Hello

 

If anyone is interested the UK distributor of Acne.org products has just been told by Acne.org to stop re-selling Dan's products.

 

These products were available on ebay for reasonable prices but with the added benefit of 2 day delivery, instead of "God knows how long, at your own risk, delayed at customs delivery" of around 20 days.

 

If your interested in the cause there is a petition to get Acne.org to allow the UK seller to continue here;

The link to the UK seller is below - or can be found by searching for "Acne.org" on Ebay.co.uk.

Thanks

Not sure what your point is because you've not made one but if it's scepticism I assure the my post and it's cause is bona fide. Following the hyperlinks provided and the fact the mods haven't taken the post down is surely sufficient evidence (assuming the post will not be taken down). 

 

If you're from the UK and use Acne.org products perhaps you might consider supporting the petition.

Sorry, it was just that I dont see why would they do that, its not like he is making those products himself. Acne.org gets paid for their products, since I am from Europe I would rather order from someone who is in the UK as I dont have to pay extra VAT or wait a month for the delivery to arrive. It is one of the reasons why I use alternatives to Acne.org products. Bad business decision in my opinion and potentially losing out on revenue that European customers could bring them.

Yes Sir, that's exactly my point.

 

So far 39 Acne.org users have signed the petition. I wonder how many users need to sign it before Dan might allow the UK seller to continue.

That Ebay seller should get their facts right before using scare tactics to sell their stuff.

 

For their 6oz AHA & 8oz Treatment, they state that:-

 

"You are paying more here simply because customs charges have already been added on.

Remember you need to add another 20% plus handling fees on to acne.org's prices."
 

That's wrong! On 6oz AHA & 8oz treatment, you will not pay an extra 20% & handling fees.

 

Also:-

 

"orders from acne.org can take up to 6 weeks to arrive due to customs."

 

I obviously cannot speak for everone in the UK, but all my previous orders from Daniel Kern or from amazon.com have taken around 10 to 12 days to arrive. At current exchange rates, I would rather buy my 6oz AHA @ £18.17, & 8oz Treatment @ £19.75 from acne.org, rather than £26.50 each from that Ebay seller.
