Cosmetics

The modern cosmetic market sells to working and non working,men in constuction jobs,business executives and students.Ask some people if they have makeup in their bathrooms and they will say no,but careful examination of that same bathroom  reveals deodorants,anti perspirants,skin lotion,shampoo,suntan lotions,and shaving materials.Beauty products have changed from luxury commodities to vital needs of everyday life.There are many promises in advertisement.Labels are not always helpful and disappointments are common.Confusion about cosmetics is common.

Are more expensive products really better than cheap ones?For some people the less expensive cosmetics may work as well or better than the expensive ones.The ingredients in some expensive cosmetics may actually be worth little more than the ingredients in the less expensive ones.In some cases,the formulas are identical whether the price is high or low.The extra cost of the expensive brands often comes from elaborate packaging,advertising,and celebrity endorsements.It’s true that some of the expensive cosmetics are more elegant in that they feel smoother,smell better,and come in a wider choice of colors.But the formulas for many cosmetics are similar in content;in some cases the same product is even sold under different names.Even when made aware of this fact,many people still choose the more expensive product .If an item is supposed to do a fantastic job,it must be priced accordingly.For example,cream that sells for fifty cents will not sell as well or be considered as miraculous as a cream that sells for forty dollars.

In general,the cosmetic industry thrives by presenting an image of beauty and then capitalizing on the public’s fears about living up to that ideal.People are made more anxious and critical of their appearance.Fears of aging are frequently exploited.Creams,lotions,and moisturisers promise to make the skin look younger.Hair dyes also exploit the fear of appearing old.The beauty industry sometimes creates needs for problems not previously recognized as problems.
