Additional Complaint Information

On December 29, 2009, BBB recognized a pattern of complaints from consumers regarding delivery and customer service issues. Consumers allege once they order and pay for a product from Lotion Source, they either receive no confirmation or are notified the product has been back-ordered, despite its "in-stock" status. Consumers claim their product is delivered late or not at all. Consumers further allege the company is not responsive to requests for assistance.

Lotion Source is working with BBB in an effort to eliminate the underlying cause of the pattern of complaints.
