LOOKS LIKE A LOT OF US HAVE GIVEN UP ON DEODORANT
Written by Ballzer on July 28, 2020
Apparently, social distancing is seeing more of us eating ice cream, but less of us are using deodorant. Makes sense to us. If we’re staying home eating ice cream, we’re not too worried about if we smell. Unilever reports “as people spent more time in their homes, we saw growth in home consumption of foods, ice cream and tea. It also meant that consumers had fewer personal care occasions from going to work or socializing, and we saw a decline in our personal care business, except for hygiene products.”
It’s not all bad news for the company, “Sales of ice cream for consumption in-home increased by 15% in the first half and by 26% in the second quarter, significantly offsetting the declines in out-of-home channels,” Unilever stated. “Magnum and Ben and Jerry’s continued to grow strongly.”
mmmm… ice cream!
