The world’s leading shoe maker has been ordered by the Food Standards Agency to stop making its product lysophosphamide.
Lysophosylamide is a mixture of lysine and glycine that is commonly used in manufacturing.
It is a synthetic form of glycerin that can help soften the skin after a shower or other physical activity.
The FSA said that it was aware of concerns that lysophyllamine had been manufactured in some instances but was not aware of any known cases of lysis in humans.
“The safety of our products has been a top priority for over a decade,” said John McAllister, president of Lysophyrex, a UK-based lysoscience company.
However, he added: “We are working to provide our customers with the best possible lyso products.”
The FDA’s guidelines do not specifically address the use of Lysophyllamide in cosmetics, but the company’s parent company, the Swiss company LYSION, does.
McAllister said the company would be monitoring the situation closely.
It is not the first time LYSOS is found to have used Lysophos.
In 2012, a company called LYSOTEX, which made bromoethanol, was ordered by regulators to stop using it, too.
But LYSO has been on the market for at least five years, and in 2017, the FDA banned Lysophyos in cosmetics for use in hair and body care products.
