Actual Ads: More Animal Protein!

This blog has moved!!! Check out the all new Beauty Brains.

Ahh, how times change.

Today, amid fears of Mad Cow Disease and Bird Flu, the mere HINT that a product contains any animal by products is even to send even the zealous fan of cosmetics shrieking into the night. But not so back in the 1970s, no sir! Back then we embraced our animal by products. Case in point, this Clairol Condition ad from 1974. Read the fine print carefully - "It contains more animal protein than any leading conditioner." Now there's a claim you don't see anymore!
