Press Release: Dutch researchers partner with Swiss cannabis company for researching safe and natural alternatives to solving sleep problems

Press Release: Dutch researchers partner with Swiss cannabis company for researching safe and natural alternatives to solving sleep problems

Sleep disorders and insufficient sleep have a high prevalence worldwide and numbers are increasing each year costing society a fortune.

The Netherlands shows a point prevalence of 32.1% in 2016. Symptoms include poor sleep quality, non-restorative sleep, early awakenings, and difficulty initiating and maintaining sleep. More importantly but barely recognized by health professionals and the general public are the health hazards people risk by not getting enough good quality sleep.

There is an increased risk for diabetes, obesity, hypertension, coronary heart disease (CHD), stroke, mental disorders, including anxiety and depression, but also dementia suppressed immune system and death due to cancer, stroke and CHD. A relevant study carried out by RAND Corporation calculated that sleep deprivation costs 1.56-1.86% of GDP yearly in Germany and United Kingdom respectively, accounting for 13–15 Billion Euro per year in The Netherlands and 50-60 Billion Euro per year in Germany and The United Kingdom.

Cannabinoids in cannabis could be the solution

Researchers, attached to the University of Groningen in the Netherlands, believe that the promising values of full spectrum cannabidiol (CBD) and cannabinol (CBN) products can have calming neuroprotective and sedative effects on the central nervous system, and thus may be safe alternatives for sleep problems.

The Dutch researchers are planning a large double-blinded, randomized placebo-controlled crossover trial study on more than 300 people in The Netherlands using legal cannabis products from the Swiss cannabis producer, Formula Swiss AG, on patients with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and musculoskeletal pain due rheumatoid arthritis (RA).

This study will give insight into the potential benefit of cannabinoids on sleep by influencing the underlying disease mechanisms, which also positively affects disease symptoms and thus quality of life. An individual that sleeps on average less than six hours per night has a 13 per cent higher mortality risk than someone sleeping between seven and nine hours. An individual sleeping between six to seven hours per day still has a seven per cent higher mortality risk.

Improving the total amount of sleep and sleep quality will not only reduce a long list of health problems, but also improve the quality of life, because good sleep is one of the cornerstones of good health.

Further analysis showed that if total sleep time of people, who currently sleep less than 6 hours per night, would be augmented to 6-7 hours, costs would drop to 1.10% - 1.60% GDP thereby saving society 2.17–3.85 Billion Euro per year.

Addressing sleep deprivation will reduce health and work-related costs dramatically.

New CBD RAW oils full of natural CBDa

New CBD RAW oils full of natural CBDa

We would like to share some exciting news with you.

Today, we are launching three, new CBD oils with a decarboxylation of just 60%, which ensures that the CBD oil keeps a high level of natural CBDa.

The products are available in our webshop.

What is CBDa?

CBDa stands for cannabidiolic acid, and as the name suggests, this molecule is closely related to CBD. In fact, scientists consider CBDa to be the parent molecule of CBD as it is converted to CBD through the process of decarboxylation (often through heating).

CBDa is what is known as a carboxylic acid, meaning that its structure contains a carboxyl group comprising one carbon, one hydrogen, and two oxygen atoms, commonly expressed as COOH. When you expose this molecule to high temperatures, this group breaks up to form carbon dioxide and hydrogen. What you are left with is cannabidiol (CBD).

Although to some extent this reaction happens naturally over time, the process is extremely slow. However, when you smoke or vape cannabis, you speed up the process greatly.

CBDa and cancer

One of the conditions for which CBDA is offering hope is cancer, specifically breast cancer. Studies have shown that CBDa has the potential to suppress breast cancer cells and inhibit them from spreading throughout the body, a process known as metastasis.

The researchers found that exposing cancer cells to CBDa for just 48 hours downregulated the expression of an enzyme called cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), which is part of the inflammatory process and may play a role in as many as 40% of cases of invasive breast cancer. CBDa also appeared to influence a gene called SHARP1 (also known as BHLHE41), which has the action of inhibiting breast cancer metastasis.

Since experts estimate metastasis to be responsible for up to 90% of the deaths related to breast cancer, this finding could prove vital in improving the prognosis for patients diagnosed with this life-threatening condition.

