Additional information:
The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (“ACCC”) reports the following Face Cleansers are subject to this recall:

  • Gatsby Facial Wash Perfect Scrub Face Cleanser, sold in 130 gram white and blue plastic tubes with a barcode/UPC of 4902806353358

Please consult the photograph above for details of the recalled Face Cleansers’ packaging, design and retail presentation. An additional photograph of the recalled product can be found on the Web site above.

According to the ACCC, there are no ingredients listed on the recalled Face Cleansers in English. The products, therefore, are not compliant with the mandatory standard for ingredient labeling on cosmetics. Some consumers may expose themselves to cosmetic ingredients that they are sensitive or allergic to; should users suffer an adverse reaction, they are also unable to check the ingredients list to identify the possible causes and see appropriate treatment.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession the recalled Face Cleansers, please do not use them. Instead, kindly return the product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.
