The Body Shop Frauds Customers in India!
Or is it just India??
THE BODY SHOP SALE upto 50%
Yes, it is a sale! Sale of business ethics upto 100%.
I report this as an end-consumer of the THE BODY SHOP products.
Beware of buying THE BODY SHOP products in sale! New labels are put on expired products with wrong manufacturing and expiry dates. Bought a body butter yesterday from South City Mall, Kolkata, India and later saw two stickers. Noticed there was something fishy when the package said that the shelf life was 12M and the sticker told another story. It mentioned both the date of manufacturing and expiry ..3 YEARS apart!@#$%$ . Even another product with a single sticker had these wrong dates. Certain action must be taken against this company for such fraudulent practices. Share this with your friends and let them know!
All makeup and skincare products have this little symbol that tells you how long it will keep, with 3M, 6M, 12M, 18M etc. (M being months).
On more research I found that this is done on a regular basis in India. On most of the products where this 12M symbol is there, the dates are at a gap of almost 3 years. If this symbol has suddenly changed its meaning internationally…I am not aware.
