MANILA, Philippines - The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued public advisories against 26 unregistered cosmetic products still being sold in Metro Manila and Region 2.

In two separate advisories, FDA advised the public not to purchase or use these products because they have “not passed through the verification process of FDA, thus, have no valid cosmetic product notifications.”
