Note that the product is CETYL myristoleate and not CETLY.

Although there are oodles of references in English for this product that supposedly helps arthritis sufferers, I could find only one in French:

"Mercredi dernier, la commission américaine au Commerce (Federal Trade Commission - FTC) annonçait qu'un règlement en réparation avait été convenu avec trois entreprises et leurs responsables à qui elle reprochait d'avoir prêté, de manière trompeuse, aux produits annoncés des vertus sans fondement médical ou scientifique. Il s'agit du cetylmyristoleate (CMO), vendu pour soulager les douleurs arthritiques, et une infusion d'essiac, préparation végétale à laquelle on attribue de nombreuses propriétés médicinales dans le traitement du cancer. "

I guess it hasn't made its way to us yet...
