Publiko pinag-iingat sa paggamit ng skin whitening product

PINAG-IINGAT ang publiko sa paggamit ng skin-whitening produtcs matapos na madiskubreng nagtataglay ito ng mataas na level ng mercury.

Ayon sa EcoWaste Coalition, 19 produkto na pampaputi ang nakitaan ng mataas na level ng mercury kung saan mas mataas ito sa 52,100 parts per million (ppm) na mas mataas sa 1 ppm na safety limit.

“We have uncovered an ugly truth behind some cosmetics with outrageous amounts of mercury that are directly applied to the skin. These products are terribly harmful to health, totally not pretty and blatantly illegal,” ayon kay Aileen Lucero, coalition safe cosmetics campaigner.

Ang mercury umano ay maaring makaapeko at makasira sa balat at utak ng isang tao .

Dagdag pa ng grupo na ang mercury ay kumokonekta sa nervous, immune, reproductive at respiratory system.

Ayon pa kay Lucero, ang 19 produkto na bahagi ng 25 produkto na kanilang sinuri ay nauna na para sa ikatlong Intergovernmental Negotiating Committee meeting para sa global mercury control treaty sa Nairobi, Kenya sa darating na Oktubre 31 hanggang Nobyembre 4.

Sa pagsusuri, lumalabas na 76 % (19 of 25) ng samples ay nagtataglay ng  mercury levels na umaabot mula  1,395 ppm to 52,100 ppm.

Ito ay ang mga sumusunod:
