A Bath Fitting and Shampoo & Conditioner cost $7.95 in Australia last year, according to data from Australia’s Productivity Commission.
The price was up from $6.40 in 2012.
The commission also found that Australian consumers spent an average of $8.20 on shampoo and conditioners in 2016.
“Our data suggests that the average cost of bath products has increased over the past 12 months and this trend will continue,” said commission chair Julie Manners.
“We hope this information will help consumers make informed choices when purchasing bath and body care products.”
A new shampoo and body wash was also added to the list of products that cost less in Australia in December.
The new shampoo costs $9.40 per bottle.

There are also DIY bath bombs on Etsy, Etsy.com and eBay.
You can also buy a “bath bomb maker” from the local hardware store.
For those of you who don’t want to spend a lot of money, DIY bath fitters can be used for home renovations, too, according to a recent article in The New York Times.
“The most common reason people give for making their own bath bombs is to keep their homes cleaner,” says Dr. John O’Hara, director of the Center for Healthy Home Improvement at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
“It can be a cost-effective alternative to costly and hazardous plumbing or electricity repair.”
