Hoodia Slender Gel / Slender Max

Posted 5 February 2009

A consumer complaint against a Hoodia Slender Gel internet advertisement that appeared on and on promotional pamphlets was laid with the ASA. The advertisements claims that the product, inter alia, “SUPPRESSES APPETITE”, or “will assist with: SUPRESSING YOUR APPETITE & CRAVINGS” “REDUCES CRAVINGS” INCREASES ENERGY LEVELS “ENHANCES SKIN TONE”, OR “will assist with: … IMPROVING YOUR SKIN TONE” “will assist with: … REDUCING THE APPEARANCE OF CELLULITE” “will assist with: … INCREASING BODY DETOXIFICATION”.

We said: Nonsense – no robust evidence to support this claim!

What did the ASA rule?

NB: This product has changed its name from Hoodia Slender Gel to Slender Max
