- COUNTERFEIT EDUCATION
WHAT IS A COUNTERFEIT PRODUCT?
A counterfeit product is an illegal imitation of a name brand product. Counterfeit products may look like the brand name product but are made with inferior ingredients and are low quality. Counterfeit products are illegal to buy and sell because they infringe trademarks and copyrights and deceive consumers.
Our customers might encounter goods that look like authentic Mehron Makeup products but do not contain the same ingredients and do not work. Mehron Makeup’s proprietary ingredient blends are based on significant research, development, and testing.
Mehron Makeup takes pride in its lengthy research and development process. We ensure that all required safety tests are performed on our products by reputable cosmetics laboratories. Our authentic products are highly regulated and registered by national government institutions such as FDA and ICMAD.
Counterfeit products do not go through such a vigorous process because it is very costly. This is one of the reasons why counterfeit products are sold at a lower cost. Counterfeit products pose a health risk since lower grade and untested ingredients are used.
We strongly discourage anyone from purchasing counterfeit products.
WHAT DOES MEHRON MAKEUP DO TO ADDRESS COUNTERFEITING?
Mehron Makeup vigorously pursues counterfeiting operations and the individuals responsible for the production, distribution and sale of the counterfeit goods.
We work with local, regional, and federal law enforcement, as well as U.S. and foreign customs officials to prevent the illegal sale and distribution of counterfeit goods. We file civil legal actions and partner with the District Attorney’s offices on criminal actions.
We regularly take down known websites and online auctions which sell counterfeit products. But because of the prolific nature of counterfeit goods online, it is impossible to ensure no counterfeit goods are available online.
Mehron Makeup is not responsible for any claims arising from counterfeit products or from purchases of products from unauthorized resellers.
WHERE TO FIND OFFICIAL MEHRON MAKEUP PRODUCTS?
Mehron Makeup does not offer its products through individuals, street vendors, flea markets, internet auctions, most independent boutiques, or unauthorized online retailers. Mehron Makeup does not sell its products at wholesale over the internet.
