Most skin care products contain mercury because it clears dark spots fast and also lightens the skin tone in a short period of time.
It isn't expensive which is why it is put in most skincare products.

Long term use of a product that contains mercury might cause scars, discoloured skin, rashes, permanent bleaching etc.
