Some say imitation is the highest form of flattery but for customers it's an obstacle when trying to purchase the real thing.
Canadian Cosmetic is a company who provides it's customers with the most effective lash serums proven to grow long lashes and healthy brows.
Careprost became a popular substitute for Latisse because it contains the same active ingredient at a much more affordable price.
We receive emails from customers regarding their experience in purchasing fake Careprost and thought we'd share it to assist customers in avoiding the same issues.
Where is Fake Careprost Coming From?
China - avoid any sellers from China and those shipping from China.
India - Genuine Careprost is manufactured by Sunpharma who's located in India so counterfeit Careprost is readily available from India website's ("Mart"), online 'pharmacies', and many advertising on social media. *Note* Latisse & Lumigan are also both manufactured in India where Allergan has it's facilities as well. Genuine Careprost is NOT reboxed in the U.S. or Canada like Latisse so no genuine Careprost makes the claim on the box " Manufactured in the U.S or Canada".
Canada, U.S. and Europe - Watch out for individuals adding 'stickers' to the boxes of Careprost, Careprost repackaged under other names and individuals adverting on Social Media. Although individuals may have good intentions in making stickers for Careprost this prevents purchasers from reading all the information provided on the box and may indicate they are covering counterfeit/ expired Careprost.
What are some obvious sign of Individuals selling Counterfeit Careprost ?
*Very Important - Accepts Credit Cards - We understand many customer like the ease of purchasing online using their credit card, but Mastercard, Visa and AMX do no accept payment for Careprost.Please note : Since PayPal allows customers to use Credit Card for payments PayPal does not accept payment either. Individuals/Websites accepting Credit Card / PayPal are doing so against their merchant agreement and will be shut down.
* Amazon,E-bay, IOffer, Etsy, News Paper Ads, "Marts", Pharmacy's & Individuals on social medial and free email accounts are all a heads up to be very cautious.
* Offering Sales or seriously discounted prices on product or shipping. Genuine Careprost distributors have an MRSP and do not violate the terms of their agreement by offering sales and discounts on Careprost. We always keep our Careprost at the lowest allowable price here in Canada and note often prices lowered by just a dollar or two by fraudulent sellers.
* Selling prescription skin care ointments, skin products like Shea Butter (from India / China) Make Up Tools from China / India. Make up from China / India.
* The quality of the box, lid of the product or label is evidently lower quality then the genuine product. The Box is sealed or has a sticker or new label on it. Please note: Genuine Careprost does NOT have a sticker with printing in "French" and the claim that "licensed" suppliers are selling with this sticker is false.
Note: More customers are reporting the box can thicker then the original.
