Religious Beauty Companies

What Do You Think About Religious Beauty Products?

I've been running into a lot of religion-themed beauty lately. The majority of the products are ironic, or gently poke fun at holy convention, like this Lookin' Good For Jesus lip balm ($6). On the other end of the spectrum is Beauty 4 Ashes.

A self-professed "Christian company," B4A says that its products work because they're fresh and because "No matter a product's container or ingredients, it cannot surpass the power of God." It then goes on to bill itself as "God's will being manifested, His Word and favor in action — something made specifically for you, to meet your special need, as you remain obedient to His will."

A lot of beauty treatments have roots going back to religious traditions, but these two items are thoroughly modern. I'm curious: Do you like mixing faith with face cream, or do you go secular with this sort of thing?

The original Dr. Bronner wrote those "messages" on the bottles but as for religious beauty products, I don't think I would purposely purchase this unless I heard rave reviews.

As an atheist, I wouldn't go out specifically looking for religious beauty products... but this lipbalm is almost hilarious. I thought this product was a joke before a I read the "self-professed Christian company." I've used Dr. Bronner's bottled soaps before too and nothing sounds as whacked out as whoever wrote on those bottles. I imagine some guy who looks like Charles Manson wearing a banana-leaf skirt typing out the labels for Dr. Bronner products after being awake for a week straight on a manic episode. But I still use it. I don't really care that much. I mean, I find it a little silly, but it doesn't necessarily bother me.
