Russians began to buy cosmetics 15% less often. Rospotrebnadzor in February held a “hot line” on the quality and safety of perfumery and cosmetic products. The Russians turned to her 5429 times. A year ago, there were a thousand fewer such appeals. This was reported in the press service of the department.

The specialized hotline of Rospotrebnadzor, which worked from February 6 to February 17, received 5429 calls. This is almost 1.5 thousand more than during a similar action last year, the ministry said.

“Consumers were interested in what mandatory information the labeling of perfumery and cosmetic products should contain, on which products it must be present, what information should be placed on cosmetics for children,” Rospotrebnadzor said.

The buyers also asked the department’s specialists to help draw up claims against the sellers: lawyers helped write 145 appeals.

From skincare to haircare, it doesn’t matter whether your routine consists of expensive bottles and various steps or simply includes one go-to moisturiser and shampoo, various cosmetic products contain phthalates.
