http://jamaicanblackcastoroil.com/ JBC are the distributers of Sunny Isle JBCO, and from what I have heard, they do not have the best reputation, at least with sisters over on hairlista.

Here's the Thread

One member spend $169 for a case of castor oil and only receive one bottle and other spend over $50 and got nothing. There are several members that their cards was charged but received nothing, or they ordered and paid for several bottles but received one bottle.

Wow, that's interesting to know. I ordered mine from Sams and had no trouble at all. I've never seen this other site before.

Sams 247 are not affliliated with JamaicanBlackCastorOil, sams use to distribute tropical isle brand jbco through them, but they had a falling out, so they moved their product to Sams.

I just go to a carribian store and buy it. They also sell coconut oil, and other interesting things, LOL.

I am new to board (as of minutes ago lol) but I had a similar experience with sunny isle. I ordered the rosemary but received the original which was a $3 difference. Three dollars isn't a big deal but I wanted what I was charged for and ordered . After many calls (no response) and an email that promised they would re-ship the correct item. Needless to say I had to refute the charge and never received what I ordered. And its a shame b/c I like the product but I don't want to chance it. I'll try Sams next go round!

I heard about all the 'horror' stories and was reluctant to order from sams in fact, they took a long time to respond to my email and that was a huge turn off so I spent a few dollars extra on shipping and bought it from Amazon...

Toya,
I ended up making my own rosemary jbco (those clowns at sunny isle never sent their version lol) what I did was add a few drops of rosemary essential oil to the original jbco and bam! My very own rosemary jbco...it takes the slight smoke smell away:D

That sucks :(

Here is where I have ordered my Tropic Isle JBCO from:

Amazon.com: Online Shopping for Electronics, Apparel, Computers, Books, DVDs & more (http://www.amazon.com)
The people I bought my lavender JBCO from on amazon accidentally sent me the wrong order at first. I emailed them and they corrected it within a few days. They let me keep what they sent me at first as well (4oz JBCO and Tropic Isle conditioner. So glad I won that shampoo in the drawing :D )

Number one online site - beautyofnewyork.com (http://www.beautyofnewyork.com)
No problem from them

One of the posters on hairlista said she found a fly in her oil :eek:

Stealing munny and putting dead flies in the oil....they need to be shut down.

I never had a problem with sunny isle jbco and or jamaicanblackcastoroil.com. As a matter of fact i called them and told them what you ladies are saying and they told me that they had supply issues with the previous manufacturer i guess that is tropic isle that is why they were not delivering the products in a timely manner. They assured me they have no supply issues anymore and that they ship next day

Well I'm glad you had a nice experience with them, I however still will not purchase from them.

Shipping is fine, but how do they explain dead bugs being in their jbco?

My order was def. not shipped next day! They didnt answer the emails and there was no number listed on the website. (Jamaicanblackcastoroil.com) I have two unopened bottles and when i finish im done with jbco.com. I hope were talking about the same place if not take back my bashing. lmao

well i will def say that sunny isles aka Jamaicanblackcastoroil.com did not ship the correct item...despite the sorry email from sunnyisle telling me i would get the item i ordered. [after i called at least 5 times and emailed twice] With my current job i work closely with warehouse personnel and I understand orders are entered incorrectly or shipped incorrectly BUT we make sure the customer receives what they ordered and will we ship it free and provide the customer with a tracking number of what they ordered if we made a mistake...and those fools at sunny isle did not do that...and its a shame b/c i really loved ther JBCO...but i will never order from them again. Just beware sis:D
