Beauty Creams Containing Mercury Make Americans Sick
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of USA has issued a warning that skin-lightening creams and anti-aging solutions manufactured outside USA could contain mercury which is making users in America sick. This is truly a matter of concern if the products are made in Mexico and purchased online or brought into the country by tourists. Most of these products claim to remove age spots, freckles, blemishes and wrinkles. This works as it contains mercury which suppresses melanin, which is the pigment responsible for tanning. FDA has warned that consumers should check the ingredient lists of their skin products for mercury and also for mercurous chloride, calomel, mercuric or mercurio. These also indicate the presence of mercury.
