    HeHe, I just love it when companies do this:

    It markets itself as an all-natural, eco-friendly skin care line that is safe for young girls’ sensitive skin.
    ALL NATURAL ????

    What does that mean exactly ??

    Snake venom is "all natural"

    Poison ivy is "all natural"

    Arsenic is "all natural"

    About 100 species of mushrooms / fungi are poisonous to humans, and they are "all naturaL"
    The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing

    I like the 'markets itself' line. Then why pull it out of stores where everyone can see it?

    absolutely true on both posts. the 'all natural' claim tends hook people in unless one really stops to think critically about what a useless term it really is.
    I can't remember where I read it, but years ago Tupperware gave a go at putting its products in the stores, but had to abandon the effort as it turned out to be an epic failure.

    I'm sure tupperwre caught flack from it's affiliates for doing so, which I get if tupperware didn't do away with affiliates.
