Is seems to be the right thread to ask this,..
Whats up with this product? I mean why is it SO expensive?

Amazing product, nice smell & flavor. Think they it is so expensive due to the brand!

They use no chemicals, just pure ingredients.

Yeah but $7 (regular price) for lip balm???

When they first came out, their prices were reasonable. I actually was a buyer of the salve years ago. When i started buying it 7 years ago, it was 2.99 for a 3oz tin. Now it is about 8.99. Today it is half off - $4.50. Better price, but now i have found a cheaper alternative.

Yes, their stuff smells good but their prices are now crazy high - way out of my price range.

When it used to be $2.99 7 years ago (read: pre-inflation), it would hardly go on sale. As JCP has found the hard way, we Americans thrive on sales. So now it's $8.99, and $4.49 on-sale. Seems about right.
Still, these are Sears' prices. One can do better at CVS or Rite-Aid during sales.

Before I started working at FatWallet, I worked for a company that makes the packaging for this stuff... and I can tell that even the packaging is difficult to make & isn't cheap. The molded plastic tubes and flexo printed labels aren't bad, but there are some unusual challenges when it comes to making those tins.
