Beauty therapy treatments can affect people’s health if operators lack good hygiene processes and methods for different procedures. If basic hygiene processes and procedures are not followed, customers could be subjected to staphylococcus, fungi, viruses and even possibly Hepatitis. The Council is working with other agencies to find the best ways to educate and regulate these businesses and operators. We will keep you informed on progress.
