The Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) has indicated that it will ban cosmetic products containing skin bleaching ingredient, hydroquinone.

 

According to the FDA, the ban, which takes effect from August 2016, is in accordance with a directive from the Ghana Standard Authority (GSA).

“Currently the FDA allows two percent of hydroquinone in skin bleaching products but from 2016, all skin lightening products are supposed to be hydroquinone-free – that means zero percent – and this is going to be enforced,” Head of Communication at the FDA, James Lartey disclosed this at a public forum in the Volta Regional capital, Ho.
