So where does the name ‘Black Friday’ come from? Using the adjective ‘black’ usually means it’s a pretty bad day. The earliest use of the phrase Black Friday was in 1869. This was when plummeting gold prices caused a market crash in the USA. But the first mention of Black Friday as we know it for the mother of all shopping sprees, was in the 1950s. Philadelphia traffic police coined the term to describe the traffic jams and intense crowding of the retail stores.
It was always believed that Black Friday officially opened the Christmas shopping season in the USA. But not only traffic police dreaded the day. The ratio of sales personnel-to-customers added to the pandemonium. Consequently, stressed sales people would take the day off to extend their Thanksgiving holiday weekend.

NeoStrata has been researching topical skincare ingredients for more than 40 years. They’ve patented some of the best-known technologies, such as Glycolic Acid.
