As a non-single guy who has relinquished control over the buying of bathroom products, I am regularly confused when confronted with a new selection of unfamiliar bottles. For example, I was just faced with Imperial Leather’s “SkinKind hydrate cotton extract & oat milk BODY WASH hypoallergenic”. At least here the keywords are capitalised, but I’m pretty sure it’s often the case that marketing jargon entirely replaces the keywords (Shampoo, conditioner and body wash or shower gel) that I’m seeking.
Perhaps the soap companies could spare a little space on the lids for a simple icon that quickly explains the intended use to the uninterested user.
In these quick examples below, the first icon is a shampoo and conditioner, while the second is a body wash.
Please and thank you.
