UK Bans Photoshopped Oil of Olay Ads

















I've been on a bit of a truth in advertising tear recently, and here is yet another story to get me fired up. 1960's supermodel Twiggy is part of a UK advertising campaign for Oil of Olay products. Well, as you can see from her ad above, she's had had some computer work done. I wish they would ban Photoshop junk like this here in the States.

It seems like the UK is doing everything right the US isn't! LOL!
Would you mind doing a short post on what shampoo/conditioner/lotion etc you use? I'm trying to hard to find safe chemical free products, but every time I find something it turns out to be bad, even if it's paraben-free!

Why so brand specific though when hundreds of ads promote false advertising through photoshop retouching.
