Ulta accused of reselling used beauty products

Posted: Updated:

KHQ.COM - Beauty superstore Ulta is facing accusations of unsanitary business practices. A woman claiming to be a former employee took to twitter saying the company re-packages and re-sells used makeup.

She also posted images to her account, showing what she says is returned merchandise which is then cleaned and put back on the shelves.
 
Other twitter users are also saying they've witnessed similar things at their own local Ulta stores.

The company denies any repackaging allegations.

Ulta released a statement to NBC's Today Show saying, "We do not allow the resale of used or damaged products. Our store associates are trained to catalogue and then properly dispose of any used or damaged items. If associates have concerns that this or any Ulta Beauty policy is not being followed, they can anonymously report it through our third-party hotline.
