Do Women Have To Pay More Than Men For The Same Item?

by Pam on April 22, 2010

While I was sitting in a waiting room the other day waiting for an appointment, I browsed through the April 2010 copy of Chatelaine magazine.  I found an article about how women’s products are generally more expensive than men’s products.  The article was specifically talking about hygiene products such as deodorant, body wash, shaving cream, etc.

The author of the article stated that for the most part, women are willing to spend more on hygiene products so stores jack up the prices accordingly.  The author’s suggestion to women is to check out the men’s products before making their purchases.  If they can find an unscented men’s product that is the equivalent to the higher priced women’s product, then they should go ahead and buy the men’s version.

I had never really paid much attention to the difference in price between men’s and women’s hygiene products before.  I will definitely take this author’s advice the next time I need to purchase any type of hygiene products.

Have you ever noticed this trend of men’s products being cheaper than women’s products?
