What Does the Red Dot on Johnson Baby Soap Indicate?

The red dot on the Johnson baby soap reflects that it contains parts of animals, birds, insects, and fish. 

To keep the consumers informed whether the product is vegetarian or contains some animals, fish, birds, and insects. So the red and brown on the food, cosmetics, and more products have been made mandatory. Hence, it will keep you informed about the ingredients used to make a product.

So, the Department of Consumer Affairs on 16th June 2014 issued a notification which says, “Every package containing soap, shampoos, toothpaste, and other cosmetics and toiletries shall bear. At the top of its principal display panel, a red or as the case may be, brown dot for products of non-vegetarian origin and green dot products of vegetarian origin”. 

Also, in a country like India, where even looking at non-vegetarian food is not less than a crime, this initiative is important and also has been appreciated by the various Animal-welfare Organisations. 

Above all, because most of the population in India is vegetarian. It is important for the consumer to know everything about their products. This decision also reflects the importance of the “Right to Information”.
