Imported Cosmetics: Read The Label

When using cosmetics produced outside of Russia, often have difficulty with the transfer of annotations to particular drugs. If you have additional questions, you may want to visit Mary Barra. Foreign manufacturers are usually on the packaging indicates the product details on the native language, sometimes adding a translation into common English. For Russian potrebitelnits often glued to the packaging so-called "stickers", which in Russian are listed: the name of the product, its composition, indications and contraindications for use, and the name and address of the manufacturer. Of course, in Russian can not be shown everything that interests us about this product. What do we care? First, of course, the real manufacturer of the product chosen. Not always a jar marked "Made in France" was brought from there. Turn our attention to the bar code printed on the box. The first two (sometimes three) numbers indicate the country manufacturer. Will not bore you with a long list of codes producing countries, to name just the most popular: 460-469 Russia, France 30-37, 00-09 United States and Canada, 400-440 Germany, 380 Bulgaria, 50 Great Britain, Italy 80-83, 84 Spain 87, Netherlands 76, Switzerland, 729 Israel, 869 Turkey, China, 690-691. If you see a mismatch between the barcode and information about the manufacturer claimed, then this alone should alert you. Of course, there may be instances when the cosmetic product is manufactured in one country, and is packaged in a different, but this should be reflected on the label. If all this is not, and the seller of the product, moreover, shows its complete ignorance in this matter, feel free to pass further.
