Added DiffLines:

* Parodied on ''Series/HorribleHistories'' with their ads for (usually genuine) historical products, such as Paule Revere's gunpowder toothpaste. This ads always contain the line "Here comes the science-y bit" as the voiceover explains whatever bizarre logic was behind the product.

Added DiffLines:

* Anything that says "non-GMO" without explaining ''what'' [=GMOs=] actually are. You're already eating many different types of GMO without even realizing it: broccoli, cauliflower, and kale are modifications to the original wild cabbage, ''Brassica oleracea''. You like corn on the cob? A few millennia ago, you would have been stuck with tiny cobs that wouldn't make much of a meal or even much of a side dish; selective breeding gave us the large cobs we know and love today. And your pet dog is ''definitely'' [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vhfCdF6qnyA a GMO]].

Added DiffLines:

** Similarly, anyone using the term "[[YouKeepUsingThatWord chemicals]]" to mean "[[AppealToNature anything that's artificial and therefore dangerous]]." The fact is, ''anything you could put in, on, or near your body is a chemical.'' No matter whether it's found in nature or made in a lab somewhere or both. The entire world we live in is made up of chemicals...in fact, ''your entire body'' is made up of chemicals!


* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Xi8ZYTFrb8 Anything that's touted as a way to remove "toxins" from your body]]. The term "toxin" is not a recognized term for any one substance or group of substances...and even things that are normally good for you can be toxic if you ingest too many of them. Also, your liver, lungs, intestines, and kidneys do a fine job of getting rid of undesirable substances in the body; they normally don't need any outside assistance. (And on the occasions that they ''do,'' such as dialysis for kidney failure, or diuretics for edema or ascites, ''your doctor'' will let you know.)

Added DiffLines:

* Micellar "technology". There's nothing fancy or "technological" about it, [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Micelle micelles]] are how detergents and soaps work. Basically, you're paying for a glorified soap-and-water solution.


** Parodied in a ''Loading Ready Run'' sketch where the extra oxygen was being pushed as the selling point; the sciencey bit was just a guy in a labcoat calling this insane.

* [[https://youtu.be/ZX-Dmfh5En8 This]] British advert for Pretty Polly bras takes the concept up to eleven with men in white coats "experimenting" on women in underwear. "Is this made of ... microfibre?". One of the models (the "sex goddess") is daytime TV presenter Holly Willoughby.


The trope title comes from the lampshading in L'Oreal commercials. Ben Affleck did [[{{Japandering}} an ad in the UK]] that featured the line, "Here comes the SCIENCE!", {{Fark}} got hold of it and it went memetic. Many an {{MST}} has used the phrase to {{lampshade|hanging}} an ExpositionBomb of {{Technobabble}}.