CBDa and inflammation

Since CBDa appears to inhibit COX-2, it has proven anti-inflammatory properties.
Many conventional anti-inflammatory drugs work by inhibiting COX-2, and doctors commonly prescribe them in the treatment of painful conditions such as arthritis.

CBDa, nausea and vomiting

A study found that CBDa effectively relieved toxin and motion-induced vomiting in shrews, and reduced nausea in rats. Most significantly, these scientists suggest that CBDa could reduce nausea and vomiting even more effectively than CBD.

It appears that these potent effects are a result of CBDa enhancing the activation of 5-HT1A receptors. These receptors are designed to bind with the neurotransmitter serotonin and are prevalent in the digestive system.
More research is definitely necessary to establish the effects of CBDA on nausea and vomiting in humans. However, if proven, this treatment could offer a much needed relief to patients suffering from the side effects of chemotherapy as well as nausea related to other conditions.

CBDA for stress and anxiety

There is little evidence currently available to support this use of CBDa, but some have suggested that this compound could be useful in the treatment of stress and anxiety in humans, due to many similarities with CBD.

Are CBD edibles illegal in Europe?

Are CBD edibles illegal in Europe?

In this article we will explain, why all CBD products for oral consumption - including CBD capsules, CBD gummies, CBD oils for oral consumption - and all other CBD edibles are currently considered illegal products in all EU Member States.

We will also give our opinion on, why our company and many other stakeholders in Europe believe the legal interpretation and enforcement of the laws inside the European Union are wrong as well as why the legal situation is expected to change in the coming years.

Definition of ‘Novel Food’

The first Novel Food regulation was introduced back in 1997 by Regulation (EU) 258/97 with the aim of establishing a food safety mechanism to control newly developed, synthetic or genetically produced food and food supplements. An updated version of the regulation came into force on January 1st, 2018 (Regulation (EU) 2015/2283).

According to art. 3, ‘novel food’ is defined as:

“any food that was not used for human consumption to a significant degree within the Union before May 15,1997”.

If a food is considered novel, the implications are that it must be authorised by the EU Commission and undergo a pre-market safety assessment by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), before it can be legally marketed in the EU.

The Novel Food Catalogue serves as a non-legally binding orientation on whether a product (of animal and plant origin, as well as other substances) will need an authorisation under the Novel Food Regulation. The Novel Food Catalogue reflects the opinion of the Member States. As such, references to the Novel Food Catalogue cannot be used restrict cannabis products in the European Union, nor in Switzerland, but nevertheless it is happening on a daily basis.

Cannabis in the Novel Food regulation

Until the end of 2018, extracts of cannabidiol were considered novel only if the levels of cannabidiol were “higher than the CBD levels in the source Cannabis sativa L.”. In other words, naturally derived cannabidiol was allowed, if it was in 2-5% concentration, which is the natural level of CBD in most EU-approved hemp strains, whereas stronger concentrations were considered novel and thus illegal.

The EU Standing Committee already decided in December 1997 and the Commission confirmed to the European hemp industry in writing in the beginning of 1998 literally:

“it was decided that foods containing parts of the hemp plant do not fall under the scope of the regulations EC 258/97” and also “that hemp flowers ... are considered to be food ingredients” (e. g. used for the production of beer-like beverages)”.

Obviously, hemp flowers and leaves being parts of the hemp plant, were not considered to be Novel Food.

In January 2019, EU Member States’ representatives updated the Novel Food Catalogue entries for “Cannabis sativa L.” and “Cannabinoids”. These updates are demonstrably incorrect, based on logic and historical facts, as organizations like European International Hemp Association (EIHA) and many others stakeholders repeatedly explained to Member States and the European Commission.

The new entry for “Cannabis sativa L.” does no longer mention hemp leaves and flowers. From this alone, it is obvious that the latest changes, which seem to be hastily written, concerning the entries in the Novel Food catalogue are incorrect. Moreover, the traditionally produced hemp extracts are now also missing, although extraction is considered as a traditional and conventional method of food processing.

In the new entry for “Cannabinoids” extracts with a naturally occurring level of cannabinoids are now excluded, although they were mentioned in the previous entry formulation. Such products were already on the market and consumed before 1997 to a significant degree.

Cannabis extraction in the EU legislation

CBD extracts can be aqueous extracts (e.g. “for beer-like beverages”), extracts by pressing, extracts based on fat extraction (“defatted hemp seed”) or extracts produced by traditional extraction agents.

