Labelling, are we gullible??
Just showered using some lynx rise, which contains lime extract (i can believe that) and himalayan minerals. Are we to believe that lynx have a mining operation out in Nepal extracting 'minerals' or does it just contain minerals that can also be found in the Himalayas so therefore we'll say they're Himalayan.Posted 8 years ago
Also bought some Vanilla and black orchid washing gel the other day, My pops has bred and grown orchids for many years and assures me the black orchid is at best mythical.
My question is, what is the law on this labelling? And what have other folk bought that contains dubious things?BigButSlimmerBlokeMember
Someone gets paid to write the marketing pap that goes on the side of things. Their pay goes on the price you pay. If you don't want to pay people to write that pap, you can buy Asda's Own Unbranded shower gel. Then you get to smell like someone who showers with Asda's Own Unbranded Shower Gel and people wll know and respect you for being the kind of person with an inquisitive mind who seeks iron out the petty foibles in our market-dominated society. Or that you're some kind of unemployed gadgie with nothing to do but read the marketing pap on the side of bottles and doesn't miind smelling like a school swimming pool.Posted 8 years agoandrewhMember

Not sure how they would cope if they ever found out about fairy cakes or shepherd's pie.AndyPMember

the law is, that as long as birds are gullible enough to buy something which contains 'pentapeptides' for 'microdermabrasion', then they deserve everything they get.
Lynx marketing is twofold. 1) advert with hot chicks – to get blokes to buy it. 2) mention of aromas/contents – to get lasses to buy it for their blokes in the hope that it will make them start caring about their personal upkeep.andrewhMember
Arbroath Smokies have to come from Arbroath, Melton-Mowbray pork-pies from Melton-Mowbray, Champagne from Champagne, Parma Ham, Stilton cheese etc, etc.
It would appear that south American beef full of growth hormones and anti-biotics can be labled as British as long as the sausage itself was made in Britain from that south American beef. Likewise, a Sainsbury's branch down in Devon sold 'local' beef from a farm 5 miles away. The cows were driven all the way to a slaughter-house in Doncaster and then back to Devon so they could be labled and sold as 'local.'
1) Don't beleive the labels.
2) Just a couple of reasons why I don't eat meat.
