This is absolutely true. Some companies sell the exact same products, in fancy or generic packaging, so they can capture the high end and low end of the market. Sometimes the only difference is some very slight cosmetic change to differentiate them, but some don't even bother with that, due to the expense of the change. But otherwise perform exactly the same.That's something that so many believe to be not true. They think a manufacturer would make a bunch of different "versions" of an item to sell at different price points, with different quality levels, etc but from a manufacturing standpoint, it makes very little sense. No one wants to source different raw materials, different setups, having to track the different batches, etc.
Great example of that is PS21 carnuba paste wax for cars. It is sold at Porsche, BMW and Jaguar car dealership parts counters for like $50.
The manufacturer makes the exact same wax, in the same container, but marked S100 and sold at motorcycle shops for $15 to $20.
Its a great product, and even better at $15
