NAD takes issue with University Medical

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

The National Advertising Division recommends University Medical Pharmaceuticals discontinue claims that compare the effects of its WrinkleFree Eyes to those of Botox, the Council of Better Business Bureaus division says Aug. 19. NAD says the firm should discontinue claims such as, "Clinically proven to reduce wrinkle appearance up to 85 percent in only 20 minutes" and "Truly effective topical alternative to Botox" because of a lack of evidence. NAD asks that the firm remove before-and-after photographs because the lighting, posing and cosmetic application are different in the first photo. The firm said the photos are not misleading. The Irvine, Calif., firm said it is disappointed with NAD's decision, but will consider the recommendations and modify its advertising accordingly
