A very short piece from Dubai: Mercury found in cosmetics:
Dubai inspectors have discovered high rates of mercury in skin-whitening and freckle creams that carry a ‘made in the US’ label, reports Emirates Today. The emirate began lab testing cosmetics two years ago because many general trading companies were selling the items. Officials are conducting an extensive search to confiscate the contaminated products.
Strangely, the article does not mention which products were found to have mercury in them. If there is a follow-up article, we will be sure to post it.
