HA NOI (VNS) — Thousands of boxes of cosmetic products of unknown origin were found at Ha Noi-based Bach Phuong International Trade Company Ltd last Saturday.

The company's owner, Doan Thi Dung, was unable to provide the police with certificates of origin for the ingredients used in her company's cosmetics.

Further investigation revealed thousands of cosmetic products branded Ecolly. Dung admitted buying the ingredients at border markets in Lang Son, Mong Cai including cosmetic bottles and boxes.

She invented the Ecolly brand and sold it as a foreign-brand of cosmetics made with technology from France to beauty centres in Ha Noi for US$70 a set. The company was found to be making cosmetic products during a routine inspection by the Ha Noi Police's Department of Environment Crime Prevention Police.

Police have confiscated the stock and are holding further investigations. — VNS
