You may have heard that Millenials don’t like bar soap. They don’t buy bar soap, they don’t like it, You could even say they hate it. If hard soap supplies shrink in the bath department then the millenials should be blamed and shamed.
Is the intention to pit one generation against the next? Do the manufacturers want to artificially drive up the price of detergent? A company with a huge market share like Unilever could benefit sharply with a price increase of even pennies.
All of these findings are pure myth and of course are designed to sway thinking. Simply visit a local farmers market or craft fair and you will find one if not several soap makers. This is actual soap and not detergent. Some people avoid soap thinking it’s the real thing when what their skin is having a reation to is actually detergent. Label reading and education is the best consumer protection available!
If you are a “millenial” then I would like to hear from you in the comments about your like or dislike of bar soap. If you are a “boomer” I would like to hear you weigh in on this. I promise I won’t respond with, “okay boomer” please be polite commenters! 🙂 If you identify as genX or genY then 3y3 would like to hear from you as well.
Let’s end this barsoap Millenial Myth together. 😉
Thank you for visiting 3y3wonder and please visit a local soapmaker near you!
