Why are your skincare products so expensive?

We all wonder what is behind the expensive price tags of those pricey skincare regimens being sold at department and beauty stores. While each product is different and contains different ingredients, there are a few key areas that quickly rack up the price of a product. Whether you are talking about a serum or face mask, it is important to understand what is inside your products!

White truffles boast of a high price tag due to their rarity, according to Shannon Dunn, Eco Beauty editor and “Green Your Routine” life-stylist and coach. They are found only in the wild, primarily in Northern Italy and for just one pound, you can expect to pay up to $10,000.

They are remarkable for aiding in hyperpigmentation, Dr. Green told INSIDER.

“Since their Vitamin C content is so high, they’re effective in fading dark spots. They are also composed of Vitamins B3, B6, and B12. These vitamins repair damaged skin and prevent dry and irritated skin,” Dr. Green said.

Plus, they help with reducing inflation and minimizing fine lines and wrinkles, she added, because of their fatty acid content. You can find white truffle in masks, eye creams, moisturizers, and serums.
