A chemical is banned when it is found to be injurious, poisonous, or has serious adverse effects on man and the environment. A banned chemical means a chemical that all use has been prohibited by the final regulatory body, in order to protect human health and the environment.

It includes a chemical that has been refused approval for first-time use or has been withdrawn by industry, either from the domestic market or from further consideration in the domestic approval process, and where there is clear evidence that such action has been taken in order to protect human health or the environment.

In summary, they are chemicals for which all registered uses have been prohibited by the government. In addition, all requests for registrations or equivalent action for all uses have, for health or environmental reasons, not been granted.

Reasons for Banning Chemicals include:

1. Chemicals are banned in order to protect human health and the environment from potential harm.

2. Some chemicals are banned because they contain hazardous substances and reproductive toxins which are very harmful to the body.

3. Some chemicals are banned because they have the capacity of disrupting our skin’s ability to breathe and absorb moisture, resulting in premature ageing of the skin.

4. Chemicals are banned because when the different chemicals, from the multitude of products we use daily, interact with each other, the result can be very harmful.

5. When some of these banned chemicals come in contact with our skin, they can easily be absorbed by our capillaries after penetrating through our pores and then transported to our circulatory system.

6. Some chemicals are banned because they are not only harmful to individuals; they are also harmful to our planet as well.

7. Dual-use of chemicals, that is, chemicals with military applications, are subject to licensing or outright ban so as not to fall into wrong hands and being used for the manufacture of dangerous explosives.

8. The disruptive effects of chemical pollution on the ecosystem, and its significant economic consequences, are another reason why chemicals are banned.
