With in-built SECURITY SEAL
IGB Tamper Evident packaging provides vital protection against shoplifting and counterfeiting, is made of plastic-free cardboard and suitable for standard packaging lines.
Perfumes and Cosmetics are high-value items: the combination of value, size and easy accessibility makes them attractive targets for shoplifting and counterfeiting
THE COST OF COUNTERFEIT PRODUCTS
The cosmetics and personal care industry is estimated to have lost $5.5 billion in sales from counterfeit products in 2020 (Statista).
Social media is responsible for above 50% of fake cosmetic sales (Cosmetics Business).
The annual growth of counterfeit cosmetics has been estimated at 264% (Authena).
PUBLIC HEALTH ISSUES
Government and industry studies and testing have discovered that some of the ingredients that make up counterfeit cosmetics and fragrances are downright dangerous (FBI).
Beauty products, cosmetics and perfumes are among the most stolen goods (Bamfield, J A N (2015) Shopping and Crime, London: Palgrave Macmillan).
Box wrapping is the most common product protection in the cosmetic industry.
This solution causes huge costs related to materials, the use
of specific machinery and low factory OEE.
PLASTIC POLLUTION AND CARBON FOOTPRINT
The need to prevent counterfeiting and shoplifting pushes many companies to use protective wrapping. However, this involves the use of huge quantities of plastic and energy-intensive packaging processes.
THE TAMPER EVIDENT LUXURY BOX IS THE EFFECTIVE AND
Equipped with a plastic-free seal, made from cardboard, IGB’s Tamper Evident Luxury Box guarantees visible confirmation that a product has not been tampered with: when the seal is broken, a high-vis tag shows up, making it clear that the box has been opened.
IGB’s Tamper Evident Luxury Box complies with the stringent ISO 21976:2018 standard.
An intact and irreversible seal guarantees that the product is the one originally packed by the manufacturer, protecting your business and customers’ health from counterfeiting and shoplifting.
This is the only way to guarantee protection along the entire supply chain: from the manufacturer,
to the distributor and to the consumer.
Cheap tamper evident stickers can be peeled-off and covered with new stickers: they are reversible.
The Food & Drugs Administration (FDA) regarding Tamper Evident packaging, states:
“Tape seals relying on an adhesive to bond them to the package are not capable of meeting the TRP requirements because they can be removed and reapplied with no visible evidence of entry.
The IGB seal, instead, is part of the box and must be torn off to open the box: it is therefore IRREVERSIBLE and SAFE
