In China, some skincare products contain toxic chemicals in amounts within regulated limits, according to the Beijing Consumer Association. Results of the study conducted by the group revealed some of the products contained antiseptics, arsenic, mercury, formaldehyde, and other toxic substances. Mercury is commonly found as an active ingredient in skin-whitening lotions and was found in samples of Sekkisei Supreme Revitalizing Cream I, Watsons Collagen Moisturizing and Whitening Facial Lotion, as well as in lip balms manufactured by Guerlain, Givenchy, and Shu Uemura.
