MERCURY IN SKIN CARE PRODUCTS

As a Fort Myers plastic surgeon, I am an avid reader of the FDA alerts.

The FDA recently published a warning about mercury contained in certain skin care products ie. lotions, soaps, and/or cream. They have been marketed as anti-aging treatments.

The products are manufactured abroad and have been imported illegally.

Exposure to mercury can have serious health consequences. It targets kidneys and the nervous system.

My suggestion would be to go to the website at http://www.fda.gov/ Once there, look for updates.
