BPOM Revokes License of 12 Traditional Drugs, Cosmetics

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta – The National Food and Drug Monitoring Agency (BPOM) revoked the distribution permit for 12 traditional medicinal products, health supplements, and cosmetics that did not meet safety and quality requirements. This was done in an effort to protect the public from harmful substances.

“BPOM found eight traditional medicinal products and health supplements that did not meet safety and quality requirements,” the agency said in a press statement as quoted from its official website, Tuesday, August 1, 2023.

The traditional drug products and health supplements contain prohibited ingredients or contaminants exceeding safe limits, while the four cosmetic products contain prohibited and hazardous materials.

Consuming those products may cause health problems, including digestive system disorders, impaired liver and kidney function, and hormonal disorders.
