It doesn't appear that anyone here has posted anything which refers to an official. Can you quote something specific?
I use it and other brands also, because a Fly Tyer suggested it. I don't know the other brand names, but I don't think the cosmetic industry is being slighted in any way. It's kind of like saying, "Scotch Tape" or "Kleenex". Everyone gets it.
Also, someone just created a discussion topic about "being specific" and since people do expect something specific, it is helpful to just name a thing.
If anyone knows of another brand, I will happily buy it. It don't make no nevermind to me.
Four posts in this thread "specifically" name Sally Hanson's... including yours.
And that's no different than any other thread on any other web forum when this subject comes up.
