There’s something fishy-
about companies that put out “new” or “new and improved” products a couple times a year. Today Im talking about a couple of companies who’ve been around a long time and who are sold to the most people and used in markets that demand perfection. I’m telling you there never is any “new” product. I bet companies have a holding facility full of various items, altered versions of the same one product just waiting to be released after their last “new” version launched met their goal for revenue. Take Makeup for example.
Take L’Oreal. You can’t believe that the worlds largest cosmetics company a business over 100 years old has never hired one women in all that time who hasn’t thought up a liquid eye pencil that’s thick like a marker-so you can create thick lines (blackbuster). You can’t believe that no makeup artist in the world who’ve been making those thick lines on models eyelids for ever, never said -“hey why don’t we make this thin liquid marker..thick.”?? But if that is true and no one from the billion dollar makeup industry ever thought up the obvious -why the heck do we continue to keep them in business? Why do we excuse them for not creating the best to begin with especially when its an idea that a lot of kindergarten girls would think of? Or are we the consumers the dumb ones and companies know that and therefor can keep up their blatant stupidity (which is really a cover) concerning their business because we are just too desperate and lazy and needing to be led by the hand to bother with expecting perfection?
Another company I’m mentioning is Unilever. Remember the commercial with Heidi Klum that accuses all of US for treating the wrong end of our hair? Notice how the company comes out with this “new” line within a market they should be well educated about by now, and right in our face calls themselves and the knowledge they’ve possessed, this billion dollar giant of a company- stupid?And I’ve no idea why a “super model” would ever confess that they had no idea about hair care. And they get paid by companies that don’t require them to know anything about the product their selling.
Unilever sells to over 190 countries, to over 2 billion people, 400 different products along with hair and beauty care, under DOVE, FINESSE,NEXXUS,SUAVE, TRESSAME ,V05-along with-food, home care and oral care. They made over 69 billion in sales 2012. It introduced its Clear Scalp and Hair Beauty Therapy line to the USA after success in 42 other countries. Gina Boswell VP of Unilever NA unit called the Clear line “revolutionary.”
See how they try to distract from what they should have known as common sense and “duhhh” and label it revolutionary in hoping that that word will grab your “I gotta get this” thinking and you won’t catch their obvious idiocracy. These commercials state that the major hair and beauty lines we fund are actually and totally run by nitwits who are soo not qualified to be making beauty products for humans. it’s like Dr.s today-they give you combined chemicals fused in laboratories and made into pills, some are completely hypothesized some just replicas of what is readily available in nature…and these pills, created by people who believe they can improve on perfection- prescribe them to you and tell you there an AID not the REMEDY! Our Dr.s don’t even claim to be able to cure–and that’s their job! There’s alot of people selling things that are half-ass products and we accept it!
Now think about this- A global company who have their hand in a diverse group of countries where the beauty habits of people go back 1000s of years haven’t utilized that wisdom. This company making some of the top hair products used in salons and in the fashion industry for decades BELIEVED that the ends of your hair, the hair that dies, dries and is cut off-is where you are supposed to nourish so that the moisture will climb up the dead damaged hair shafts ends into your roots then scalp and magically stimulate the tissue in turn stimulate the blood supply that is responsible for nourishing your hair. That’s like saying you’ll absorb the nutrients of an apple by looking at it.
The second reason you shouldn’t buy from them is that out of the 252 manufacturing sites around the world -“more than half send no non- hazardous waste to landfills.” Unilever website…. Right there they TELL you that their products contain crap that isn’t even safe for the ground to consume.
For what reason would a company need to own many different brands of products that are used for the same thing? How can there be a great difference between Nexxus and Clear Scalp line? This tells you that they are all about the money and not about your needs. By adding one ingredient here that the other product doesn’t have and you can come up with endless ways to produce many variations off one product—totally unnecessary and stupid.
The other thing that throws up red flags is that beauty products are used by professionals who charge exorbitant amounts of money for their service. Now you’d hope that they know their trade inside and out. So they would know what is needed in products to work. Now are these huge companies just ignorant to their own business and hire unqualified specialists to create products with total disregarded to what professionals have requested in them?-like a hairstylist would know without doubt that putting products on ends of hair isn’t going to do anything for the health of the whole head from scalp to bottom. Or are these companies bottom line really titled-“we know how gullible consumers are so it doesn’t mater how full of toxic non effective crap we produce, you’ll buy and we’ve got the billions in revenue to prove it. We’re going to keep reinventing the same thing and leave it just short of working perfectly so we can come out and convince you we’ve finally got our crap together and promise this time it will work for you.”
But just like synthetic medicine, they’ll keep you coming back for more and keep you believing with empty promises that this time they’ve got what you need and they’ve made it right.
