Incident: Woman used cosmetic salon cosmetics to coma into ICU
The case stems from a mercury poisoning in a cosmetic salon.
In order to get acne, Ms. Wang from Xinghua City, Taizhou, Jiangsu, came to a local Chinese medicine beauty salon in November 2017 on the recommendation of her good sisters. The beauty salon strongly recommends a set of "Chinese medicine hall" beauty cosmetics, which not only contains acne water, acne cleansing cream, cleansing milk, but also has a whitening effect, water, whitening flawless rejuvenating cream, and beauty salon according to package Modified traditional Chinese medicine mask.
Ms. Wang insisted on doing beauty treatments every day. After half a month, the acne really improved a lot. At the suggestion of a beautician, she changed to beauty once every two days, and bought a set of "Chinese medicine hall" cosmetics for home use. After using it several times, her face became allergic, and then she became swollen. On February 4, 2018, Ms. Wang went to the Jiangsu Provincial Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine for examination, and was found to have kidney disease caused by mercury poisoning. During the period, she was admitted to the ICU for half a month. She then chose to call the police.
On March 3, 2018, the Taizhou Food and Drug Administration in conjunction with the Xinghua City Public Security Bureau inspected the beauty shop, seized relevant cosmetics and tested them. The results showed that the “Chinese Medicine Hall” series of cosmetics had a mercury content of 2193mg / kg—13448mg. / kg, the state explicitly added mercury to cosmetics must not exceed 1 mg / kg, this series of cosmetics mercury exceeds the standard more than 10,000 times.

Inside story of cosmetic fraud: Illegal additives are replaced with codes, and detection reports are mostly fake
What is incredible is that this expensive cosmetic product with far better publicity effect than first-tier international brands has no sales in malls and supermarkets, nor can it be sold through regular online channels. How did they enter the market?
The police found that Duan, born in 1987, has been engaged in the cosmetics sales industry after graduating from university. In January 2016, he registered Hong Kong Yilin Biotechnology Company in Hong Kong and actually operated cosmetics sales in Guangzhou. Half a year later, Duan Mou met the chemical engineer Li Mou, and the two co-funded and registered the Guangzhou Baobao Biotechnology Co., Ltd.
Gao Bao obtained a business license and a cosmetic production license in accordance with the law. Duan was well aware that adding mercury to cosmetics can increase the whitening effect, while Li was skilled at adding technology. After discussion, Li is responsible for R & D and production of semi-finished products, Duan is responsible for the packaging and sales of the product, and another person is responsible for the procurement of "Lifan" (that is, aminomercuric chloride), filling, packaging and delivery. The company also has administrative Department, operation department, sales department, design department, finance department, etc.
When the police finally touched the production den hidden in the waste factory area, they found that the walls were mottled, the smell was pungent, and the sanitation was simple. They could not think of this as the production place of the so-called high-end products.
The top of the group also kept the prohibited substances separately, and marked them with English codes or chemical formulas. There was no Chinese character on the ledger, all of them were codes. "For example, when they buy mercury, they replace it with A, and metronidazole is E. If you do not use a codebook, it is difficult for ordinary people to know the key core." The police said.
The gang has separate production and sales dens, and the responsible persons in both places are connected in a single line. All cosmetic packaging containing prohibited substances are printed by cancelled production companies.
The police extracted 50 cosmetic inspection reports from Guo's computer, who was in charge of the design department. After inspection, only 3 were authentic, and the remaining 47 were forged.
In addition to the downstream consumer Ms. Wang's diagnosis of "mercury poisoning", the police also found in a company's computer information and its internal WeChat group chat records that a large number of consumers used photos of adverse reactions on the skin of the back of their products, video.
The police also found gentamicin and saline on the scene. It turned out that this was to deal with the adverse reactions of customers using counterfeit cosmetics. The fake gang filled the gentamicin into delicate small cosmetic bottles, falsely saying " Fairy water. "
According to the local police, Duanmou ’s cosmetic products containing illegally added ingredients do not have a high level of technology. It is precisely because there are various illegally added substances that have a more effective use than brand-name products in shopping malls, but for consumers For example, the adverse consequences after use are irreparable. Illegal addition of substances has potential carcinogenicity and causes damage to human organs such as the kidney. Long-term use is extremely harmful to the human body.
(Picture said, the police investigated and dealt with harmful cosmetics with exquisite packaging, making it difficult for consumers to distinguish between genuine and fake.
Beauty salon industry chaos: monthly salary of 15,000 recruits young girls to be beauty salon instructors
Prosecutors point out that in recent years, large and small beauty shops and cosmetics shops have sprung up across the country. Ms. Wang's "Chinese medicine hall" cosmetics being sold in beauty salons are expensive, but they are rarely heard in the market. This is by no means an exception.
Prosecutors confirmed that from October 2016 to April 2018, the mysterious "Lifan" cream No. 1 and No. 3 were continuously produced in the workshop of an abandoned factory in an industrial zone in Dalang Town, Baiyun District, Guangzhou. Come out, and then fill it into exquisite small bottles and pack them for sale under different brands. As the whitening effect was quick, it was immediately sought after by customers and beauty salons, and the order volume rose sharply.
In 2018, Qibao Company has repeatedly released recruitment information for beauty mentors, with a salary of 8000-15,000 yuan. It is responsible for technical operations, explanations, training and professors, terminal store technical guidance, training and product sales.
Because this "three-nothing" cosmetics cannot be sold through regular channels, Duanmou positions its products in beauty salons. He hired a group of young girls, trained to become beauty instructors, and sent them to various provinces and cities to train and recommend products to agents and beauty salons. In addition, Duan Mou and Li Mou also sold No. 1 cream and No. 3 cream directly to multiple offline. After these offline filling and labeling and resale to the beauty salon, the "Chinese medicine hall" series of cosmetics that caused Ms. Wang's mercury poisoning were born, and the problem products were sold to nearly 20 provinces and cities such as Jiangsu and Liaoning.
On March 26, 2019, the court of Xinghua City made a first-instance judgment on the case, and sentenced Duan and Li to seven years in prison for the crime of producing and selling fake and inferior products, and fined 250,000 yuan; Yang and other persons who were sentenced to a lighter punishment were sentenced to probation and fined. Among the two defendants, Guangzhou Huangbao was fined 500,000 yuan and Chongqing Minghao was fined 250,000 yuan.
Duan Mou and Li Mou appealed against the judgment of the first instance. On July 12, the Taizhou Intermediate Court upheld the original judgment in the second instance.
The reporter checked the information of the enterprise and showed that the registration status of the company was still “employed”. On January 29, 2019, the company was listed as an abnormal operation list by the Baiyun Branch of the Guangzhou Municipal Administration for Industry and Commerce because “the registered residence or business place could not be contacted”.

