Are You Using Diverted Products

The other day a client called to ask why the product she just purchased from me was much cheaper online.  I explained to her about diverted product sold in “unauthorized places” and she did not know about this at all.  Since it is a big problem for people like me and big companies, let me explain.  When products are much lower in cost than at reputable places, they are known as diverted products.  Buyer Beware

These products can be counterfeit, diluted and /or altered formulas, old or expired products that may not be safe to use.  There could be completely different ingredients in the product than on the label.  In fact there was an expose on a TV news program about Mac products that were sold in a shop in New York City.  They had the products tested and found that they were not Mac’s ingredients and had aluminum and barium and other toxic ingredients in them.  The packaging was Mac’s packaging.  No difference at all.  So people thought they were getting a Mac product at a great cheap price.  That’s your red flag right there.

You could be harming your body by using these products, as they can not only be ineffective but dangerous too, resulting in irritation, infection, rashes, blisters, swelling, or even worse.
Diverted products may have been gathered from multiple places (a company’s dumpster for example) or stolen before being sold.  They then put them on Amazon or Ebay for sale. The warehouses where they store them can be hot and humid or extremely cold, helping the product to lose its effectiveness and be a breeding ground for bacteria.  Companies like Target, Walmart and drugstores have been known to sell diverted products also.  Pevonia products are exclusively available through licensed and authorized industry professionals and Not available through mass market retailers.
Diverted product hurts me, an independent business, the professional manufacturer and you, too, the consumer who trusts a professional brand to deliver the highest quality ingredients and results.  When purchasing a diverted product , you are contributing to a major problem that affects you, the consumer, and the entire skincare industry.  If you decide to still buy from an unauthorized seller, think of your health and safety.  Would you purchase a medication online that is discounted to save a few dollars?  Your skin is the largest organ of your body and protects you and your insides.  Do you want to endanger its health with diverted products?  Buy safe from an authorized seller.

I’d be happy to answer any questions you have about this.  This is not only a problem for the skin care industry but many others also.
