Yes, you are right and I guess that as a salesperson I should have never
admitted that a product is expensive.  That is actually a relative term as
you frequently have pointed out to the histonet community.  You can certainly
synthisize some glycerin and distill some alcohol and save yourself a bunch
of money.  Othewise a high quality glycerin sells on the open market for
about $50.00 US per gallon.   That is the component that makes a product such
as this on relatively expensive.
