Interview Debra Trampe in New York Times: "Beauty product ads make women feel ugly"

06 January 2011

Advertisements for products intended to enhance women's beauty can make women actually feel worse about themselves. This valuable marketing knowledge was discovered by researchers Debra Trampe, Diederik Stapel and Frans Siero. Their upcoming publication triggered the New York Times to publish an interview with research leader Debra Trampe of the FEB.
