful and attractive compared to those with darker skin tone.

Well, people be warned, the FDA just updated the list of the beauty/cosmetic products with high Mercury content, mostly whitening and anti-acne products. These products are already banned by the FDA and if ever you bought one of them you should immediately stop using it or suffer the following consequences which are the adverse effects of Mercury Poisoning.

Signs and Symptoms of Mercury Poisoning

    • irritability
    • shyness
    • tremors
    • changes in vision or hearing
    • memory problems
    • depression
    • numbness and tingling in hands, feet or around mouth

    Other possible adverse health effects of mercury in cosmetic products are kidney damage, skin rashes, skin discoloration, scarring as well as anxiety, depression or psychosis, peripheral neuropathy, and neurodevelopment deficits for fetuses of pregnant women.

      Yes this is true ,I used St. Dalfour France Whitening Cream before.But I stop it,once you stop it you can see the side effect like having a dark skin..and some spots or more skin trouble you will encounter.When I use this before yes it was good ,just a week you can see the difference and the negative difference for a months ,lyk the symptoms said ,shyness(I am a hapoy go lucky person)Bluredness in eyes and in hearing.But thank God because I have my anti Cervical Cancer Vacine and many vitamins and healthy food I ate.But I noticed there’s also an addiction to this product “St. Dalfour France Whitening Cream” I’m still longing for it.But I know it’s banned and I will never use it.I am here in Korea now ,and trying to get my good looking skin ,Hope my best to find the best product here in Korea ,Hope that is safe and no side effects especially cancerous.
      Do beware to others too ,especially in the Philippines there’s a lot I know who still sale this products,especially online,even in big companies.
