87 products- 1 company



Have you ever gone to the supermarket and while trying to decide which brand of shampoo or laundry detergent you were going to buy, you became overwhelmed by the number of brands you had to choose from?  Chances are, when you were debating between buying X, Y or Z, all three were made by the same corporation.

Using Procter & Gamble as an example, let's see how many products come from just 1 company:

Beauty & Grooming:

Shampoos/Soaps- Aussie, Camay,  Head & Shoulders, Herbal Essences, Ivory, Natural Instincts, Olay, Pantene, Safeguard, Sebastian Professional, Vidal Sassoon, Zest

Salon Shampoos- Clairol Professionals, Fekkai, Graham Webb, Halo, Nioxin, Sebastian Professional, SK-II, Valentino, Wella


FragrancesChristina Aguilera Perfumes, Dolce & Gabbana, Dunhill, Escada. Gucci, Hugo Boss, Lacoste, Naomi Campbell, Puma

Cosmetics & Skincare- Braun, CoverGirl, DDF, Gillette- Fusion, Mach 3, Venus,etc.., MaxFactor, Old Spice, Secret

Misc.- Bounty, Cascade, Charmin, Comet, Dawn,  Duracell,  Joy,  Luvs, Mr. Clean, Pampers, Puffs, Swiffer


~This list was not to demonstrate that Proctor & Gamble is a bad company or they so something wrong..  The goal is to demonstrate that when you're at the supermarket and debating between buying Pampers & Luvs,  or between Cheer & Tide, eventually your money goes to the same place.
