[Since when are baby products considered suitable subject matter for “Fashion & Style”? From the March 28 The New York Times Fashion & Style section]
I think a lot of the personal care product (over)pricing issues (and ethical issues) are stemming from the cosmetic industry’s massive marketing campaigns. It’s not about beauty, it’s about keeping our bodies, and our babies’ bodies, clean & comfortable. If we got off the anti-aging, Youth Rules bandwagon, the industry would have a lot less emotional control over moms’ heart (and purse)strings.