Since 2009, the EU directive 2009/32/EC clearly states that traditional extraction agents, such as ethanol (alcohol) or CO2 (carbon dioxide), must be permitted by Member States in the production of foodstuffs or food ingredients.

In simple terms, this means that when a food or food ingredient is processed through a traditional production method of extraction by means of the extraction agents listed and authorized in the Directive, it remains a food or food ingredient and is not considered a "novel food" product (cf. Art. 2(1), 2nd subparagraph of the Directive).

The subsequent update of the Novel Food Regulation (2015/2283) can therefore, taking into account this already existing Directive 2009/32/EC, only mean novel extraction agents and "new extracts", but not extracts obtained and produced by the traditional extraction agents already regulated.

Substantial evidence against the Novel Food Catalogue

Several cannabis industry organizations in Europe have already shared substantial evidences with the European Commission proving that hemp flowers, leaves and extracts have been consumed as food for centuries and that the so-called "low-THC" varieties, defined as industrial hemp, have historically always contained cannabidiol (CBD). Particularly in these industrial hemp varieties - including those that were already listed in the EU catalogue of varieties long before 1997 - the respective content of CBD in relation to THC is very high compared to "high-THC" cannabis varieties.

The general industry position shared by our company as active members of and strong supporters of EIHA as well as legal experts is that hemp leaves and flowers as well as such hemp extracts from industrial hemp, with the natural content of cannabinoids, (i.e. those that are not enriched with CBD isolate and crystals) are traditional foods and do not fall under the scope of the Novel Food Regulation. This position is perfectly in line with the Novel Food Catalogue entries’ formulations in place until January 2019.

New full-spectrum CBD oils with a high concentration of CBG, CBN and CBC

New full-spectrum CBD oils with a high concentration of CBG, CBN and CBC

Today, we would like to share some exciting news with you.

We are launching three, new full-spectrum CBD oils with a high concentration of the most popular and effective cannabinoids - CBG, CBN and CBC.

The products will be available for ordering next week.

Full Spectrum CBG+CBD tincture

The 10 ml bottle contains 1% CBG (100 mg), 3% CBD (300 mg) and a full spectrum of cannabinoids with less than 0.2% THC diluted in organic MCT oil.

What is CBG?

Cannabigerol is the most well-known cannabinoid after CBD and THC - and very important one. In the hemp plant both THC and CBD actually originates from CBG.

Every cannabis grower tries to develop hemp strains with higher amounts of CBG due to the many benefits of the cannabinoid.

Why use CBG?

CBG is a very powerful vasodilator and has many neuroprotective benefits. As there are endocannabinoid receptors located within the eye structure, it is believed that CBG is one of the best cannabinoids for supporting glaucoma by decreasing the intraocular pressure in the eyes.

CBG may help against inflammation, colon disorders, irritable bowel, bladder dysfunctions, thyroid issues, Huntingtons Disease and inhibits abnormal cell growth etc.

Many also believe that CBG can block the receptors in the cancer cells, thus inhibiting growth of cancer cells. Read more about CBG.

Full Spectrum CBN+CBD tincture

The 10 ml bottle contains 1% CBN (100 mg), 3% CBD (300 mg) and a full spectrum of cannabinoids with less than 0.2% THC diluted in organic MCT oil.

Why Cannabinol (CBN)?

In short this cannabinoid is popular for stimulating appetite, servere pain, regulate sleep, CNS disorders, neuro-inflammatory disorders, firbrosis etc. Research has shown that it is also antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and sedative.

We just published a very detailed article about CBN that we recommend you read.

Full Spectrum CBC+CBD tincture

The 10 ml bottle contains 1% CBN (100 mg), 4% CBD (400 mg) and a full spectrum of cannabinoids with less than 0.2% THC diluted in organic MCT oil.

Why Cannabichromen (CBC)?

Although CBC has not been proven to have a direct pain-relieving effect on its own, the cannabinoid has another characteristic: its comprehensive pharmacological properties.

Scientists tested the cannabinoid and its substances for their possible anti-inflammatory and antibacterial effects in the early 1980s. CBC can act as an antibiotic against fungal infections and can be used as an antibiotic against bacteria that no longer respond to conventional antibiotics due to increasing resistance.

CBC may help support gastrointestinal, postoperative pain, Crohn’s Disease and gut health.

We also just published a very detailed article about CBC that we recommend you read as well.

