Do we need to have our bath and body products good enough to eat?

There is a trend it seens that everything must be good enough to eat. Now I for one like having a lip gloss that doesn't taste like wax but then it doesn't stay on long.

The biggest brand that I have seen lately is Jessica Simpsoms Dessest line. And you really can eat it. I have watch young ladies in the store trying everything and making faces at some of the products but you really can eat them. Now my biggest question is Why?

Why do I need a body butter that when I am done putting it on licking my fingers when I'm done? There is no way I would but thats just the point why do I need to have that choice available to me?

There is a line in Bath and Body Works that is along the same lines but guess what favor that is? Thats right Chocolate. Its the Tutti Dolci line . Their Lip Gloss is maddenly wonderful favor of Creme Brulee what that it, it taste like chocolate to me. But I don't think I need anything else to be tasting that good.

That bring up something that happen that was kinda funny to me that really ties into my whole thought here.

I was in the bank and I was chatting with someone and I gave her a sample of my body butter in Strawberry . When back to the bank and this same young lady ask me "Is it edible"? I had to stop and think for a minute due to the fact I sell natural products. I told her no and then call the woman who creates the line of body butter and I just had to ask her Is the Strawberry body butter Edible?

First words out of her mouth and we know what she be liking to do..Which gave us the giggles but I found out that even thou its all natural is still best for your body and not eating it.

See? What was the first thing that cross our minds? Why do you have to bring it out into the stores as well? I listen to others give me the same reaction and I think thats a very natural one, But I still don't think there should be a line of any type body product that you can eat it off your fingers. Am I wrong?
