The most pressing issue for cosmetic companies is that of counterfeit products circulating around the market. Fake cosmetic products can be as harmful as fake pharma products and can contain a lot of toxic substances like lead, arsenic and cyanide that will have adverse effects on body. Because of low prices and the fake identical label of trustworthy brands on them, customers buy these cosmetics without thinking twice and get duped.

Crypto tags have two parts to them, open and protected. While the open part is available to the all public the protected tag is hidden by a scratch able layer that can only be referred to after buying the product. These layers of protection make sure that customers are buying the original product.
