Ah that must be due to the tariffs and shipping charges to get it into the US.

And the people in Spain obviously didn't sell it at a loss...A healthy profit for someone! (Standard pharmaceutical mark up)

I was curious because the bottles were exaxctly the same, one is labelled topical gel and the other a shampoo. They are the same in every aspect, so I assume they are the same.

Ah there is your difference. A "topical gel" is obviously worth a lot more the a mere shampoo.

I looked more carefully, they are both shampoo. I read the ingredientes of the gel: lauralsulfato is a soap. OK, the premis still stands. 3 dollars overseas and 16 bucks US.

Be mad at people who keep supporting IP laws. IP laws keep competition out. Which keeps prices high.
