hair-free-skin.com

This disreputable company markets extensively on the web and through a mail-order catalog under the name Global Electrolysis Supply. 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. I’ve expanded this section to over a dozen pages. 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
Allied Distributors*
Allied Electrolysis Supply*
AAVEXX Electrolysis*

* no longer doing business under these names

Bogus "offices"
