Below are imported and handmade creams that CDPH has tested and found to contain more than the small amount of mercury that the government allows. Do not sell or use these creams. 

This page does not include all creams that may contain mercury. Skin-lightening products tested in other parts of the U.S. have also been found to contain mercury (see links below). Mercury is also present in some products that have not been tested.  Visit our Mercury in Skin Creams web page to find out how to buy safer creams and what to do if you use or sell the creams below.
