Israel’s health ministry has suspended sales of some anti-aging products after a new study showed they contained high levels of ingredients that can cause cancer.
The ministry said Wednesday that the products sold in the market include anti-inflammatory medication and skincaria, a skin-care product.
Some products were sold without a prescription.
Israel’s Health Ministry said it will review the products for the safety of consumers.
It said the new study was not connected to the ban.
A report by the Israeli Food Safety Authority (IFA) on January 31 found that several anti-inflammatories sold in Israel contain potentially carcinogenic ingredients.
Israel banned sales of the products in April after the IFA said that one product contained chemicals linked to breast cancer.
