The role of personal care products and cosmetics are very important in our daily lives. As per reports, consumers in UAE spend more on cosmetics and personal care than any other country in the Middle East. The use of personal care products is not gender specific. It’s associated with the lifestyle followed by individuals. The range of personal care includes products such as shower gel/ body wash, colognes, deodorant, eye liner, facial cleanser, hand soap, sanitizers, lipstick, lip balm, body lotion, moisturizer, pomade, perfumes, razors, sanitary pads, shampoo, shaving cream, soap products, sunscreen, toothpaste, wet wipes etc.
All these products come with an expiry date. Expired products are less effective and can even cause health issues like infections and irritation. Due to these reasons, we can’t use these items upon expiry.
