eBay Stiffens Botox Advert Laws
eBay has agreed to toughen up laws against illegal Botox
advertisements on it's website. There was nearly 300 illegal advertising of the product in just under a week of screening the site. Reports say that many of the unlawful advertisements were done by 16 companies, most of which were unaware of the legality issues surrounding their ads.
"Adverts offered discount vouchers for Botox treatments and encouraged people with 'introduce-a-friend' offers. Others included celebrity photos and made claims such as 'restores the look of youth and vitality'."
The Advertising Standards Authority made the news about these illegal ads. They were worried because the ads did not display the any correct information about Botox, it's side effects, types of treatment and consultations with a professional.
