The Health Ministry’s Tel Aviv District Health Office issued an order this week to close down a cosmetics manufacturing company at 6 Rehov Ben-Shemen in the city. Owned by Daniel Moyal, the company is named Dandy Cosmetics and Dandy M&M Ltd. and lacks a license.
The ministry found that its hair-straightening products contain dangerous formaldehyde, which became illegal at the beginning of this year.
The entire stock of products was seized by inspectors. Toxins used at the factory were not handled with protective equipment as required.
Only products with a Health Ministry license should be used, a spokesman said.
