assorted cosmetics and tools

 

Overview

The beauty business covers a wide range of products that includes cosmetics, perfume, skin cleaners, cosmeceuticals, etc. There is also a wide range of price points from the more mainstream products sold by mass merchandisers and in drug stores to the more expensive brands in department stores and exclusive boutiques. This guide includes a brief history as well as a short write up of the current market (as of the date of this guide). It is not comprehensive or exhaustive, but rather meant as a starting point for research in this area.
