Colgate Palmolive show contempt for their customers

I’ve noticed how the containers of deodorant have got smaller and smaller over the years.

To the right is a promotional picture for Palmolive Soft and Gentle which I found on the web.

It’s bad enough that they charge so much for tiny amounts but now they’ve started selling it in containers that have already been squeezed! Here’s a photos I took of their product.

Nobody would buy a pre squeezed tube of toothepaste so why do we buy pre squeezed deoderant containers?

Will Colgate sell toothpaste in tubes like this next?

It seems to me that Colgate Palmolive must have absolute contempt for their customers to sell their gunk in little rip off containers like this.  The Palmolive anti-perspirant above contains just 50ml of gunk and sells for around 97p in one large supermarket.

To put that in context that’s £19.40 per litre!

Petrol sells for only £1.00 per litre!

  1. This is exactly the same container – the photo of the container on the top right is just the front view, while the photo of the container on the middle left is the side view. The container hasn’t been ‘squeezed’ – it’s just a different view of the same bottle – that is shaped that way for easy holding while applying.

  2. Yeh, it’s the same container. That’s the point. In the promo they show it front on so you can’t see how tiny the container really is. I do realise that it has not been physically squeezed but it has been redesigned to make it slimmer and thereby hold even less gunk.
    I don’t see why you think that almost flattening it makes it easier hold either. Personally I can hold a cylinder just as well as a flattened cylinder.
    Do you work for Colgate Palmolive?
