Cosmetic users have been urged to be cautious when purchasing cosmetics from retail outlets or online as some traders are selling counterfeit make-up products.
This after an investigation was made by the Consumer Council following a complaint by a consumer who claims the MAC products sold by the boutique could be counterfeit.
Council Chief Executive Premila Kumar says following seven months of investigations, they have established that the boutique was buying the product from Hong Kong not knowing that the products were counterfeit.
“I am just warning consumers that you know you not going to spend so much money buying a product which is not genuine and our concern mainly is related to the safety of Mac products. Some times when its fake products the chemicals used in creating the cosmetic can be harmful to consumers.”
