I get asked from time to time about different health trends. I was recently asked my opinion concerning the product line by It Works. I was specifically asked about Skinny Pack and the Skinny Wrap. I looked for information on the web, and specifically I was interested in the ingredients.
I have had a body wrap before. My massage therapist asked me if I had ever done one, and I had not. I liked the idea that herbs could help my body detoxify, and I was using herbs already, so why not. I went to her office and she told me that she had been working with the herbs over night, and had the formula melding overnight for me. The ingredients were fresh, and they were warm. I let her apply the herbs and then wrap me like a mummy. I lay on the table for approximately 45 minutes. When the procedure was over, I was indeed, several inches thinner. The transformation lasted about a week.
Now, I was not into health the way I am now, and I do not remember that I was eating organic, or even fresh foods. However, I was pleased with the results, even though they were short-lived.
With this product, called the Skinny Pack and the Skinny Wrap, I cannot find any information about the ingredients. What are the active ingredients? Are they herbs? Are they chemicals? Are they as combination of both? I cannot find any print information. I can find testimonials. I can find tutorials. I cannot find an ingredients list. I cannot find that there is a certified, third-party certificate that states what they claim is in the wraps is actually what is in the wraps.
So…. How can I have an opinion on a mystery product….. What I do know is that it is a multi-level marketing company. I don’t like these types of companies in general, although, I do use a few myself from time to time. I find that because they have to pay their ‘downline,’ often times the price is artificially high so that everyone gets their cut of the sales price. For the product to be affordable and for everyone to have a slice of the pie, the companies often will compromise on the integrity of the product. I am not saying that this happens EVERY time, but it does happen.
As I said, I have used detox wraps before. Mine have been specially prepared by a licensed therapist, and the ingredients were fresh, organic, and did their job. If you are looking for this type of product, I suggest you research your local spas and find a qualified therapist who can assist you.
Until next time,
