Hello. My name is Melaleuca Original and I'm Shinyee's shampoo. Doesn't my name sound sophisticated? Melaleuca. It actually means tea tree, just in its scientific name. See, this is what I'm expertized at. Using scientific names to replace common ones so that people will perceive me as professional and high in quality. Let me show you.


See, when I want to list 'water' as my ingredient, I don't just say 'water'. I say 'aqua'. Sounds more sophisticated don't you think? While most people probably knows what aqua actually is, I bet they don't know these:

Melaleuca Alternifolia (this I told you)
Triticum Vulgare
Helianthus Annuus
Citrus Grandis

Well?

Unless you're a chemist or scientist, you'll have a  hard time figuring it out. See? By listing down those ingredients in their scientific terms makes me seem smarter than you doesn't it? So now you'll have more confidence in using me.

Okay answers to those terms here, in their order:

Tea tree
Wheat
Sunflower
Grapefruit

Now I'm speaking your language huh? Bet now you'll be running off to get those ingredients and make your own shampoo instead of spending RM85 on me.


And meet my sibling, the body wash.

I'm the type who likes to do some 'light reading' in the toilet. Read: picks up whatever bottle I can reach and reads the tiny words behind. One fine day, I MADE THE DISCOVERY ABOVE MUAHAHAHA. Now I have the urge to read every shampoo's ingredient list and translate them into common language, never know what I might find hmmmm.


Anyhow, I learned some scientific terms from my hobby haven't I? Yay!


(The entire thing was not to be taken seriously, just my opinion in whole, that's how my mind works.)
