Global Electrolysis Supply (WARNING!)


Global Electrolysis Supply

This disreputable company markets extensively on the web and through a mail-order catalog. Their slogan, "the most respected name in epilation cosmetology," couldn’t be much further from the truth.

Global Electrolysis Supply should be avoided by all consumers.

2002 update: Due to the high number of reports from angry customers, I have been getting lots of new information, including step-by-step accounts of how they will rip you off. I’ve expanded this section to over a dozen pages, including full text of their hard-to-find disclaimer. Just click on a link below for more information.

Various company names

To keep a step ahead of unhappy consumers and bad publicity, Global Electrolysis Supply has changed names many names in recent years:

Global Electrolysis Supply

Electrolyse Automatique International

Allied Distributors*
Allied Electrolysis Supply*
AAVEXX Electrolysis*

* no longer doing business under these names

Bogus "offices"

Despite the doctored photo of the Global Electrolysis Supply bogus "offices" on their company info page, the addresses they had listed are really just a series of phone numbers and postal drop boxes all over North America and Europe.
