NAFDAC alerts public on ban of ‘Dex Luxury bar soap’

The National Agency for Food and Drugs Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has alerted the public regarding the ban on the sale of Dex Luxury Bar Soap (No 6 mystic flower) by the European Union (EU). 

The EU has prohibited the marketing of this product due to its non-compliance with the Cosmetic Products Regulation, as it reportedly contains Butyphenyl Methylpropional (BMHCA), a substance deemed harmful to the reproductive system.  

This ingredient poses risks to the health of unborn children and may also cause skin sensitization, prompting regulatory and public authorities in the EU to impose a ban on its marketing. 

NAFDAC, therefore, urged individuals in possession of the banned product to discontinue its sale or use and submit their stock to the nearest NAFDAC office.
