In the market there are products that are made special for men, although there are products that are for women but also used by men. In this article we limited our topic to men body care products. We asked as many as 513 male respondents of all ages and locations throughout Indonesia. Through this survey we wanted to deliver some of the top or most preferred brands of men body care products along with some other details.
There are obviously types of body care products, and we categorized them into ten types. Of those ten types of body care product for men, we asked our respondents which one(s) they use.
