Buying products online can be a TOXIC situation. A recent report (Jan 2018) by the U.S. Government Accountability Office (link here) states that ALL of the cosmetic products that they tested were counterfeit. One hundred percent or 13 out of 13 products bought off of consumer websites like Amazon and Walmart were not authentic.
And if that were not bad enough, according to testing by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the tested cosmetics had hazardous substances, including cyanide, arsenic, mercury, lead, urine, and rat droppings. Is it worth your health to get a tenner or a twenty off?
With the consumer push for fresher and organic skincare, buyer beware when buying your organic products off Amazon. How can you protect yourself? In short, don't buy from third party sellers. Only buy from legitimate distributors. Excerpting the report:
According to consumer protection organizations and government agencies, consumers can take the following steps to try to limit the risks of buying counterfeit goods online.
At Skinwise Rx, we carry authentic products. We promise no added urine, arsenic, lead, mercury, cyanide, or poop (of any kind). Support your local businesses and buy from those that promise to sell the true product. We are authentic distributors of Epionce and Obagi Medical Skincare.
