THE HEALTH PRODUCTS Regulatory Authority (HPRA) has warned people about the dangers of buying counterfeit make-up.

The organisation has identified harmful substances in a number of counterfeit cosmetics intended for the Irish market.

It has called for consumers to be vigilant of counterfeit high-end beauty products being offered for sale through certain outlets, markets and websites in the lead up to Christmas.

Tests carried out by the HPRA on a number of these counterfeit products found that some contained harmful substances such as arsenic and lead, which can potentially be harmful to people’s health.

Among the counterfeit products identified were fake versions of luxury make-up brands including MAC, Urban Decay and Benefit.

Over the past year, thousands of counterfeit cosmetics have been prevented from entering the country by Revenue’s Customs Service. However, quantities have also been found on the Irish market by the HSE’s Environmental Health Service, which works in tandem with the HPRA in conducting market surveillance on cosmetic products.
