Nigerian Senate on Tuesday expressed concern with the damaging effects of bleaching cream products.
The senators during plenary directed the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) to regulate importation, formulation, and sale of harmful cosmetics within Nigeria.
This was after a resolution to ensure the regulation of the formulation and distribution of cosmetics, especially bleaching cream, was passed by the senators.
Senator Remi Tinubu had raised the motion to urge NAFDAC to wake up to its responsibility to protect Nigerians against harmful cosmetics.
She expressed concern with the proliferation of small and medium enterprises and businesses that have flooded the Nigerian market with beauty products whose production are not well-regulated.