Quality control in Switzerland

Our strategic partnership allow us to source personal protective equipment (PPE) from trusted suppliers with CE- and FDA certification and test certification on the productions at reasonable prices. As you have probably heard in the media already, many new factories in China, Taiwan and India have started to produce personal protective equipment with fake product licenses under conditions not suitable for medical equipment.

We have temporarily setup a joint unit in Switzerland to check the quality of all incoming products to avoid issues with product quality, quantity, damage during transport and to repack into packaging translated for the target country to ensure the receiver understands the correct use of the protective equipment. 

Now available for everyone

Now that the healthcare workers are well covered with personal protective equipment, we have decided to offer the products to private individuals through our webshops.

It is important in the weeks and months to come when societies start to gradually open up that everyone have access to quality personal protective equipment at affordable prices.

We have a stock of millions of different certified and licensed protective masks and more than 50.000 Liters of hand sanitisers available in our warehouse. Our prices are the lowest prices in Switzerland and we can deliver fast by UPS to any country in the World.

Please notice that the hand sanitiser produced in the United Kingdom has been effectively tested and certified against CovID-19 and other viruses. 

You can see the selection of PPE products here.

We will add more products to the webshops as we receive them.

We do not allow anyone to take advantage of the situation 

If you want to purchase a large quantity of products for your family, company, organisations or for donations, please contact us at wholesale@formulaswiss.com and inform us about the detailed purpose of the order and our team will evaluate it.

We do not allow anyone to resell our products and take financially advantage of the CovID-19 situation by pricing up our products, repacking them etc.

Our products are developed for private and non-medical usage only.

Steril antiseptic gel available in 50 ml

Steril antiseptic gel available in 50 ml

The Coronavirus pandemic has caused a global explosion in demand for medical supplies and in particular for medical-grade hand sanitisers for hospitals, clinics and private households.

The global supply is currently very limited and as such prices have gone through the roof as it is very challenging to source large quantities of ethanol for the extraction. Furthermore, the sourcing and transport of the product containers and packaging have become increasingly difficult.

Strategic partnership with Swiss pharmaceutical company for production of medical products

As we have a large extraction capability, we have worked together with a highly respective pharmaceutical company specialising in producing medicinal products in Switzerland. We have worked closely together to produce a steril antiseptic gel with 70% ethanol.

The new hand sanitiser product is licensed in Switzerland at BAV and throughly tested with a documented effect against standard bacteria, H1N1 flu etc. We have received numerous expert opinions on the quality and effect.

Purchase responsibly as we only have 25.000 pcs. available

We are offering this product in our webshops at very fair prices for everyone.

We kindly ask that you purchase for you and your family only. We will reject purchase orders for large quantities.

We will be donating steril antiseptic gel to hospitals in Switzerland and Romania. We will also make donations to people in need.

Thank you for your understanding.

Research collaboration with University of Bologna

Research collaboration with University of Bologna

We are proud to announce that we have signed a research collaboration with the University of Bologna and their Department of Veterinary Medical Sciences for a range of studies for the effect of cannabidiol (CBD) in animals.

Professor Roberto Chiocchetti DVM, PhD. and his team from Department of Veterinary Medical Science are very well respected for their extensive veterinary medical science research and have published more than 60 publications to date.

Formula Swiss AG was founded in 2013 and now produce more than one hundred different CBD products in Switzerland for clients in 38 countries. Formula Swiss will support the research teams with products, formulations, knowledge and research funding.

With the collaboration between Professor Roberto Chiocchetti´s team of experts researchers and Formula Swiss in Switzerland, we will gain valuable knowledge about the reactions and results of cannabidiol (CBD) in animals to the benefit of not just the animals, but everyone interested in learning more about the effect of cannabinoids for animals.

The first research study on cats is publicly available for free

The first study "Localization of cannabinoid and cannabinoid related receptors in the cat gastrointestinal tract" is available here.

Cannabinoid receptors showed a wide distribution in the feline gastrointestinal tract layers. Although not yet confirmed/supported by functional evidences, the present research might represent an anatomical substrate potentially useful to support, in feline species, the therapeutic use of cannabinoids during gastrointestinal inflammatory diseases.

Many more studies on CBD for animals planned

The next study will be CBD for horses followed by several other studies of the effect of CBD for different animals.

We hope you are safe

We hope you are safe

Dear clients,

We hope you, your family and friends are safe.

