ODM cosmetic maker Hwasung Cosmetic was found guilty of producing products of several cosmetic brands with antimony above the permissible level of 10 micrograms per gram as set by Korean regulators. Antimony is a heavy metal substance that can cause conditions like eye irritation and gastrointestinal disorder.

The ministry has suspended the sales of the 13 cosmetics products sold at eight companies and ordered a recall on March 19.

The companies involved include Aritaum, Etude House, Makeheal, XTM Style Homme, Black Monster, SKEDA, Skinfood and 3CE, Oriental Daily reported. Surely you’ll recognise some of the names listed above.

AmorePacific Corporation, South Korea’s beauty giant and home to brands such as Etude House, Aritaum, innisfree and Laniege has released a statement regarding the incident.
