You generally use beauty products to make your skin flawless and beautiful. But due to fake makeup and other cosmetic products, people are suffering from wrinkles, blemishes, acne and other skin allergies. There is a rampant supply of fake cosmetic products in different market locations across Delhi-NCR. This is generally due to extra profit margins on the sale of fake products.
In a joint operation against counterfeit cosmetic products in Delhi’s famous ‘Sadar Bazaar’ police recovered huge quantities of counterfeit Hindustan Unilever and Nivea products. The authorities confirmed that fake cosmetic products are supplied across Delhi NCR through counterfeit hubs like Sadar Bazaar.
Nupur Prasad DCP (North) has assured that strict action will be taken against people dealing in fake cosmetic products. She said that a case under the copyright act has been booked against the alleged offenders. A few months back the police had also seized fake products of other companies.
In a recent operation against counterfeiters, the police arrested three sellers after a complaint by a renowned company. The authorities recovered 5600 pieces of fake Nivea and Lakme products from them. On further investigation, it was revealed that there is a long chain of vendors and suppliers involved in the trade of fake cosmetic products.
