The secret to identifying genuine and fake cosmetics
The cosmetic market today has many products labeled as genuine to deceive buyers. Many newcomers to the cosmetics business have difficulty distinguishing the real from the fake during the import phase.
Prestigious cosmetic products are often faked but the price is not smooth at all. Blog Sapo will share some tips for you to import cosmetics without being confused.
How to identify real cosmetics – fake to find the source of genuine cosmetics.
1. Distinguishing real and fake cosmetics by sense
You test products such as lipstick, eyeshadow, blush, etc. by dabbing a little on the skin under your hand.
If it is a real product, you will feel comfortable, with a light and long-lasting fragrance, the coverage of the powder is smooth and glossy. If it is a fake, you will feel the skin feels heavy, rough, has a strong scent. Because Fake Fragrance Oil has a lot of alcohol, the strong diffused smell causes headaches.
2. Look at the form to identify real and fake cosmetics
You can see many indistinct presentation patterns prominently on counterfeit packaging. For example, the words are too small or the font is not standard by the manufacturer.
There are also fake cosmetics with overly vibrant colors. You need to know the product you intend to import, counterfeit products often have variable product names such as: Lamcome instead of Lancome, Kenzzo instead of Kenzo, Lokasta instead of Lacoste…
The words on the real goods are always short and clear. The packaging is usually sturdy made from good quality cardboard or paper. Unlike genuine cosmetics, counterfeit products often have sloppy packaging. On some fake lipstick boxes, there is usually a hole that doesn’t know what to do.
Fake cosmetics often have shabby packaging
In addition, fake cosmetic products are very easy to fly. You try rubbing 2 fingers together to get some oil and then rub it on the shell to see if the color fades easily.
The fake box also has strong reflective properties, when taken with a phone it will be quite bright.
3. Based on barcodes to identify real and fake cosmetics
In addition to helping to identify product origin, barcodes also help you distinguish between real and fake products. Therefore, each cosmetic product has its own barcode number. If there is no product, you should not import it because it is very easy to be a fake.
You only need to see the first 3 numbers to know the origin. For example, the first 3 digits of Vietnam barcode is 893. You can refer to the following list of barcodes:
Once you know where it comes from, to know if it’s real or fake, you take the sum of the even numbers by 3 plus the sum of the odd numbers, minus the 13th digit. Then you take the number you just calculated and add the 13th number. If this number ends in 0, it is genuine, if the tail of this sum is not 0, then it is definitely a fake.
For example, let’s try to calculate if this barcode of Vietnam is real
A=8+3+6+2+0+0=19 B=9+4+0+0+1+7=21 C=19 + 21*3 =82 D= 82+8=80 The tail of D is number 0, so I can confirm this is the real thing
Many of you wonder why they have faked the product and then why not also fake the barcode. They will never dare to fake the real barcode because then the genuine company will be sued as a fake company right away for copying. So the barcode is always correct, cannot be faked.
