Questions from Readers #3

Should we pay more for green/organic cosmetics than conventional cosmetics?

The price of an organic cosmetic (or paint!) should be reasonable.  It will never be dirt-cheap, since organic farming produces less yield than conventional farming, driving the price of ingredients a bit higher.  However, we proved that you can produce cosmetics (which are marked up really high) for a reasonable price.  An organic eyeshadow should be under $20.00; in fact, all of the products should be under $20.00.  If it's higher it could mean that the company may be taking advantage of people's desire to purchase green products.
