Product Elasticity/ Price Elasticity
Price elasticity for example if price of diamond falls too much people will stop buying it, on the other hand, if the price of rice goes up too much people will stop buying rice. In case of Olive oil interestingly it works both ways. For instance as a moisturizing oil if the price is too high people will not buy it. But as food oil if the price is too low people will question its quality and would wonder if it is healthy enough to eat. In Bangladesh it is mostly used as a moisturizing product and the profit margin in cosmetics is better than in food sector. Maximum sales are in skin care.
