    prices are set by owners GUESS at what you will however reluctantly,pay.

    when that is determined,they have the design people work on packaging,bottling that grabs girly girls attention walking down the aisle, she stops tries some,out with the charge card,a sampler bottle available,,promos & coupons go along with the purchase.

    advertising costs are accounted for in the sale price.

    True to a point. If you consider adverting as part of the packaging (and almost all in the cosmetics industry consider adverts as a major aspect of packaging) then even more true. There are a few high end products that use rare and expensive ingredients (such as LaPrairie s skin caviar) but over all most cosmetics draw from the same list of raw materials.

    Well... they buy the packaging in bulk, so it only costs some cents. l used to work in logistics for Tom Ford. Even very sturdy reusable packaging shouldn't cost more than a dollar unless it's custom or handmade leatherwork or something.

    Packaging and advertising can add a lot to the price.
