Young People from Stockholm Comment on Age Limits for Skin Care Products in Swedish Pharmacies

In response to growing concerns about young people using inappropriate skin care products, pharmacy chains in Sweden have implemented age limits for certain products. Despite these restrictions, Swedish youth have found ways to purchase these products. Dermatologists in Sweden are worried about the potential increase in chronic skin issues among young people due to the use of inappropriate skin care products.

In March 2020, Apoteket Hjärtat, a Swedish pharmacy chain, set an age limit of 15 years for some of their skin care products. This decision was made in light of the growing trend of young people spending more money on skin care products that may not be suitable for their age group. Another pharmacy chain, Apoteket, also followed suit by setting age limits for their products.

The popularity of skin care products among young people was evident when a cosmetics chain, Lyko, opened a new store and attracted a large number of teenage customers. While some young individuals believe that everyone should have the right to use skin care products, others think that age limits can prevent young people from using products that may harm their skin in the long run.

Experts interviewed by Swedish Television (SVT) expressed concerns about the potential effects of strong skin care products on young skin. These products often contain perfumes, preservatives, and other chemicals that can be harsh on young skin and lead to chronic skin issues. Apoteket Hjärtat specifically set age limits for products containing acids and enzymes that may be harmful to young skin.

Setting age limits on skin care products is seen as a way to prevent young people from using products that may not be suitable for their skin. However, it is also important to educate young individuals and their parents about the potential risks of using strong skin care products. While the beauty product market continues to grow rapidly, it is crucial for both retailers and consumers to be informed about the effects of these products on young skin.

One example of this is Mariel Yakob and Vilda Johansson who think that age limits can prevent young people from using harmful ingredients that could cause chronic health problems later on in life.

As dermatologists continue to raise awareness about the potential risks associated with strong skincare ingredients, it’s clear that age limits will play an important role in preventing long-term damage to youthful complexions.

Overall, while setting age limits on certain skincare product sales has been met with mixed reactions from both retailers and consumers alike; experts agree that education and informed purchasing decisions are key when it comes to protecting our youth’s health through safe skincare practices.
