More complaint filed against Magic Skin by dealers      

A group of dealers of Magic Skin products lodged a complaint with Pol Gen Veerachai Songmetta, the national deputy chief, at the Royal Thai Police head office on Sunday, claiming that he had purchased 20 million baht worth of the Kao brand products from the company and had not received any products from it nor was refunded.


The group’s lawyer, Mr Ronnarong Kaewpetch, told the media that the dealers found out that the Kao brand products they bought from Magic Skin were manufactured from the same plant which was earlier raided by police and officials from the Food and Drug Administration’s Office.

They complained that they had not received any of the products they ordered from the company nor were they refunded.


Pol Gen Veerachai said officials had discovered that the ingredients found in Kao products did not match with the ingredients announced in the advertisements.  For that matter, he said the company could be faulted for public fraud and this would be a separate offence from the earlier offences allegedly committed by the firm.

Khao Lak – City Video Guide

Khao Lak – City Video Guide

While full of appealing beaches and lush jungles, Khao Lak has not quite arrived on the tourism scene just yet. As a result of its quiet location, your Khao Lak tour will likely be very relaxing as you adapt to the slower pace of life in the area. Many of the locals live in huts on the seashore, or in small villages, and make their living via fishing and selling their wares to visitors. You won’t find high-rise skyscrapers or fancy resorts in Khao Lak. Instead, you’ll stay in charming, secluded accommodations that fit in perfectly with the area’s natural surroundings. Khao Kal sightseeing no doubt includes a tour of the area’s interior. Tropical jungles and beautiful waterfalls are located right on the coastline, so you can emerge from an exploration of the interior and splash right into the warm Andaman Sea. For even more natural beauty, head to Cheo Larn Lake, located right near Khao Lak. This 64-square mile freshwater lake is navigable by boat, and sports some truly stunning landscapes.
