Many of the medical aesthetic practitioners out there will have received an email from White Lotus Anti Aging regarding their “CE certified” needle roller, they say they have their own clinic and supply antiaging products from their website with a PO Box address in Banbury, Oxfordshire.
We at Genuine Dermaroller™ were pleased they recognised that the minimum standard should be CE certification as a sterile medical device, so we thought we would get a colleague to order one. It arrived in packaging and labelling that was obviously not compliant with the medical device directive, it stated White Lotus Anti Aging but the address listed was in Australia!! It did though have the mark CE0197, this refers to the German medical device notified body TUVRheinland. So we sent the information and pictures of the product and packaging to our Genuine Dermaroller™ German colleagues to check this out. They contacted TUVRheinland who replied that they had never heard of White Lotus and had no record of their claimed certification. The translation of their response is below. Interestingly there is a section on the White Lotus website “Why you can trust us” & “Derma Roller Truths”.......
Genuine Dermaroller™ provides German medical-device engineering & manufacturing expertise, the device patients and practitioners can trust.
