According to Infarmed – Autoridade Nacional do Medicamentos e Produtos de Saúde, the organization “in the scope of a market inspection action, verified the existence in the national market of cosmetic products distributed by the company L'Oréal Portugal, Unipersonal Ltd. which contained in their composition the ingredient Butylphenyl methylpropional”.

“Although L’Oréal Portugal, Unipessoal, Lda. informed INFARMED, I.P. of the measures for the recall and withdrawal from the national market of cosmetic products that contained the ingredient Butylphenyl methylpropional in their composition, from the analysis of the information made available to date, it appears that the said company has not been able to demonstrate the recall in the entire national market of non-compliant cosmetic products”, advances the circular.

Infarmed also asks traders who still have products with this ingredient to contact the brand and underlines that “consumers who still have these products should not use them”.
