How Come Aftershave Nor Shampoo Bottles Have Tamper-Resistant Seals?

by Anura Guruge

It had never really registered with I. I would guess the same is true with YOU. Have you ever noticed (or cared) that most of our beauty product bottles have no tamper-proof seals. Go check if you don’t believe I.

It suddenly struck me yesterday. Done another major shop at Walmart as we are wont to do. I happened to buy a bottle of hot sauce and another bottle of (cheap) aftershave because I like to have a few different bottles at the ready. Later that day ….

Trying to open the hot sauce bottle was a struggle. Two SEALS. Kind of overkill, but I won’t complain.

Aftershave bottle. NOTHING. Nada. Just twist and open.

Then I got thinking. In the crazy world we live in today. I could, unbeknownst, be splashing ANYTHING on my face. YIKES. Not funny. Kind of scary.

Of course I understand that adding tamper-resistance will increase the cost and thus the price. But, but, but …

I thought after the Tylenol tampering case in 1982 there were LAWS. Obviously NOT.

We need to think about this. SERIOUSLY.

Yes, I worried about writing this post. Hhmmmm!

But, I can’t be the first that noticed. Maybe the FIRST that CARED and was willing to write about it.

This is not gun control. This should be easy. I am going to start asking folks about this. I might send this post to my two (dear and trusted) U.S. Senators.

You Won’t Believe The ‘Rude’ Names Of The ‘Hot Sauces’ Available On Amazon.

Click to ENLARGE. I blurred out one word since there are words that I refuse to use. SMILE. My blog, my standards. SMILE.

A picture for the first bottle shown above (yes, with the first word blurred) turned up on my Facebook timeline. It intrigued me because I have been helping a good friend that just bought a hot sauce company. We have been playing around with provocative names BUT I could never be this crude. I thought it was a joke. But, to make sure did a quick Google. Wow. It is real. Made in Australia which would explain the name. But, here was the kicker. It was available from Amazon. Here is the link. I kid you not.

Then, as is Amazon’s wont, they showed me other recommendations. That is where I found these. Had to share them with you. What do YOU think?
