WANA (JULY 02) — The head of the Anti-Smuggling Department of the Food and Drug Organization stated that the smuggling of counterfeit cosmetic products from countries such as Dubai, Pakistan, and India has increased.


In Pakistan, unauthorized workshops produce a wide range of cosmetic and health products using foreign brands. This practice undermines the brands’ integrity and poses potential risks to consumers, he said.


He mentioned that the Ministry of Industry, Mine and Trade has prohibited the import of cosmetic products since 2018.
