Health Canada is warning consumers that ingredients in a skin cream promoted as a natural treatment for children and babies may pose serious health risks, according to the CBC.
The federal regulator said its tests confirmed that PureCare Herbal Cream contains a prescription steroid called clobetasol propionate and another ingredient, phenoxylethanol, that are not declared on the label.
“These ingredients may cause health effects ranging from skin irritation and dehydration to increased blood pressure,” said Health Canada in a safety alert.
Health Canada said people should stop using the product and consult a doctor if they have used it and have health concerns.
Pharmacists call clobetasol propionate a powerful steroidal drug prescribed to treat skin conditions that have failed to improve after treatment with milder corticosteroids.
Topical corticosteroids can be absorbed in sufficient amounts to produce adverse effects, including irregular heartbeat, increased blood pressure, stomach ulcer, increased blood sugar, blood disorders, skin, muscle and bone damage, and nervous system disorders.
The agency says phenoxylethanol can cause difficulty breathing, vomiting and diarrhea if ingested.
Health Canada confirmed that PureCare Herbal Cream has stopped selling the product and PureCare said the recalled products can be returned for a refund.
