and products sound like a Pharmaceutical company or product and then make
wild, un-proven and illegal claims about the products abilities and affects.
Then back the claims with fake, false, stolen, biased or non-existent
studies) Three owners Dennis Gay, Evan Bybee, and Dr Dan Mowrey (Medical
Doctor? Not) Paula Begoun´s take on StriVectin-SD (from latest newsletter)
>>> ( ) StriVectin-SD: Better than Botox? Quite a few of you have written
asking about the rather prominent newspaper ads for the product
StriVectin-SD($135 for 6 ounces). With a headline that reads "Better than
Botox," along with the increasing number of topical products hitting the
market claiming they can mimic the effects of Botox without "painful
injections," I certainly understand the curiosity. I wrote about
StriVectin-SD in a previous newsletter, when a reader asked about its
abilityto repair stretch marks. That was StriVectin's original marketing
claim to fame, though the fame was all self-promoted, as there is not a
single independent, peer-reviewed study to prove that StriVectin is an
effective option for repairing stretch marks. The studies that do exist
aboutStriVectin's benefits for stretch marks were paid for by Klein-Becker,
the company that distributes StriVectin. According to the company's latest
ads, they were surprised to find that not only was StriVectin-SD getting rid
of women's stretch marks, but also that somehow their facial wrinkles were
going away, too. For that reason, we now have the astounding "anti-wrinkle
breakthrough of the decade." Regrettably, no supportive research needs to be
available to sell this kind of hyperbole. All it takes is to promise women
that a product will get rid of their wrinkles and they will buy it in
droves,no matter how many other product lines, infomercials, advertisements,
or cosmetics salespeople pledge the exact same thing. StriVectin's ad
continues with "The active formula in StriVectin-SD has recently been shown
in clinical trials to significantly reduce that category of fine lines and
facial wrinkles that can add 10–15 years to your appearance...and even
reducethe dark circles under your eyes...without irritation, painful
injections, or surgery." One more flourish is the statement that "in fact,
[StriVectin-SD] is the only topical formulation clinically proven to
effectively confront every aspect of wrinkle reduction." It is easy to
debunkall of this overblown nonsense by pointing out the product's lack of
sunscreen; perhaps StriVectin overlooked the research about sun exposure's
deleterious, wrinkling, and discoloring effects on skin. Klein-Becker has
parlayed these claims into what appears to be little more than an effort to
spin off the popularity of Botox to its own benefit. StriVectin-SD is
supposedly preferred because its long-term results versus the short-term
results (and repeated treatments) of Botox. A Dr. Nathalie Chevreau is
quotedin the ad, saying "the cumulative effects of using a product like
StriVectin become more noticeable every day, and ultimately last longer than
Botox." Chevreau is hardly an impartial source, as she works for
Klein-Becker. Further, Dr. Chevreau is a licensed dietician in Utah, a fact
that is conveniently left out of StriVectin's ad because it would conflict
with her credibility as a medical doctor speaking about the legitimate
benefits of an antiwrinkle cream. The final Botox comparison comes from the
ad's statement that StriVectin not only addresses the _expression lines
Botoxtreats, but also the lines Botox doesn't affect. However, the only
linesBotox wouldn't affect are the ones not injected. Needless to say,
Klein-Becker's statements comparing StriVectin-SD to Botox have not gone
unnoticed by Allergan, the company that manufactures the drug. According to
an article in The Salt Lake Tribune, Allergan has threatened to sue
Klein-Becker for false advertising and unfair business practices. After the
tension continued to mount on both sides, Klein-Becker actually went ahead
and took the case to court, asking a federal judge to approve its
advertisingfor StriVectin-SD. As this newsletter goes to press, Klein-Becker
has not taken their lawsuit any further. In the meantime, the "Better than
Botox" ads remain in wide circulation and are sent via spam emails, and
StriVectin-SD is now available at Nordstrom department stores. So is
StriVectin better than Botox? The short answer is no--and that means no way,
and nohow. It isn't even better than the daily use of an effective
sunscreen!StriVectin is merely a moisturizer with some good emollients and
antioxidants, though the addition of peppermint oil is extremely
suspect--thetingle is probably meant to lead women to believe that the
product is doing something to their skin. Botox prevents the use of facial
muscles, and that instantaneously smoothes out the skin. StriVectin-SD won't
alter the wrinkling on any part of your face, not in the long term, and not
in the short term. Incidentally, the two studies quoted in StriVectin's ads
for "Better than Botox" were supposedly from information presented at the
20th World Congress of Dermatology, held in July 2002. These examined the
effects of palmitoyl pentapeptide-3 (trade name: Matrixyl, but also known as
Pal-KTTKS, which is the term used in StriVectin's ads) and compared it to
vitamin C and retinol. However, there is no published research
substantiatingthe results, and StriVectin declined to send us any
documentation. Zantrex Zantrex-3 Zantrex 3 side effects are identical to
those associated with excessive caffeine consumption (Zantrex is primarily
marketed as a "proprietary xanthine-based stimulant", but xanthine is simply
caffeine). You may be interested to know that one serving of Zantrex 3 will
provide you with more caffeine than you'd obtain from 3 cups of coffee -- so
caffeine-related side effects may be quite prominent in some people. It's
also important to note that caffeine has many of the side-effects associated
with ephedra (nervousness, increased blood pressure, heart palpitations, and
so on) and although common in many foods (coffee, chocolate, various soft
drinks, etc., etc.) may not be for everyone. It's also possible that because
of its high caffeine content, you may experience withdrawal symptoms when
youstop taking Zantrex 3. 3. The Fraud. They hire a slick marketing team
(Mitchell k. Friedlander and Micheal Meade) Both already found guilty in two
other states of the same type of fraud.

