How do you see using personal hygienic products from a company that also makes household items?
Do you feel the world is more concerned with marketing rather than the health of the people?
I have no problems using personal hygiene items from a company that also makes household cleaning products. A lot of the stuff is basically the same anyway, based on detergent. That doesn't mean I'd pour toilet cleaner over myself in the shower though!
There's definitely a bigger concern with marketing. The chemicals placed in many of these products are known to harmful, but that won't stop companies from making them. The main thing is appealing to the customer in as economical a way as possible. Many of the scientists involved with making scented cleaning products for appliances, counter-tops, etc. also make products for skin care.
Ultimately natural is the best route for hygiene, but companies are going to make what appeals to people and since people don't mind chemicals that help them freshen up, that's what's made. I'm not against companies doing that, but for me, I use natural products simply because my skin reacts better to them.
I have no problem using personal products from a company that also makes household cleaning products because I assume that they keep the processes separate.
I prefer natural products anyway so go for these whenever possible.
Yes I think businesses are more concerned with the almighty dollar rather than the health of their customers. The biggest culprit? Big Pharma (drug companies). They put out products knowing full well that they may have a class-action lawsuit down the road which they gladly settle for chump change compared to the massive amount of money they have already made off their victims.
