Edits: SK-II History Section[edit]

Hi, understand that you previously made edits to the history section of the SK-II page. There's actually a couple of points that require correction to make it more accurate. Would like to discuss the following points with you

1) SK-II as a brand was not developed in the 1970s, it was launched in Dec 1980. so it might be more accurate say their “story" began in the 1970s. Reference: and

2) It was not a monk that made the observation but scientists, according to numerous sources as well as the source on P&G's website. Ref: Reference:

3) Would be good if there was an additional line to expound on "Pitera". Proposed Line: "Pitera is a bio-ingredient that contains the same similar composition of vitamins, amino acids and organic acids as the skin’s Natural Moisturizing Factors." (Reference:

4) To make the sentence more complete, can there be a mention to talk about SK-II being sold in 13 different markets (Ref: — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dvgho81 (talkcontribs) 05:35, 24 July 2018 (UTC)

@Dvgho81: I'll look, but I can't promise it will be soon - I am madly busy both at work and on Wikipedia. (When I do little edits, it's because I don't have time or access to the books for the big stuff.) Also please note that third-party sources are preferred over the brand's own website. So the monk vs. scientist thing will depend on what I find. Yngvadottir (talk) 15:47, 24 July 2018 (UTC)
@Yngvadottir: Thank you. If it helps, I also chanced upon this reference. Dvgho81 (talk) 02:05, 25 July 2018 (UTC)
@Yngvadottir: Hi, can I check if you had the time to look at the page :) Dvgho81 (talk) 01:47, 08 Aug 2018 (UTC)
No, I haven't I'm afraid. Yngvadottir (talk) 05:42, 8 August 2018 (UTC)
@Dvgho81: I finally made time, and have reported the bases for my edit at Talk:SK-II. I'm afraid it's not changed as much as you wanted. Yngvadottir (talk) 13:17, 17 August 2018 (UTC)

Alan Sabrosky[edit]

  • Do we have a source for the fact/dates that he served as an enlisted man, then mustered out, when to college, got a PhD. It's an impressive thing to do, but a secondary source would be nice.E.M.Gregory (talk) 11:36, 9 August 2018 (UTC)
No comment on whether serving in the military then attending college and earning two master's degrees and a PhD was extraordinary, though I agree it's impressive :-) Docbrosk1941 has been offering primary sources for his military record, as you know, plus one bio that a newspaper added above a letter to the editor (in my talk page archives, IIRC). The degrees are sourced in my rewrite to a directory of annual doctorates in the field, as you will have seen. Yngvadottir (talk) 12:33, 9 August 2018 (UTC)
We need SECONDARY sources for a WLP. also, the doctorate sources the doctorate, not the life bofore an dafter receiving the PhD.E.M.Gregory (talk) 13:28, 12 August 2018 (UTC)
We can and should have bibliographic information on where publications worthy of mention can be found, and links where feasible, for the reader's benefit. (That's why ISBNs for the subject's books.) Also, perhaps you can't see that directory entry? As I say, it also lists his previous degrees. Yngvadottir (talk) 13:15, 13 August 2018 (UTC)
@E.M.Gregory: It occurs to me that I assumed you had looked closely at the rewrite and therefore knew that it uses neither the primary sources nor the newspaper note. I answered the question "Do we have sources" assuming you were asking because you saw none in the article. The short answer is "No, not that I've felt comfortable using." Which is why those specifics/dates are not in the rewrite. Perhaps that helps. Yngvadottir (talk) 16:07, 13 August 2018 (UTC)
I looked carefully at the rewrite, and wrote up a long memo on its sourcing flaws on the talk page.E.M.Gregory (talk) 16:09, 13 August 2018 (UTC)
I saw and responded, hence I assumed you knew it does not include the primary sources I mentioned. Yngvadottir (talk) 16:14, 13 August 2018 (UTC)
