The government of Punjab has decided to take strict action against those who are either manufacturing or selling fake and counterfeit products in cosmetics which are harmful to the human skin. The fake products could lead to causing skin cancer over time.
The mafia involved in manufacturing and selling substandard and counterfeit cosmetics remained unaccountable in the past and no action was taken by the concerned authorities in this regard, he added.
He also said while talking to media that approval of this amended bill will ensure the manufacturing of international standard cosmetics free from harmful chemicals that cause cancer, skin allergies, and different skin diseases. The Chief Minister of Punjab said that no shop offline or online will be allowed to sell counterfeit and substandard cosmetic products after approval of this bill.
