Terms and Conditions

  1. This Site contains information about health and beauty care products that may or may not be available in certain parts of the world and/or that may be available under different trademarks. Additionally, the products may be subject to approval or clearance processes in some countries by various governmental agencies, and this may result in different indications, ingredients, restrictions, and labeling.

You should not construe anything at this Site as a promotion or a solicitation for any product or the possible use of any product that is not authorized by the laws and regulations of the country in which you are located. Combe is in the process of developing its Site to provide links to international sites providing information about Combe products, businesses and operations at such international locations.

Finally, descriptions of Combe’s products contained within this Site shall not constitute product labeling; you should use Combe’s products in accordance with the instructions contained on the cartons and labels found on those products in the country of purchase.
