Ashton and Parsons - and the crazy prices on ebay and elsewhere

Hi there!

Right: so I know that Ashton and Parsons teething powder works - that is not in question. However, I have been horrified at the the price I've had to pay for it recently - £8.99 in my local chemist.

So I thought I would blog about it. And Alliance Pharmaceuticals got back to me to say that there is an RRP and anyone charging above that is basically 'at it'.

Full details here

I am very interested to hear from anyone who has seen it being sold at ridiculous prices. It gets me quite cross that people are profiteering from desperate mothers of very noisy babies!

So don't pay inflated price?youre not compelled to pay that
They are £5.35Boots
I don't see the issue other than paying over odds for product,which is your problem not retailer

Weren't Ashton & Parsons the company that had supply-chain problems, after a fire in one of their manufacturing locations?

Anyway, the teething powder appears to be in stock at the Co-op Pharmacy, online.
