I was thinking this to the other day.If Dermalogica are opposed to this, could they not take action like Environ has?
I hate the expression 'Business is Business' .... it is a horrible saying and it implies that anything goes in the name of making money and that is just not right.It all comes down to money Angie, some people/companies will do anything to make money out of other people/companies. It makes me sick.
I know business is business and all that, but whatever happened to trading ethically and treating others as you wish to be treated?
Including me for one.I hate the expression 'Business is Business' .... it is a horrible saying and it implies that anything goes in the name of making money and that is just not right. Me too, it's a shame that seems to apply all too frequently
Whatever way you look at it, 'do as you would be done by I say' and lets see a bit of honesty and integrity back in business instead of using everyone and everything to further yourself. It always comes with a price to have that mentality.
Some scoff and call the likes of me dinosaurs but we are not extinct and there are lots of people with ethics who deplore some of the practices going on PARTICULARLY in the beauty business which includes nails. No, we are not extinct and there are thousands and thousands who still appreciate that fact.
I'm not sure I agree with your last sentence. I can understand you thinking this way, but have a little faith in yourself .. clients will always tend to buy from you, if you have done their treatments, at their appointment time rather than run off to the nearest Boots. Our business is so much about building a client therapist relationship and your clients will prefer to buy from you I'm sure.I really dont know what to think. Boots has a zillion hair and skin ranges and should be happy with that, and get its grubby snout out of salon ranges. I am starting to think that there is little value in salons stocking skin and hair ranges if we can simply be elbowed aside by big retailers and online companies.
I think you might be correct with that statement as I was told direct from a Dermalogica employee that the biggest online retailer of Dermalogica (based in Jersey :wink2 is their top account holder and is a platinum salon. So they KNOW that this salon sells Dermalogica over the internet cheaper but choose not to stop it probably because of the £££££££'s they spend !!!Whilst I feel contempt for such a high profile and 'trusted' store as Boots to deal in unauthorised goods I have to say that I believe that Dermalogica could do more to stop this. For one they know what volumes are being ordered through various Distributors/account holders, they could also stop internet sales if they desired. I feel they have become a victim of their own success but maybe as the cash is rolling in they turn a blind eye. They could issue authorised outlets with special ID that could be checked by consumers to see if the product is authentic and make a big splash about it - so why do they not do it?