We have have been closely monitoring the ongoing COVID-19 virus situation develop from bad to worse over the past few weeks. In keeping with the guidelines from Swiss government authorities, we have taken several measures to avoid contributing to the spread of the infection within the company, as well as to avoid any production or delivery disruptions.

We can confirm that we remain fully operational during our business hours.

The Swiss government have decided to close all schools, stores and prohibit more than 5 people meeting at a time for now at least until April 4th. 

All Swiss borders are closed with immediate effect for all non-urgent or private visits to Switzerland for six months.

Internally, we have taken a number of measures, technically and logistically, to deal with the emerging challenges:

  • We have prepared our teams to work from home.
  • We have drastically scaled up the number of employees working from home.
  • Employees who feel unwell, or who have visited large gatherings or areas particularly affected, have been instructed to stay/work from home.
  • We have cancelled, until further notice, all non-essential travelling.
  • We have cancelled non-essential meetings and, where possible, replaced meetings with video-conferences.
  • We have cancelled, until further notice, all participation in non-essential meetings (internal as well as external) and gatherings.
  • We have put in place additional hygienic measures at our various office locations.

Many employees have to work from home due to the change in family situation, but everyone will be working 100% and our fulfilment team will stay intact and continue to send out thousands of orders every day.

UPS confirmed that they will continue to ship globally and deliver locally within the guaranteed delivery times in all areas including Italy.

Externally, we have sourced a large supply of biomass, filters, bottles, packaging (except for our graduated pipettes), printers, toner, paper etc. to prepare for a situation like this.

We hope to stay operational for as long as possible during the Corona-virus and until the crisis subsides.

Emergency kits will be available this week

Together with our friends in the pharmaceutical industry we are also producing more than 200.000 pcs. of medical graded hand sanitisers and 500.000 pcs. of disposable protection masks under our brand and GMP-license. Starting from this week, these emergency products will be sold at prices below market level and donated to hospitals and institutions in need.

We will keep you informed of developments on our side. 

We recommend anyone, who possible can, to stay inside for a couple of weeks with your loved ones. Focus on your body and mind. Try to boost your immune system with healthy food, plenty of sleep, CBD and supplements.

Kind regards,
All of us at Formula Swiss

Millions of British falsely believe CBD oil is illegal inside the UK, as found out in a new research

Millions of British falsely believe CBD oil is illegal inside the UK, as found out in a new research

The oil, stated to help promote sleep, ease chronic ache, and reduce strain and tension, is completely legal within the UK because it doesn’t incorporate THC - the psychoactive compound that makes you high.

Nonetheless, two thirds believe it is banned. And eight in 10 suppose the impact of taking the natural oil is similar to smoking hashish.

More than half also stated they would judge a mate or member of the family negatively in the event that they knew they took CBD. The research of two thousand adults, commissioned by a top rate CBD oil producer to rejoice the release of recent range of CBD oils, located greater than three quarters are confused by CBD. And 8 in 10 describe it - despite being totally legal - as ‘dodgy’.

As with most emerging industries, regulation is unfastened, which has caused a big deal of incorrect information and false impression surrounding CBD and tremendously lot of mis-selling.

Cannabidiol, better referred to as CBD, is a naturally occurring connection found inside the resinous flower of cannabis. While cannabis itself is an addictive drug, as soon as extracted from the plant, CBD is without a doubt a safe and non-addictive substance, with none of the side effects associated with hashish along with the sensation of being ‘high’. 

A study has additionally discovered CBD is most broadly utilized by women aged 45 to 60.

67 per cent quoted to have taken or thought about taking CBD oil. At the other end of the scale, those age 25 to 30 were least likely to use CBD, with only 21 per cent willing to trying it out.

As well as general confusion around CBD, researches additionally highlighted a lack of awareness about the oil and its connection to hashish.

Two thirds are mistakenly believing its use is banned in professional sports, which is not the case. There is increasing evidence that CBD may be used to effectively treat a number of medical afflictions, inclusive pain and anxiety, and also can assist with concentration, sleep, and muscle recovery after sports activities.

In the coming weeks we will be very busy harvesting and drying this years production of more than 100.000 organic hemp plants. It is a large operation that require a lot of resources and experience and the entire family will be involved.

We grow many different strains of hemp plants like V1, Cannatonic, Harlequin, Strawberry and a few proprietary strains - all with amazing and popular aromas and a strong durability.

