What ingredients make the expensive brands so expensive?

Just curious ........ all you ingredients gurus out there, why is it that some perfectly effective cosmetic brands are inexpensive and sold in drugstores, and other brands (whether effective or not) are horridly expensive and sold in higher end stores? What special ingredients make the expensive brands so expensive? When we buy a "high-end" brand, are we buying more expensive ingredients? more expensive manufacturing methods? (Monks perhaps?) more expensive packaging?
