I'm not a chemist, i'm a business person. I am curious if any of you have ever been able to deconstruct a product and replicate it. Im aware that the ability to replicate a product would be difficult if not impossible considering the process and ingredients. Im simply curious as to the possibility of completing a formula that is in the same ballpark. And even further, to put in layman's terms, within the same row (pretty darn close to).
This question came to my mind after doing some research, picking a product and then seeing that the first choice over $100 was a La Mer product ($300 for a serum). Obviously La Mer is able to charge this much because they have the brand name to do so aside from their quality products.
