NAFDAC alerts public on ban of ‘Dex Luxury bar soap’ by European Union  

The National Agency for Food and Drugs Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has issued a public notification regarding the ban on the sale of Dex Luxury Bar Soap (No 6 mystic flower) by the European Union (EU). 

The EU has prohibited the marketing of this product due to its non-compliance with the Cosmetic Products Regulation, as it reportedly contains Butyphenyl Methylpropional (BMHCA), a substance deemed harmful to the reproductive system.  

This ingredient poses risks to the health of unborn children and may also cause skin sensitization, prompting regulatory and public authorities in the EU to impose a ban on its marketing.
