Vida Divina is being actively marketed across Ecuador without an appropriate license from the National Agency for Health Regulation, Control and Surveillance (ARCSA).
This has prompted ARCSA to issue a regulatory warning against Vida Divina, urging Ecuadorians to consider “the safety of the population”.
ARCSA claims Vida Divina’s products are being marketed in Ecuador as having “therapeutic effects”.
According to ARCSA, this means Vida Divina’s products must be licensed by their the agency’s Sanitary Notification division.
Failure to obtain a license is a criminal offence.
The manufacturing, marketing and promotion of products without Sanitary Registration or Sanitary Notification endorsed by a sanitary institution is a crime punishable by law.
Offenders face up to a year in prison and additional fines.
At the time of publication Alexa name fellow South American countries Colombia, Guatemala and El Salvador among top sources of traffic to the Vida Divina website.
Whether the company has obtained appropriate regulatory licensing (if required) in either of these countries is unclear.
