The Ministry of Health announces that Purelan-100 cream, manufactured in Germany by Medela, is being marketed without a license from the Ministry of Health, and does not comply with the Ministry’s guideline regarding the labeling of the product. ​

The policy of the Ministry of Health asserts that infants should be prevented from putting nipple cream in their mouths while breastfeeding.
Accordingly, the Ministry of Health already issued a guideline to cosmetic manufacturers and importers in 2010, requiring that the instruction: “Remove residual cream prior to breastfeeding” be added to the cosmetic’s label.
The Ministry of Health informs the public that Purelan 100 cream, manufactured in Germany by Medela, intended for the treatment of nursing mothers’ nipples, is being marketed without a license from the Ministry of Health.
The Ministry is undertaking enforcement and supervision actions to prevent the marketing of the product.
