SFDA Ban on Mouthwash containing Alcohol

The Saudi Food and Drug Authority (SFDA) have issued circular no. 3597 dated 2.2.1432 (or 16th January 2011) banning the import into Saudi Arabia of all mouthwash and related products (used for rinsing, cleaning or sterilizing of the mouth and teeth) containing alcohol. The reason for this ban is because of the existence of permissible and alcohol free alternatives.
