In Turkmenistan, raids were carried out to seize lipstick and mascara from stores
In the shops of Turkmenistan, raids took place, during which the owners of outlets were required to withdraw decorative cosmetics from sale: lipstick, nail polish and mascara. The relevant information is published by the portal “Chronicles of Turkmenistan“.
It is reported that beauty products that could harm the “health and appearance” of consumers were forced to remove from the shelves. Interviewed sellers and buyers said that the inspectors do not have clear instructions on which products the authorities decided to restrict the implementation of. Shampoos, shower gels and creams are allowed to be sold.
In addition, it became known that in April the Turkmen authorities began holding meetings with students and schoolgirls, as well as with employees of budgetary and state institutions, at which they talked about the need to observe national traditions. In addition, at the meetings mentioned, the inadmissibility of hair coloring, permanent makeup, eyelash and nail extensions, lip augmentation procedures and, in general, the application of makeup was discussed.
In April, the Turkmen authorities wanted to ban beauty injections, eyelash extensions and a number of other cosmetic procedures. Then it was reported that law enforcement officials plan to impose fines of 300-500 Turkmen manats (about 7-11 thousand rubles) for Botox injections, contouring, eyelash extensions and the use of false nails. In addition, women can be detained for “using foreign objects on their bodies.”
