GlitterSniffer Cosmetics: Quality Control Concerns

With the attempted reopening of GlitterSniffer Cosmetics there are still many issues and concerns that need to be addressed. The first of those, refunds, were addressed the other day. Another issue facing GS is the issue of quality control.

I've previously posted photos showing the packing and formulating processes of GS. The photo below has not yet been published to the blog and I include it here as a gentle reminder that the concerns in the past with packaging without the use of gloves appear to be valid. It shows an ungloved hand, covered in pigment, holding a stacker.

GlitterSniffer Cosmetics Proprietor Lela Warren has both in the past and within the last few days committed to doing things the right way in attempting to reopen GS.

Last week Lela asked on her personal page for assistance with many aspects of the GS relaunch. One of the tasks she asked for help with was preparing samples. Whoever took advantage of this offer was to keep half for themselves and package the remaining portion. There were several affirmative responses to this offer.

While it is understandable that in attempting a relaunch GS may need help with certain tasks there are some that should, as a matter of safety and manufacture compliance, fall absolutely under their purview. There is no way, even with a list of rules, that GS can 100% confirm that these samples are to be made in a clean, sterile, and safe environment. In entrusting packaging to internet friends from a social networking site the company is going down the same path it has already been down previously. These business decisions show a lack of forethought in terms of all the implications in making them, however inadvertent those implications may be and are a cause for concern in terms of the relaunch.
