A Skegness man has been fined and ordered to undertake 100 hours unpaid work for selling unsafe counterfeit ‘Kylie Jenner’ makeup products.
Dale Clark, 40, was convicted at Boston Magistrates’ Court after he was found to have unsafe and non-compliant ‘Kylie Jenner’ make-up in his possession on two occasions.
Not only were the products incorrectly labelled, but when tested a number of them had higher levels of lead than is permitted.
Some of the products were four times over the guidance value.
He was convicted of offences under the Cosmetic Products Safety Regulations 2013.
American it girl Kylie Jenner launched her own brand of makeup in 2015.
The fake products were being sold on Eastgate Market, Ingoldmells near Skegness and did not meet the labelling requirement of the Cosmetic Products Safety Regulations 2013.
The offence was first discovered on April 28, 2017 and then again on July 27, 2017 during inspections conducted by officers from Lincolnshire Trading Standards.
The products lacked information such as manufacturer details and batch codes. This means that if there was a problem with the products they could not be traced back to the manufacture or the rest of their batch.
