NAFDAC bans sale of Dex Luxury soap in Nigeria


The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration Control, NAFDAC, on Thursday announced a ban on the sale of Dex Luxury bar soap in Nigeria.


The agency explained that the ban was due to Butyphenyl Methylpropional, BMHCA, content in the product.


This was contained in a post on the Agency’s X handle on Thursday, April 11.


According to the post, the European Union, EU, banned the product due to the risk of harming the reproductive system of users, causing harm to the health of the unborn child, and cause skin sensitization.


“Although this product is not on the NAFDAC database, importers, distributors, retailers, and consumers are advised to exercise caution and vigilance within the supply chain to avoid the importation, distribution, sale, and use of the above-mentioned product”, the agency added.
