Huge quantity of fake beauty products seized

Abu Dhabi: Two tonnes of fake cosmetics and herbal products, which were found to be counterfeit, expired or hazardous to public health, were confiscated by Abu Dhabi Municipality last year.

Some products did not have proper labels or were written in a foreign language without being translated into Arabic or English. The products were seized during inspection campaigns last year which targeted hair-cutting salons, beauty parlours and outlets selling cosmetics.

A total of 1,489 judicial offences and 10,793 other offences were recorded by inspectors. The municipality also confiscated a number of laser devices and equipment used for activities such as tattooing, skin-peeling and tanning.

Shops shifted

A statement by the municipality noted that 1,008 commercial outlets were moved to Musaffah, in accordance with the decision to relocate businesses such as carpentry shops and auto repair and spare parts outlets to the outskirts of the capital.
