The products sold nationally in Red Dot stores did not comply with cosmetic trade practice for failing to reveal what ingredients are included, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission said.

"Users may be exposed to ingredients they are sensitive or allergic to," the watchdog said in statement released this week.

 

The kits were sold in August this year.
