Philips Blue Touch Pain Relief Patch

Post by Dubious Dick » Mon Oct 26, 2015 5:35 pm

It is some considerable time since my complaint to the ASA regarding this 'wonder' product. In fact can't recall off top pf head when, but have a feeling it was very early this year or late last. Today received this missive from the ASA. Shall try to remember to post again when I hear further:

Apologies for not being in touch regarding our investigation into the Philips Blue Touch Pain Relief Patch. We have received a detailed submission from the advertiser and it has been necessary to source an independent expert to review the evidence. We hope that their report will be with us towards the end of June.

I will update you with further developments.

Best wishes

Apart from anything else I don't know how they can claim that shining a blue led light on your skin is in any way a 'natural' therapy.
Don't blame me - I voted remain :con

clinically proven back pain relief
Have they published these results?
Well, at least they offer this:
Test it: 30-day money-back guarantee
See for yourself how it works and test Philips BlueTouch! If not satisfied, you will receive your money back within 30 days of the purchase date.
I have a feeling that there is some beauty facial treatment you can have that sounds similar, based on light, can't remember what it is called now. No, I haven't tried it.... :wry
