Why is Borax so Difficult to Purchase?
Borax is a controlled substance in Malaysia and requires an issuance of Poison License by the government. This is because Borax is used in many illegal applications. Under inexperienced hands, this chemical substance may be hazardous to the user. All purchases of Borax from this website can only be used to make detergents and must not be resold. Reselling of Borax requires a license under the Pharmaceutical Services Divisions, Ministry of Health Malaysia.
