Bio Claire branded Lightening Body Cream without Hydroquinone, sold with a model designation of D244305 with Natural Bio-Végétal Activator and an EAN/barcode of 6181100231199

The type of hazards presented in these recalled Skin Whitener products is the presence of Clobetasol Propionate (measured concentration 0.01 % by weight). Clobetasol is a Corticosteroid that should be used/applied only if prescribed by a licensed physician. It is not for over the counter (“OTC”) usage because exposure to the active ingredient could cause skin irritation and may lead to reproductive and endocrine problems.

Due to these defects and their associated risks, these Bio Clare branded Skin Lightening products do not comply with the requirements of the European Commission’s Cosmetic Products Regulations.

Consequently, a recall of these products from individual end users as well as a withdrawal of the product from the overall European marketplace has been ordered.

==> Please do not use any of the recalled Bio Claire branded Lightening Body Cream products. Instead, please contact your retailer for a refund or exchange.