The prosecutor also found that in the cosmetics sales industry, in addition to the more strictly regulated retail markets, mainly department stores, supermarkets, etc., there are also cosmetics that manufacturers directly sell products into beauty salons and provide after-sales services through agents through agents. Consumption "Mysterious Kingdom".
In the latter, a significant proportion of "three-none" cosmetics without approval number are accounted for. The so-called quality inspection report provided by the supplier is difficult to distinguish, and there is a clear lack of supervision. Xinghua City Procuratorate issued a procuratorial recommendation to the market supervision and management department on August 1, recommending that the management of the beauty industry be strengthened, the beauty market be rectified, and random inspections and other methods be used to inspect related products sold or used by beauty salons in a timely manner. Transfer case clues to public security organs.
The local police said that from the semi-finished product research and development to the finished product packaging, production, and then sales and use, the illegal subjects showed a tight chain connection; regional distributors are located all over the country, with a wide range of points and areas, and regional radiation is very extensive. Under the strong support of the Ali counterfeit special team technical assistance, the cooperation between police and enterprises destroyed the interest chain of manufacturing and selling fake and shoddy cosmetics .

In the past three years, Ali has used this set of technology to assist police in 227 districts and counties in 31 provinces across the country to arrest 4,439 suspects in manufacturing and selling fake goods and smash 4,289 manufacturing and selling fake dens. Alibaba's chief platform governance officer Zheng Junfang said that Ali will continue to spare no effort to assist law enforcement agencies and unite all forces to contain the source of counterfeit goods.
The State Drug Administration commended this case, saying that this is a typical cosmetic crime, combining serious illegal acts such as illegally adding banned substances and counterfeiting other people's brands. The successful investigation and punishment of this case has effectively combated the arrogance of criminals in using the Internet to produce and sell illegal cosmetics, and has demonstrated the determination and will of the drug regulatory authorities to actively act during the new round of institutional reform, investigate major cases, and resolutely safeguard public health and safety. , Will continue to increase the intensity of investigation and prosecution of cases, and always maintain a high-pressure situation of illegal acts of drugs, medical devices, cosmetics.
