SandiSacksteinUpdate 21 October 2013: It has come to our attention, that the actual person behind the product is Sandi Sackstein.

If you overindulged during the festive season and made one of those “lose weight/get fit” new year resolutions, you’ll be particularly vulnerable to the marketing ploys of the slimming product and fitness club industries.

ASA Sanctions against Easy Thin (Betrim/Organoslim/Johan Brittz)

Posted 12 January 2012

In this ruling, the ASA has bared its teeth. Johan Brittz is the person behind the scam products, Organoslim, Be-trim, and Easythin. Clearly without conscience, he simply changes the name of the product, and/or the formulation, and continues to sell these scam products.

"The complainant firstly objected on the basis that the weight loss claims made are false, and have no scientific basis or proof. In addition, the claim that the product is registered with the MCC is also not true, and somewhat suspicious, seeing that the registration number quoted is the same as that quoted for the respondent’s Be-Trim and Organoslim products. Lastly, the complainant noted that the respondent has received various adverse rulings and/or sanctions for non-compliance with the Code and existing rulings. Clearly the respondent is flagrantly disregarding the rulings and the Code, and severe sanctions are warranted."

Microslim – ASA ruling

Posted 13 October 2011

Sandy Brittz  and Johan Brittz  are two individuals who sell products (Be-Trim, Microslim, Organo Slim) with no evidence that they can result in weight loss. In fact, as suspected, the products may be the same rubbish but given different names ("if this one does not help you, try this other one"). The owner(s),  Sandy Brittz  and Johan Brittz who we have previously written about, live the high life in Lladudno, off the proceeds of these baloney products. You may be as curious as I was to know where they live: here

Organo Slim, again!

Posted 04 August 2011

Readers will be aware that there has been numerous ASA rulings against this product's claims, and other variants being sold by the same individual, Johan Brittz, who lives in the very expensive area of Llandudno.

Here the complainant argued that the same unsubstantiated claims are being made and that the owner is flagrantly ignoring the ASA's rulings.

Bet-Trim ASA breach ruling

"In Be-Trim / L De Weerdt / 8660 (24 May 2007), the Directorate ruled that the advertisement claiming, inter alia, “20 Kilos in 3 Weke!!” (20 Kilos in 3 Weeks) and having several personal references of people losing weight as a result of using this product, had to be withdrawn because the respondent did not submit substantiation for the relevant claims."

Complaint: "The respondent is clearly flagrantly ignoring the ASA’s regulations and rulings. Despite knowing full well about the requirements in the Code, the respondent is simply carrying on advertising more such products."

Respondent: " The respondent ends with an emotional appeal, explaining that it is not a big company, yet it is providing income for 6 families and if it cannot advertise its products these families will not have an income."

(Note: The owner, Johan Brittz lives in the very expensive area of Llandudno)

Easy Thin

The weight-loss product, Easy Thin, is a product owned by Sandi Brittz. The product is advertised at w Can you believe any of the claims on this site?

Here is a clue. Sandi Brittz is a member of the team (and Johan Brittz) that also sells Organo Slim and Be trim. Both products do not a shred of evidence that they work (never mind whether they are safe). Without evidence, these products may be nothing but scams.

The site claims “Easy Thin is a South African product, manufactured by a registered pharmaceutical company. Both company and product is fully registered with the South African Medicines Control Council. Registry Number: 017201″. Firstly, this product is NOT registered with the MCC. Fact! Secondly, how it is possible that Easy Thin, Organo Slim, and Bet Trim, all have the same registry number? mmmmm….. Looks like a big … Read the rest

Beware of Johan Brittz!

Posted 21 March 2011

I assume you ask, why target a specific individual, and why?

Simple explanation:

Johan Brittz*, according to the registration information at, is the domain registrant (owner) of the websites (and products) Organo Slim and Betrim. As posted before, there is absolutely not a shred of proof that these products work, and therefore may be nothing more than scams.

In spite of previous ASA rulings, Johan Brittz simply advertises a product with a different name in M-NET’s TV Guide (Magic). In the April 2011 a new advert appears for a product called Microslim ( Be cautioned, there is not a shred of evidence that this product has any efficacy.
