  • Description


    COMMENTS (SOF) FROM TWO CHEMISTS ON THE STATE OF THE COSMETIC BUSINESS. THERE ARE ALSO SHOTS OF EMPTY, NEAR-EMPTY AND FULL SHELVES IN THEIR SHOPS.



    TRANSCRIPT



    "I DON'T THINK IT'S SANCTIONS THAT HAVE AFFECTED THEM SO VERY MUCH; I THINK IT'S IMPORT CONTROL THAT WE HAVE. AND WE STILL HAVE SUFFICIENT SUPPLIES OF GOODS TO SUPPLY THE CUSTOMERS WITH. THERE WON'T BE THE SAME AMOUNT OF VARIETY AND COLOUR SHADES AND LIPSTICK SHADES AND EYEBROW MAKE-UP, BUT I THINK WE HAVE SUFFICIENT AT THE MOMENT TO SATISFY MOST OF THE PEOPLE."



    TRANSCRIPT



    "YES, QUITE A LOT OF THINGS COULD BE MANUFACTURED - FOR EXAMPLE, HAND CREAMS, SKIN TONICS, FACIAL FRESHNERS AND THE ONLY THINGS THAT MIGHT BE RATHER DIFFICULT TO MANUFACTURE (ARE) POWDERS, FOR EXAMPLE, OR DIFFERENT BLENDS OF FACE CREAMS - THE FOUNDATION CREAMS - BUT APPARENTLY THERE IS SOMEBODY IN BULAWAYO WHO IS IN FACT DOING THAT. IT'S ACTUALLY A CHEMIST IN BULAWAYO WHO IS MANUFACTURING LIPSTICKS - HE MANUFACTURES HIS OWN LIPSTICKS, HIS OWN FOUNDATIONS AND ALL THAT. IF HE CAN DO IT, SO CAN ALL OF US."
