And the Black Cloud Consumed the Tub (video)

I'm a fan of Vancouver, BC based Pich Posch. I've blogged about them here and here. And, I'm a fan with good reason. This cool indie business makes good by selling products that are well formulated, healthier than most and cheerily bright.

Sometimes, this cheeriness doesn't serve Pich Posch well. Despite this um, little set-back in the video below, I'm still a fan of Pisch Posch. But, might I humbly suggest a different color (maybe black mica?) or maybe just less of it for the future formulations of this product?

Tiger Tiger
is a blend of Licorice and Creamsickle. According to the hang tag that came nicely affixed (in an orange ribbon, natch), it's impressive ingredient formulation includes normal bath fizzy stuff (citric acid and sodium bicarbonate) and also epsom salts, sea salt, sweet almond oil, and jojoba oil. All this skin-loving gunk makes for a happily moisturized body upon exiting the tub.

But .... as I alluded to above, not all was well in the land of Tiger Tiger BathTime - unless, of course, you like bathing in murky blackness.

Watch the video and then, before you think negative judgmental thoughts about Pich Posch, mentally review YOUR product line. What product do YOU sell that requires an explanation, or doesn't work quite the way you want it to, or generates actual customer complaints.? Use this experiment as a call to action to improve your own formulations and your own product line.
