Additional information:

Among the 31 recalls the European Union has announced in its fifth (and final) report of November 2018, the following recall notification was made:

Zakuro branded Black Soap Recall [EU]Zakuro branded Black Soap, sold with an unknown item number, a batch/lot designation of 0352309-0172 and a barcode/EAN of 8993379255534

The type of hazard presented in these recalled Soap products include skin irritation, allergic reaction and Cancer hazards.

Specifically, the recalled Soap products contain too much Triclocarban, used as a preservative, (measured value: 1.3% in weight) and 4-Chloroaniline (measured value: 0.2% in weight). Aromatic amines can cause Cancer and/or allergic reactions. As a consequence, these ingredients can cause serious injury and/or life-changing skin damage.

These Soap products, therefore, do not comply with the requirements of Europe’s Cosmetics Products Regulation in that they pose serious health and/or safety hazards to those who use them. Consequently, they have been ordered withdrawn from the European marketplace.

==> Please do not use any of the recalled Soap products. Instead, please return the Soap to the store or online outlet from which you purchased them for a full refund.
