Breaking news: Mecca added to 'Crossed Off' list for 2019!
In October last year we formally reached out to Mecca CEO, Jo Horgan asking them to remove the 'Send nudes' Frank Body lip tint from their shelves.

We have attempted to contact Ms Horgan via a number of avenues, each being met with silence. It is for this reason we are adding Mecca to our 'Crossed Off' list for 2019.

Indoctrinating women to embody the dominant masculine sexual fantasy
An Australian owned skin care company has smeared its name by embodying a persona of an abusive partner to sell their brand. Frank Body has created a society in which women have become the object of desire to please the patriarchal male fantasy. Body scrub becomes an innuendo for sexual abuse, when this physical object becomes a vocalised male, named Frank, whereas women become nameless only to be referred to as “babe” becoming less than this physical object.Read more
