Color print advertisement for Styron, the trade name for Styrenic plastics historically manufactured and sold by the Dow Chemical Company for a variety of consumer applications. The advertisement shows an illustration of a young woman applying lipstick, with a close-up of a compact mirror showing the reflection of an eye. The accompanying text describes the in-demand qualities of Styron, including its aesthetic appeal, durability and affordability. Smaller text notes that "war requirements still come first" for production of Styron and other plastics.
