Skin Facts! PSA


  • Skin Facts!
    Skin Facts! What you need to know about skin lightening products is FDA OMHHEs newest initiative to alert consumers about the dangers of using skin products that contain hydroquinone or mercury....

  • The FDA’s Skin Facts! Initiative alerts consumers of potentially harmful over-the-counter (OTC) skin products containing hydroquinone or mercury. These products are sometimes called skin lightening products and are not FDA approved for over-the-counter sale.

    OMHHE created the Skin Facts! Initiative, which includes educational materials and other communications, to help consumers understand the potential risks of using these products and to help identify whether the skin products they purchase contain these harmful ingredients.

    Watch our Skin Facts! videos in multiple languages on the FDA YouTube Channel.
