The product contains nicotine (6 mg/ml) yet the packaging lacks a clear reference to the presence of nicotine. The product does not contain an adequate safety label bearing risk-related indications, safety advice or recommendations for correct and safe use of the product, such as is required for harmful mixtures. The user therefore does not have the necessary information on the dangers incurred when the product comes into contact with the skin or if it is ingested.

The product does not comply with the requirements of Directive 1999/45/EC relating to the classification, packaging and labelling of dangerous preparations.


Compulsory measures:Withdrawal of the product from the market.
