Okay this is just my opinion but I have to give it. All I see lately on some message boards is about diversion. All anyone can talk about lately is diversion like it is a new terrible thing. When I got into this industry 3 years ago I carried Cal Tan, Body Drench, Supre and JA. Early on I discovered these products are available in every beauty supply store in the country, both wholesale and retail. I droped all lines except JA because of what I felt was John's commitment to the industry. I called all the manufacturer's and distributer's and complained about these practices. No one seemed to care. Now over the past 6-9 months this is all anyone seems to care about. I have to ask why however you care? I'm in business to make money you should be too. All of the manufacturer's and distributer's are here to make money too. So they are doing what they have to do, so should we. If everyone who I see complaining on line or in trade magazines would complain to the companies and then drop their product someone would finally get the idea. So if you drop all the so called "major" lines whats left to carry? Anyone hear of private label? Come on salon owners start lining your own pockets with cash instead of theirs Again just my opinion what do you think?Have A Nice DayJeff

You will not find Swedish Beauty or Australian Gold in the beauty stores.You might have a client tell you they got Aus. Gold in Florida cheap, but I just remind them in joking manner that it only cost them about $600.00 to get there AG for $8 or whatever.

No but you will find them on the internet and flea markets. Oh and ETS is in every womens magazine and even on TV selling their plastic beds to homeowners. Is this better or worse? ETS is also the one capping discounts while they sell direct to larger chains. Again do I care, no because I won't buy from them but all I'm saying is we know they are doing this so why do we give them are money? I just see everyone complaining instead of doing something about it.

Tan-U-Too,It cost you $600 to get to Florida if you don't live here or leave in Ga, AL, LA, NC,SC, or other driving state.The other problem is how many Flea marketers and Internet preople load up their trunks or trailers and drive north?Indoor tanning products should only be sold in indoor tanning salon. That's my policy and believe other manufacturers should respect salon owners that much as well.

I personally feel that all tanning lotions should state what paul mitchels products state on the back of their bottles. It's something like this product is only for sale in profesional salons if you bought it somewhere else it might not be what it says it is. It says something like that. TANNING LOTIONS SHOULD ONLY BE SOLD IN TANNING SALONS...
