Secret of the Islands Salt Scrub Causes Structural Damage Columbia South Carolina
Secret of the Islands is a Salt Scrub Company which advertises that it's product is "all Natural". It's Not! This oil in the Scrub is the heavest cheapest Soy Bean Oil which can be found at the time of Bulk Purchase. (Coconut oil is the best Oil to be used on your Skin.)
The "Secret" in Their scrub is that the ingrediants used are not "Natural" which is Advertised. The scents are Not all Natural as they are a Chemical Blend.
The "shelf life" on the Jar's of sold product is about 90 day's. This means the jars which are purchased could be near their spoiling experation. There is not a manufatoring date on the jars so it is impossible to buy the freshest scrub. Once the scrub spoils, it smells like "Cooking Oil" and gets sticky. Again it is Soy Bean Oil.
When you wash your Hands with the scrub, you have a greasy residue left on you. It is so bad that Normal soap is needed to remove the greasy oil. The grease coats your sinks and showers and tubs. In some cases the grease will stain your bathroom facilities. Slippery means liability!. The product also is known to clog Drains. The Company knows this and offers to pour drain cleaner down your drains. It does not work and in some cases corrosion and replacement is needed. This Company will fight you on who is responsible for this cost.
Secret of the Islands has a History of firing their employees who work the hardest. You see, the harder a sales representative works, the more commission this employee makes. This Company lets these employees go, after a territory is "built up". The Company no longer has to pay commissions to that employee and the company pockets this money. Secret of the Islands claims the individual employee is Falseifying paperwork or stealing from the company and then fires that employee. This Same activity has occured to every employee which has done well and this is documented. The Company always claims to be the victim.
The owner of this company is a convicted Felon for Bank Fraud. All these records are open to the Public, just google Johnny Hoy in South Carolina. When the Employee is fired, the Company refuses to pay them their last commissions and expenses. Basically, Secret of the Islands Uses their Employees, fires them, and the Steals from them.
Secret of the Islands has many Lawsuits filed against former employees and former Business' which once carried their product. If a Business who carries Secret of the Islands Product line, decides to drop the scrub and move in another direction, Secret sues this Company for breach of Contract.
Look elsewhere Folks. Secret of the Islands is a Nightmare. It wrecks drains and property. It is a Liability because of it's greasy slippery residue. It treats employees and it's own clients horrible.
Secret of the Island Salt Scrub is Drama. Run away
