Faiza Beauty Cream toxic, warns Dubai Municipality
Pakistani based whitening cream, Faiza Beauty Cream; a product of Poonia Brothers, has been making waves in the UAE, although not for the right reasons. The Dubai Municipality warned consumers on Wednesday not to use the beauty product since it "contains ingredients toxic and harmful for humans", like mercury.

The product has also not been registered in the database of producers according to the municipality.


The department of health and safety of the Dubai Municipality posted a disclaimer on Instagram stating that the cream contains hydroquinone, which is found in prescription drugs and is not safe for use.

The municipality also urged the public to report the product if seen in stores along with any advertisements regarding the product by calling on an 800900 helpline.
