FRAGRANCES

& COSMETICS

THE PROBLEM

7.8% of annual sales in the personal care sector is lost due to counterfeiting

According to the OECD, in 2016 the international counterfeit makeup trade was estimated to be worth $5.4 billion. Today it is still increasing

Only in Europe, the counterfeiting of perfumes and cosmetics causes every year an annual turnover loss of about 4.7 billion euros

THE RISKS

Illegal makeups, fragrances and skincare products:

Are not tested, and might contain unapproved dangerous toxins and stabilisers causing skin rashes, asthma, sinus problems and more

Negatively influence the brand name and reputation of legal producers

Result in lower tax collection, job losses and minor investments in R&D

THE SOLUTION

We created a secure platform to univocally tag, track, and instantaneously authenticate perfumes and cosmetics

OUR PRODUCT TAG
Our patent pending NFC tag leverages encrypted tamper-proof blockchain technology to track each single item from production to product opening and features refilling protection and anti-peeling.
Its style can be customized for a perfect integration with your label, package or bottle design.
A TAP OF A SMARTPHONE INSTANTANEOUS CONNECTION
Our app or a direct NFC connection allows consumers to check the authenticity of each single purchase they are about to make. A simple tap grants instant access to product history, certifications and intended applications. Faster and safer than any solution based on QR code or image recognition.
