An Ideas Breakdown On Prudent Products
Research Psychologist and PHD student at UCT Meagan Jacobs is studying the influence of media on the aesthetics of skin lightening and other beauty practices in South Africa so as to inform policy and the regulation of the beauty industry. She shares her insights into the local market. What are some of the dangers for consumers associated with skin lightening products? Skin lightening products contains active ingredients such as mercury, hydroquinone and its derivatives; topical steroids and resorcinol which can, with chronic use, cause irreversible skin damage. Cosmetics containing these ingredients can cause itching, burning, darker skin patches, skin irritation and even skin cancer. Are any skin lightening formulations safe for consumers? Two aspects which can determine the safety of products: the concentration of active ingredients in the products and whether or not it was prescribed by a dermatologist. In the first instance the active ingredient as well as the concentration thereof should be clearly indicated on the labelling of the product. A good example is a product called Eurocin. In the second instance, the treatment for certain skin conditions are under the supervision of a dermatologist which prescribes the products and instructions of the usage. Due to the notion that skin lightening products are classified as cosmetics instead of pharmaceuticals, a lesser degree of control is executed therefore allowing the greater availability of products whether it is locally manufactured or imported What kind of policies do you think we need to develop in South Africa with regard to imported skin lightening products? The same policies applied to South African products should be applied to imported products. South Africa has the strictest policy in the world where it prohibits advertising of products to “bleach, whiten or lighten”. Instead products are marketed using synonyms such as “radiance”, “bright,” “light” and “clear”. In comparison with South African products, imported products are labelled as “skin brightening” “Skin lightening” and “skin whitening”. What are the most important messages that need to be communicates to SA consumers using, considering the use of skin lightening products? Consumers should make informed decisions when attempting to use skin lightening products. Firstly they should be aware that some products are not marketed as skin lightening product due to policy implementation and are mostly marketed as moisturizers, lotions and facial creams to “correct” skin problems such as dry skin, oily skin, remove blemishes and to create an even skin tone.
