Facebook pages promoting a cosmetic serum falsely claim it was endorsed by a well-known Filipino doctor. But the posts led to imposter websites that mimicked the online store for the doctor's clinic chain, and the doctor herself has issued warnings against using it since 2021. AFP found no evidence that the product -- which has not been registered with the Philippines' drug regulator -- has been proven to help heal scars or treat other skin conditions.
