Vanity is still important among consumers, but not at the expense of the planet - at least that's retailers demonstrated in their votes for the top 10 personal care products when they examined the wealth of personal care products in the Showcase @ GMDC last month during GMDC's recent 2008 Health Beauty Wellness marketing conference, held last month in Phoenix.
