The products in question are for hair colouing, namely for “Dark hair”, “Black”, “Chocolate Brasil”, “Castanho Noz”, “Platinum blonde”, “Light Caramelo blonde”, “Sahara blonde”, “Loiro Dourado” and “Loiro Glam Shine”, specifies Infarmed.

The National Authority for Medicines and Health Products states that, within the scope of an inspection action, it found “the existence in the national market of Cien brand cosmetic products, whose distributor is the company Lidl & Cia, which contained in their composition the ingredient Butylphenyl methylpropional”.

Infarmed recalls that since March 1, cosmetic products that contain ‘butylphenyl methylpropional or zinc pyrithione’, substances classified as carcinogenic, mutagenic or toxic for reproduction, cannot be marketed or made available to consumers.

In the circular, the medicine authority warns entities that have these products that they cannot make them available and appeals to consumers not to use these products.
