NAFDAC Bans Sale of Dex Luxury Bar Soap

The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration Control has banned the sale of Dex Luxury bar soap due to the presence of Butyphenyl Methylpropional.

According to a statement posted on NAFDAC’s official channels on Thursday, the product, Dex Luxury Bar Soap (No 6 Mystic Flower), manufactured in Turkey, contains BMHCA, a substance prohibited in cosmetic products due to its potential harm to the reproductive system and skin sensitization.

The post reads: “Public Alert No. 012/2024.Ban on the sale of Dex Luxury Bar Soap due to Butyphenyl Methylpropional (BMHCA) content.

“NAFDAC is notifying the public of the ban on the sale of Dex Luxury Bar Soap (No 6 mystic flower) by the European Union (EU).

“The product does not comply with the Cosmetic Products Regulation as it is said to contain Butyphenyl Methylpropional (BMHCA) which is prohibited in cosmetic products due to its risk of harming the reproductive system, causing harm to the health of the unborn child, and may cause skin sensitization.

“As a result, a ban on the marketing of the product has been placed by some regulatory and public authorities in the EU.

“Product Name: Dex Luxury Bar Soap (No 6 Mystic Flower), Product Brand: DEX, Country of Manufacture: Turkey, Model: 11.11.22, Barcode: 8694965531, Category: Cosmetics.
