Original post: Mercadona has withdrawn eleven cosmetic products from its own brand Deliplus range because they contain two components, Triethanolamine and Bronopol, which should not be included. Health Department Sanidad said that when combined, Triethanolamine and Bronopol can produce nitrosamine, a carcinogen, but stressed that the withdrawn products did not pose any risk for consumers because of the small quantities used in the Deliplus products. Legislation, however, required that they were withdrawn.
The products concerned have been redesigned to substitute the problematic ingredients. They include an olive-oil body cream and one for hands, aloe vera body moisturisers, almond foot cream, and various after-sun lotions. Manufacturing laboratory RNB has issued a press release “absolutely guaranteeing” that all products are safe.