DrDan Mowrey have been so mean and nasty in their growth and greed it was
nothard to find employees and ex-employees that were willing to talk. I have
talked to at least ten and have a list of 30 more to follow up on in my next
report.. So far it is all the same story,. The owners are "scumbags" and
threaten to file suit against any employee or entity that comes near them.
They have filed tons of lawsuits so they now have some teeth. Money will do
that. Below is a small list of what employees and ex employees have said
about the companies. 1b. Routine for them to change labels on a product
instead of changing the product for sale or export. Thailand was the
example.. 2b. Not paying employees agreed upon pay or bonuses. (Several have
taken company to labor board.) 3b. Constant threats to employees for talking
about the company’s shady business practices. 4b.Many allegations of tax
evasion and hidden pay packages to management. Apparently also paying Mitch
Friedlander in may "exotic" ways like paying his friends, Dog, Mother and
paying for his unreported living expenses, Lexus ,penthouse apartment
throughAPRL and paying him as a consultant even after more than four years.
5b. Selling products under false or with misleading representations and wild
and false marketing practices. (Example is Strivectin stretch mark cream the
is now a miracle wrinkle cream. 6b. Firing anyone who knows too much or ask
questions about finance dept practices. 7b. Firing employees after the
employee discover illegal workers in the company and then keeping the
illegalworkers. 6b. Dennis Gay Family members working at the company are out
of control and unbearable to work with. 7b.Company owners talking about how
devious they are and what they can do to screw with people in front of
employees. 8b. Using other companies names like Nordstroms to lend
themselvescredibility in the market place and example is placing the
Nordstroms name on http://www.basicresearch.org 9b. Systematic effort to
hidetheir identities through holding companies or secret domain registrars.
(Domains by Proxy http://www.domainsbyproxy.com/ ) and others. 10b. False or
broken promises of company stock to employees and potential partners and
evencousins of Dennis Gay. 11b. Un-paid vendors or terms stretched to the
point of settlement. 12b. Price fixing, Threats and actions against any
distributors who do not sell products at the set price. best example is
Strivectin at 135 dollars. 13b. Employees leaving the company solely for
ethical reasons 14b. Accusations of Evan Bybee entering into the offices of
Tree house marketing group after hours and after they ended their marketing
relationship. 15b. Boiler room sales tactics. about 100 of the employees at
the family of fraud companies are telemarketers. 16b. Current investigations
by the FDA FTC IRS and The Committee on Energy and Commerce and the Attorney
Generals office. Below is an exact statement from a former employee.
http://www.ripoffreport.com/report54520.htm "There are countless companies
who have worked with Basic Research that have NEVER been paid. I cannot say
enough about this company. Basic Research has been ripping people off for
over 10 years. As a former employee, I know!!! The are wiley and sue
everyonethey come in contact with. I will never do business with them again.
they claim to have a good reputation in the industry. Like Hell. The people
who know, know these guys are scum. Especially the owners Dennis Gay, Evan
Bybee and Dr. Morey. There are very few manufacturers and individuals they
have not ripped off. No matter what you hear about this company if it is
good, DO NOT BELIeVE IT. Maybe you could ask them to tell you how they pay
Mitch. He is their director of marketing and just happens to be a convicted
felon. No wonder they pay his dog and his wife to hide from the IRS. There
are hundreds if not thousands of individuals who would like to see this
company go down by the throat. I hear they are in Bankruptcy anyway and will
probably go to Jail for Tax Evasion. There are countless companies who have
worke d with Basic Research that have NEVER been paid, and we are talking
about 100's of thousands of dollars here. They rip you off and then say "go
ahead and sue us" well I hope someone does. Get this, In GNC there is a sign
in the back room from Basic Research that says "if anyone returns one of
their products to get their name address copy of the drivers license and
social security number and so Basic Research can sue you." Yes they sue
customers who return their products. What a joke of a company. Class act
these guys are. If I were you I would run like hell if you see their name on
a product. Because they do not work and if you return it, they will sue you.
And they act under many different names because they hide what they do.
Please research this company and take them down! You will make 10,000 people
happier than you could ever imagine."
