Beware of Counterfeit Silk’n Products

A growing problem that all consumers should be concerned about is counterfeit products. The internet has become a major shopping center for consumers. Following this growth, the sell of counterfeit products has skyrocketed. In 2012, online counterfeit sales overtook street sales. Many large companies like Alibaba, Amazon, and Ebay have had major problems with counterfeit products in the last few years. In fact, last year Alibaba took down 90 million fake product listings. These statistics show how important it is do to research when making online purchases. It has recently been discovered that there are counterfeit versions of the Silk’n devices. In other words, there are devices that look exactly like those sold on, but do not have the same technology, and are not approved by the FDA. Authentic Silk’n devices have undergone rigorous testing to ensure they are safe for personal use, which is why they have received FDA clearance. The counterfeit versions of the devices have undergone no such tests, and therefore could be a serious danger to any user. Not only could these products cause physical harm, they can also do some damage to your wallet.

The vast majority of the time, sellers of counterfeit products do not offer any kind of warranty on the products they sell. If they do offer a warranty, chances are that they will not follow through with it. This puts purchasers in a bad position, with money wasted on a counterfeit product that does not work. Unfortunately, Silk’n is unable to offer any type of warranty or refund on counterfeit products. This is why it is extremely important to do research when making an online purchase, especially with higher priced items. If you have found a Silk’n device selling for a price that seems too good to be true, chances are, it is. We highly recommend purchasing only from authorized retailers.

We recommend always shopping around to compare prices. If you find a device that is drastically less expensive than the majority of others, chances are it is a fake product. Make sure you read reviews. If you notice one or more purchasers mention that they received a counterfeit device, stay away from that seller. Lastly, it is always your safest bet to order straight from the source. Purchasing your devices on will ensure you get an authentic device, as well as a FREE shipping. If you purchased a product that you suspect is counterfeit, please contact our customer support team.
