Ghana has banned bleaching creams in the country. This was made public by the acting Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Food and Drugs Authority (FDA), Mrs. Mimi Darko on Wednesday while appearing before Parliament’s Public Accounts Committee (PAC).
Darko revealed that the ban commenced since last year as it also stopped registering body creams with bleaching agents.
Adom News reported that while answering questions posed by the Chairman of the PAC, Mr. James Avedzi, on what the FDA was doing about bleaching creams, Mrs. Darko said the FDA was currently engaging in sensitization programs to educate market women and other groups on the negative effects of bleaching.
