Health Ministry removes sub-quality cosmetics products from markets

Nguyen Tat Dat, deputy chief of the Drug Administration of Vietnam, under the Ministry of Health yesterday said that the Administration sent its document to departments of health across the country, ordering them to remove 56 cosmetic products from store shelves.

The Administration also sent its document to Tan Dai Duong Commercial Im-Export Company in Binh Tan District, Ho Chi Minh City which makes the cosmetics products, asking the company to withdraw all 56 products with the name Mu Trom Sac Ngoc Khang and Mu Trom Tan Dai Duong (Mu Trom is oil of Trom tree with the scientific name sterculia foetida tree) in the market.

The cosmetics products were asked to withdraw from market because they can’t meet the requirement of ASEAN Cosmetic Good Manufacturing Practice.

Worse, the company had been fined for making fake cosmetics products before.
