🚨 Did You Know 🚨

 

If you are importing products from overseas to use in your lash or brow salon you are actually deemed the manufacturer and considered liable for any issues that may occur while using these products? What that means is if one of your clients has something go wrong and sues and it is determined it was the product, the liability lays with you if you imported it. And if you don’t have the appropriate insurance cover (usually more expensive) then there’s a good chance your insurer will not cover you and you risk losing everything.
This is why we highly encourage you to support your country’s local distributors as they have the correct (hopefully!) licensing and insurance to be able to import and sell these products to you and if an issue is found with the product the onus will lay on them and their insurance, not you.
So please either upgrade your insurance today or look at supporting your local suppliers.
This is the case in Australia. If you are in a different country I highly recommend checking with your insurance.
