RationalWiki's 2018 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff — we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone seeing this today donates $5, we will meet our goal for 2018.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Purity Products is a manufacturer/peddler of homeopathetic remedies, specifically dietary supplements and more specifically, vitamin supplements.

Their products[edit]

A quick search [1] shows that the bulk of their products are pseudovitamins that give in to the latest fad diet and nutrition crazes, such as selling products loaded with vitamin D and resveratrol. Like the makers of HeadOn, their products are promoted heavily on radio and television, although (unlike HeadOn) usually through infomercials.[2] Purity Products also likes to brand their products as "evidence-based," even though they have released no studies or data to back such claims. Their Advisory Panel seems about as full of crankery as you can get.[3]

Customer satisfaction[edit]

Apparently, they do not have a good track record with their customers either,[4] [5] and not just because their products are loaded with more woo than help. They even have to have a web page dedicated to responding to accusations that they're scam artists.[6]
