    Manufacturers don't want low costing soaps marketed to men next to the higher priced soaps targeted for women.
    Just dropping a link:

    Personal care products

    Gendered price disparities in personal care products are more apparent than in personal care services and across other industries. By and large, the price disparities in personal care products are notably higher than in other industries and cost women around 13 percent more than men. This disparity is especially significant considering women purchase these products more regularly than men. Prices for hair products, followed by razors, cost the most for women - typically costing women almost 50 percent more than men.

    Dead on. It's amazing how much women will pay for stuff.

I knew Irish Spring was “stronger” than other soaps, but I never thought it was for the exclusive use of males.

    Given the PC move toward a genderless society, I was surprised at this new soap segregation. Perhaps the female soaps needed a safe space where they could be protected from being harassed or dominated by male soaps.
    Hands down the dumbest thread I've ever seen on this forum.

    I'm actually ashamed to be the same species as you right now.

    I agree and let's not get started on wrinkle cream... I have seen some more than 100.00 for a tiny jar.
