題名:世界で化粧品を使っている女性は何人?
テレビ、インターネット、電車の車内広告などで、化粧品の宣伝をたくさん見かけます。いたるところで、美しい女優さんが「これを使えば、あなたも美人に」と微笑みかけています。素直な女性たちは、そんな広告を信じて化粧品を買うのです。「世界の化粧品市場」というイラストグラフでは、2011年から2021年までの販売量や販売予測を見ることができます。この市場は2021年には344.4億ドル(3兆9千億円)になる見込みです。このイラストグラフは、非常に分かりやすく、化粧品市場の大きさを示しています。なぜ私はこの情報を探したのでしょうか。じつは2011年に突然、なぜ私はこんなに化粧品を使っているんだろう?と疑問に感じ、それから使用を減らしてきたのです。ある基礎化粧品に夢中になっていたとき、もしこれを使わなくなったら、それこそ大変なことになると思い込んでいました。でも、それって何かおかしくないでしょうか。その過度に依存している状況に、そこで初めてゾッとしたんです。誰かを非難しているわけじゃありませんし、化粧品の広告に怒っているわけでもありません。化粧品業界が本当の美しさを表現するための解決策を提示してくれるなら、それは本当に素晴らしいことです。なぜ女性と化粧品を切り離すことができないのか、本当の理由を考えるべきでしょう。大量生産と大量消費はすでに時代遅れなのですから。
