Only Accept Authentic UK products!!
Do not settle for Parallel imported products – Here is Why …
Be on the lookout for the Authentic UK Seal on those products available from the United Kingdom
When you order a product from our contracted and licensed pharmacy in the United Kingdom, you can be sure you will be getting authentic government approved UK product (namely, the UK Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency) and not a product from elsewhere in Europe. Some other pharmacies will claim that their products come from the United Kingdom, when in actual fact those products are parallel imported products (so it may come from elsewhere in Europe).
With parallel imported products, you have no idea where it may be coming from (Portugal, Spain, Germany, etc.) and with such a model, there is more opportunity for counterfeit drugs to enter the drug distribution network. Such parallel imports may also arrive with instructions in a foreign language.
So rest assured, knowing that the products we offer are not parallel imported products, but true authentic products sourced from the United Kingdom and approved by the UK Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency.
