Sales have also been indirectly impacted by the reality TV craze.
“Shows like Extreme Makeover or The Swan have sparked people’s desire to improve their physical appearance, but not everyone is willing to undergo surgery or Botox shots to do it,” explained Lenka Contreras, vice president, Kline’s Consumer Products Practice.
