Deceiving Product Labeling

I am so annoyed with product labels! You look the at front of a product for information about the product, but when you turn it around, the ingredients tell a different story. Here is the front of a bottle of Dove Body Wash for sensitive skin. It says "unscented". 

Here is the ingredient list.

Clearly labeled on the last line you can see fragrance listed. It is just like buying a snack at the grocery store that says "0 grams trans fat" right on the front of it. That leads you to believe there is no trans fat in the snack. Don't be fooled! Manufacturers can legally say there is no trans fat in their product if there is less than 0.5 grams of trans fat per serving. So deceiving! Read the ingredient list, not the nutritional content, and you will see hydrogenated oil listed! It infuriates me! Why do we have to examine a product so carefully before we buy it?
