Johnson & Johnson's supermarket product: 'Radiant Skin Facial Scrub' gave me Rosacea, which I discovered soon after, is a lifetime sentence. What price do you place on skin damage to your face, you now, have to permanently manage?

When my sister heard their product had given me Rosacea, she added that her daughter,
friend and herself had had a negative reaction to the Aveeno moisturizer; among four people four negative reactions?

I persisted against Johnson and Johnson's Australia (contact number on container) fob-offs for a long time until I finally gave up. During this time I discovered they really are a dark company with many, many law suits against them world-wide, and completely at ease to have cancerous toxins in their products, including in baby products until late 2013 they finally, under pressure, fazed out some of the most toxic chemicals in some of their formula's. No wonder they were so reluctant and disinterested in me. They bullied, ignored the doctors report they'd asked for, then sent me on a wild goose chase.

Excerpts taken from former J&J's marketer article: https://www.forbes.com/sites/davidvinjamuri/2012/02/16/why-i-wont-invest-in-jj-and-dont-trust-tylenol/#147624ff7f39
"Four years ago, I would have said that Johnson & Johnson was one of the best companies in the world. As a former J&J marketer (for almost half of the 90's) and a second generation J&J alum (my dad worked in finance for J&J in the 60's), I was proud of the ethical standards of the company. No longer".
"JNJ used to be a great place to work. Now, the higher level management is full of mediocre, self-serving yes-men. It's really sad how the company has changed". One thing kept resurfacing, a theme which I also heard from friends still at Johnson & Johnson: the company culture has changed. "The Credo is Dead":
"So I am sad to say that as a parent and an ex-employee, I no longer trust the company or its brands. And as an investor, I won't be putting my money in Johnson & Johnson".

It was around this time that I had my first encounter with Johnson & Johnson and fully experienced it's 'culture' first hand. I have since read they are now living on the Legacy of their name.

In a baby product reviews, one mother lives with the on going dilemma, was it the Johnson & Johnson "No More Tears baby shampoo", that had in time, caused her young child's death, due to cancer.

When they reply to negative website reviews with: 'We're sorry you've experienced this, please contact us', what they mean is: We've got heaps of forms for you to fill out, information for our benefit and purposes only and thank you.

I also discovered a far darker side to Johnson & Johnson that goes way beyond their toxic products and money hungry, lack of care. But when we had corporate take over of the internet this information was taken down. (As was a lot of other valuable information spanning the internet, but unless you'd already seen it, you don't know it's know it's gone).

To those unaffected by and oblivious to Johnson & Johnson's shady empire, you're straight out lucky.

I'm updating this review tonight as I'm adding it to https://www.sitejabber.com/online-business-review and I see a lady is awarded $160 million damages in 2017 due to Johnson & Johnson talcum powder/cancer and has since died. I see it says on the label: SLEEP BETTER, MILDNESS CLINICALLY PROVEN. She's more than sleeping, I wonder which clinic proved the mildness? https://www.nzherald.co.nz/business/news/article.cfm?c_id=3&objectid=11850820

I also discovered tonight, there is an Auckland based NZ Johnson & Johnson Ltd. I may again pursue them on home ground, I really need the help of media who cannot so easily be dismissed. People would also be given the truth of who they are dealing with when buying from Johnson & Johnson.

This is what Johnson & Johnson have to say LOL:

GOVERNANCE & ETHICS
Our Transparency
The Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies has a long history of collaborating to fuel innovation.

Our Credo challenges us to put the needs and well-being of the people we serve first, and it is through our commitment to ethics and transparency that we earn the trust and confidence of all of our stakeholders, including those we serve.

AND YET:

US pharmaceutical giant Johnson & Johnson was Thursday ordered to pay out $4.69 billion in damages in a lawsuit representing 22 women and their families who alleged a talc sold by the company contained asbestos and caused them to suffer cancer. ... J&J said it was "deeply disappointed in the verdict ."Jul 13, 2018

August, I ordered an appliance. 1Outlet then stalled & frustrated me in every way for months, including no longer answering the contact ph no they give or replying to voice messages as they say they will, They told me my refund had been initiated maybe six times when it hadn't. Here's a few of many emails:

-email from me to- 1Outlets/Simba customer Support:
Tue, Nov 27, 2018, 9:40 AM
For four months I have waited for a product that never arrived and a refund that I was told would take seven to thirty days a month and a half ago.
If I do not hear from you within the next two days I will be taking this matter to the police as fraud.
Thank you.

-reply from 1Outlets/Simba Customer Support to me-
Rita R., Nov 28, 11:38 AM +08:
Dear Ms./Mr. Janine,

Thank you for contacting us.

I am passing your request to the relevant team to check on your refund and update you that it is correct at the soonest.

Your patience is greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Rita R.

1Outlets/Simba to me -Miranda W., Dec 8, 9:09 PM +08:
Dear Ms./Mr. JANINE,

Please give me 24-48 (Business) hours to investigate.

I promise to come back to you as soon as possible, without delay.

Thank you.

Miranda W.

-email from 1Outlets/Simba to me: (at this point I still haven't received a refund!):
Dec 12, 12:06 PM

Thank you, JANINE! You have been a gracious customer. Thank you ;)

I am Sorry. We could have done better.

I hope we (our team, or my friends) managed to solve our issue.

May I ask you for help to do a very quick 1-question rating/review, please. It means a lot to me (to all of us).

Some reviewers (without real profile pictures or new accounts) would leave extraordinarily negative or hurtful reviews. (Your kind words or appreciation would really mean a lot. * smile *)

AND:
Charlize Ha., Dec 12, 12:06 PM +08:

Hi Charlize Ha,

I appreciate your wishes for a fantastic year ahead.

However I am still unsure whether the refund has been forwarded to the appropriate bank account or whether I still need to access the police.

Thank you

I need an immediate reply.

Dec 12, 2018, 11:03 PM

The email you sent at 9.26 pm tonight does not contain any information.

Please do a new compose. I have absolutely had enough of your company messing me around.

Dec 12, 2018, 11:21 PM
I have read reviews, I am ringing police tomorrow morning.

Dec 12, 2018, 11:28 PM
In the real world, your business conduct involves jail time.

(That night I was so annoyed, I also left comments all over their website, which may have made a difference.)

THE REFUND SUDDENLY FOUND IT'S WAY TO MY BANK ACCOUNT THE NEXT DAY, WITH A PH CALL FROM A VERY EXCITED REPRESENTATIVE SAYING TO LOOK, THE REFUND IS THERE.

I believe 1Outlets/Simba has become a big money taking ring.

LOL The comments I left on their website that night are the last three I've just seen at the bottom in customer questions and answers.
