Gist :- Ghanaian Government Bans Bleaching Creams

Ghana’s Food and Drugs Authority has
disclosed that bleaching creams have been
banned from entering the country, since
January this year. This was revealed when
Agency’s Chief Executive Officer appeared
before the Public Accounts Committee of
Parliament on Wednesday, to assist in
queries leveled against them by the Auditor
General on Public Accounts of Ghana for
the year 2015.

Speaking at the sitting of the Committee,
Chief Executive Officer of FDA Delese Mimi
Darko stated that the bleaching agent in
creams, hydroquinone, has been banned
from imported cream products. She told the
Committee that FDA has taken that
standard and implementing it fully.

She confirmed that since January, 2017, no
product is registered with hydroquinone in
it. Ms Darko noted that FDA has had
meetings with all the importers of creams
and has told them what the new standard
is and the fact that it is already in force.

The head of FDA stressed that they have
also met with cosmetic sellers in markets
about the decision and that the FDA is
working with all stakeholders to ensure
that these products are not sold to the
public.

Ghanavibes reported that the deadline to
the sellers to clear any products with the
agent in them was last year. However, the
Chairman of the Committee, James Klutse
Avedzi, was worried about the damage
being caused by the products in the

system. Ms Darko, further assured the
Committee that FDA is in control regulating
what is on the market. She also maintained
that the Authority is no more allowing such
products into the country. As per the new
policy, Ghana will in the near future be a
bleaching-free society, she assured.
