I find Johnson and Johnson cotton buds to be priced on the higher side. In India, it costs around 1.2 USD for 75 sticks. 1.2 USD is not a big deal, but it definitely is priced high considering the raw materials plastic and cotton is not as expensive.

I started looking at alternatives and i find brands like "Nuby Cotton Swabs" and "Pigeon Cotton swabs" which cost only like 16% of what Johnson & Johnson costs. Its just a rip off that J & J costs so much. I know their other products are unmatched, but cotton buds is not.
