Nem todos os óleos são óleos


Explanation:
Poderia ser "nem todos óleos são iguais", num português correto. No entanto, como se trata de jargão chamariz de publicidade, tem que ficar com algo que chame a atenção, dái que "nem todos os óleos são óleos", é mais intrigante para chamar a atenção do consumidor.
