Recently, I have received emails and comments from customers who purchased a product called “FuturDerm Age Erased.” However, this is NOT our product. We are not in any way affiliated with the company that provides this product. We have never given them permission to use our name.
This is a serious matter. Since 2013, we have owned a trademark for “FutureDerm®” (US TM Reg. #4295645) for matters related to “beauty, dermatology, skin care, nutrition, personal development and […] related retail”. Since that time, we have had customers in 16 countries, including the UK.
This is what is known as an “example of confusion”. For those of you who aren’t familiar with trademark laws, this is why you don’t see products called “Koka-Kola” or “Shanel” legally on the market. It is simply too confusing for consumers.
This is stressful for me on many levels. Nothing like this has happened to me before. I have worked very hard to build the FutureDerm® name, a brand that has received nearly 10 million views online and been featured in publications online and offline like SHAPE, Redbook, Total Beauty, Fitness, and more. I am hurt and I am angry, but I am pursuing several legal options to protect our name.
From a purely practical perspective, I am writing this post to inform the consumer that FutureDerm® is NOT IN ANY WAY AFFILIATED WITH “FuturDerm.” If you choose to purchase products from “FuturDerm,” please know that FutureDerm®, Inc does not support, endorse, manufacture, sell, or have any affiliation at all with these other products. When you write us emails about AgeErased, I cannot help you, answer questions, or refund your money. I have been receiving these requests, and I am writing this post to help alleviate the confusion this has caused many of you.
