Lampe Berger (1)

by kiawin

Recent beef noodle trip reminded me about a multi-level marketing (MLM) company named Lampe Berger, which now I plan to do some research, and release here as a reference for some of you, who considering to be part of LB.

Dr. Liew mentioned a news snippet of Lampe Berger Aromatherapy products, which caused many unwanted incident of burnt injury. Some might insist that this is purely an accident, and not the product’s fault itself. However, we do not deny the fact the composition of their aromatherapy products contains 97% flammable chemicals named Isopropyl alcohol. Several points we need to bear in mind why Isopropyl alcohol shouldn’t be used in aromatherapy. 1st of all, it’s flammable. 2nd of all, it’s dumb to burn Isopropyl alcohol, as it gives you flushing, headache, dizziness, CNS depression, nausea, vomiting, anesthesia, and coma. 3rd of all, it’s not to be used in a closed environment. 4th of all, by burning Isopropyl alcohol does not give you any health advantage/treatment like other natural aromatherapy oil.

2. Sunshine Foundation (Taiwan)
3. Taiwan Government’s action upon LB’s Isopropyl alchol chemicals (again.. i meant aromatheraphy oil).

Yes.. I wish to whack’em kau kau ;-)
