The recent spate of fake Ben Nye powders in the market has brought about concerns circulating around counterfeit products. To counter the counterfeit products, Ben Nye has changed the packaging of its powders.
Fake cosmetic products typically contain toxic and banned ingredients such as arsenic, which are extremely harmful and may cause long-term impairment. A report from UK’s Daily Mail mentioned that cheaper imitations may appear “legitimate” and please the purse, but they are found to contain ingredients that best irritate the skin. In worst cases, these products may bring permanent damage to the body and brain.