The weather in Switzerland has been ideal for the hemp plants this season. Not too warm for the greenhouses and not too windy, moist or rainy for the plant outdoors. If nothing changes in the next few weeks, we expect 2019 to yield another record output.

CBD flowers will soon be available to wholesalers

In the months that follows, we will start to offer sale of flowers from our different strains from greenhouse and outdoor production to our wholesale partners by the kilogram starting with a minimum purchase order of 5 kilogram of vacuum-packed flowers with a reduced THC level of less than 0.2% making them compliant in Europe and most countries.

Many have requested to buy the flowers in our webshops as well, but right now we prefer to work with our strategic partners and wholesalers in more than 35 countries.

Keep in mind that shipping hemp flowers internationally is logistically very challenging, due to the physical resemblance with marijuana plants, and thus require a lot of documentation and paperwork to pass through customs in a timely manner. It is currently not feasible to offer this service to our end customers.

CBD vaporiser and CBD vape oil products available

CBD vaporiser and CBD vape oil products available

Our R&D team has worked on developing premium CBD vape products for more than a year. Today, we are very proud to finally present the final results to you.

Our new product line of organic CBD vape products consist of an innovative and high capacity CBD vaporiser with the latest technology to prevent over-heating and has a long battery time and premium CBD vape oils in nine unique, delicious flavours in concentrations from 100 to 500 mg of CBD. 

We are already working on more natural flavours and concentrations.

Natural CBD vape oils without THC

All our CBD vape oils are vegan and without THC, nicotine, tobacco, gluten, lactose, additives, tar, emollient, carbon monoxide, chlorinated paraffins and phthalate etc.

The fact that the THC has been removed in all our CBD vape oils make them legally available to more markets globally.

We have removed any trace of wax or any other ingredient that could have any potential harmful effect for humans making this a much better alternative to e-cigarettes.

CBD vape oil is quickly absorbed in the body

Vaping CBD oils means a faster absorption of the CBD through the lungs and directly into the bloodstream and ensures a high absorption rate in the body compared to topical or oral consumption of CBD oils.

For this reason our CBD vape oils are in lower concentrations that our CBD oils. We recommend everyone to start with a lower dosage of CBD and slowly increase the dosage over time, when the effect has been closely monitored.

Take CBD more conveniently 

Our CBD vape products are so convenient to use and made from the most popular flavours like menthol, strawberry, blueberry etc. All you need to do is click the filter of CBD into the vaporiser and you are ready to vape CBD.

24 new CBD oils available

24 new CBD oils available

Today, we are launching a new product line of CBD oils diluted with MCT oils.

The new CBD oils will be available in natural, orange, strawberry or vanilla flavors and in concentrations from 300 to 2.500 mg.

The four unique flavors are produced by adding natural terpenes from organic Swiss hemp to the MCT oil and without using any artificial ingredients. The result is a smooth and delicious taste completely without any throat burn.

The products are available in our webshop.

Why choose MCT oil as a carrier for CBD oils?

MCT stands for ‘medium chain triglycerides’ and acts as a carrier for CBD so more of the beneficial cannabinoid ends up reaching the bloodstream. Blending CBD and MCT oil increases the bioavailability of CBD.

MCT helps CBD completely avoid the first pass metabolism process. This allows more CBD to reach the bloodstream. Because CBD and other cannabinoids are fat soluble, they are most effective when taken with saturated fats like MCT oils.

Conclusion, by using MCT oil in our CBD products it allows a larger concentration of the CBD to be absorbed into the bloodstream and begin acting quickly for a faster effect.

Payment by invoice available now

Payment by invoice available now

Many of you have asked, if we could implement the option to pay with invoice in our webshop.

We previously disabled it, as we spent too much time on administration and following up on late payments and occasionally dealt with fake orders.

Now we have found a solution for this and invoice payment has been implemented, tested and made available for all customers in Switzerland.

To deal with fraud and fake orders we work with a Swiss credit rating company to check all orders, before they are being shipped. Customers that fail the credit or address check will still be able to order, if they pay with debit or credit card, but will not be offered the option to pay with invoice.

We have fully outsourced the control of the invoice payments to a local partner in Switzerland, so please make sure you pay the invoices in time and address any questions about reminder fees directly to them. All the information is available on the invoices.
