NAFDAC Bans Popular Skin Lightening Cream



In a move to protect the health and well-being of Nigerians, the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has announced a ban on Caro White Skin Lightening Beauty Lotion in Nigeria.

This decision comes after the European Union’s Rapid Alert System for Dangerous Non-Food Products (RAPEX) and the Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety (SCCS) deemed the product non-compliant with cosmetic regulations due to its high concentration of kojic acid.

Before the decision to ban Caro White, NAFDAC had earlier alerted the public to the EU’s recall of the product, and has now taken the necessary steps to ensure that it is no longer available in the Nigerian market. The agency’s swift action demonstrates its commitment to safeguarding the health and safety of consumers in the country.

The ban on Caro White Skin Lightening Beauty Lotion is a significant move by NAFDAC, as the product has been widely used in Nigeria and other countries for skin lightening purposes. However, the high concentration of kojic acid in the product poses a significant risk to consumers, and NAFDAC’s ban is aimed at preventing any potential harm.

Consumers are advised to stop using the product immediately and to seek alternative products that are safe and compliant with regulatory standards. NAFDAC’s ban on Caro White Skin Lightening Beauty Lotion is a welcome move, and we commend the agency for its proactive approach to ensuring the safety and well-being of Nigerians.
