THE Saint Lucia Bureau of Standards has withdrawn from sale a hair dye, Couleur de Star, which it said did not comply with the compulsory standard for the labelling of pre-packaged goods.
“The product is labelled in a language other than English and therefore is non compliant. In addition the product poses the likely risk of skin irritations or burns”, the SLBS said adding:
“The hair dye which was withdrawn from sale is the brand: Color de Pelo Professional with the product name: Couleur de Star. The hair dye is in a multicoloured box with the picture of a blonde Caucasian woman on it.
The Bureau said the product was identified during one of its routine market surveillance activities.
It advised consumers to discontinue use of the product if purchased.
