If our regulatory division in the country was not inactive, this product would have been removed from our shelves a long time ago.

    Hi I have just purchased a box of 10 detox foot pads.Stupidly before doing any research. So have decided to actually use them and judge for myself even though logically and scientifically it does not make any sense whatsoever!! I will post my findings (try daily)


    The Internet is invaluable to all users.
    Thank you so much, almost waste my money!
