      Hi guys!

      I am in Australia and we had this warning a few months ago (about 6

      months now!) about the toothpaste but they also included the soaps

      and the shampoo’s that were ment for the asian countries they are not

      suited to our rules and regulations over here hence why you find

      them at the cheappy shop and not in the regular supermarket.
