Which one is the fake?

#Chinese +BL #cream is a popular topical medication not only recognized for its anti-itch relief but also for its skin whitening effect. While, this product can be bought in ordinary stores, groceries and selected pharmacies, Chinese BL (with the Chinese characters) is not approved by the Philippine Food and Drug Authority (FDA).

Contrary to this, there are still individuals who find Chinese BL beneficial. Some are even comparing and questioning Chinese BL cream's authenticity against +LS BL cream - its Philippine counterpart.

So, which one's really genuine?

At least in the Philippine's legal perspective, LS BL with the FDA registration number DR-XY40446 and as imported by Manxing Enterprise Corporation, LS BL is probably more reliable than Chinese BL. However, like other medicines, these two can also be faked. The best thing to do is to buy these products in a trusted and registered source.

The second photo, the LS BL cream may seem authentic. It may have the correct name of the importer and the serial number, but considering the wrong spelling of its generic name 'clobetasole propionrte' instead of 'clobetasole propionate', it is clear that this LS BL cream is a counterfeit drug.

Chinese BL or LS BL cream as a skin lightening and anti-scar cream?

These two topical medications are both composed of clobetasole and ketoconazole. Logically speaking, Chinese BL and LS BL cream are both intended for fungal infection and not as a beauty product.
