The pandemic has increased the number of products and services being sought online, from places which are unregulated and whose products can cause lasting damage due to using more than 300 times the recommended amount of hydrogen peroxide.
In a recent episode of the BBC’s Fake Britain, there was an investigation into unregulated/illegal tooth whitening/home bleaching products and services. This is becoming more and more common – not just locally in Kingston, London or Surrey, but in the whole of the UK. The episode revealed Fake Britain’s investigation into illegal teeth whitening products being sold all over the UK, and the serious harm which these products cause. These fake teeth whitening products were sold in local markets, salons and shopping centres.
