“For export only” manufactured drugs and cosmetics that are not legally used in country of manufacture
Dr Adeline Osakwe, Nigeria
There are a variety of pharmaceutical products and cosmetics that are not registered in the country where they are manufactured. These products contain ingredients that are either banned or not considered fit for use in the country of manufacture. However, they are allowed to be manufactured for export. Regulatory bodies should ensure that products that are not fit to be used in their own countries should not be manufactured for export.
