Car registration Plates and Product Serialization: An Analogy

When the first motor vehicles hit the dusty roads, there was no need to identify any of them, anyone knew the lucky owner of the “motor-horse”, but suddenly after few years the number of vehicles reached the 3 and 4 digits and the necessity to identify each of them bacame a priority.
France was the first country to introduce the registration plates followed by Germany in 1896. The Netherlands was the first country to introduce a nationally registered licence plate in 1898. All remaining countries followed, with U.S since 1903 and UK plates from 1 January 1904.

Since the beginning of the XX century until today we can clearly identify any kind of vehicle by its plate, link the vehicle to the owner and its address.Old Car PlateIn case of scheduled maintenance or recalls the owners can be reached easily and in case of theft the stolen vehicle cannot be used; not to mention police bills shipped directly to the vehicle owner.

We at Validactor are convinced that any product should be registered and clearly identified and have (and clearly display) its “registration plate”, no matter the size or the type of product. Moreover, we think that the customers should be able to verify the characteristics of the products first hand including any specific flag related to its correct distribution, legit commercialisation and in case of recalls the customer should be informed on the fly.

With serialised products, manufacturers can easily contact the purchasers and inform of any possible issue with that specific product.

Stolen products cannot be sold normally – if stolen – automatically they are automatically marked as such. Who is going to sell products that displays a graphic code that can be verified by any customer and that will report the product as stolen?
Will we be happy of buy and drive a stolen car? Surely not, so why we should feel comfortable of buying stolen or expired products.
Validactor serialization process is the most powerful anti-counterfeiting measure possible today, the possibility for customers to verify the originality is what really makes the difference.

Stay tuned on Validactor as the range of features we are introducing are going to change the way customers and manufacturers interacts with the products. It is a win-win scenario, be part of it.

Fake makeups: Market invasion

Be aware as this carries risks that no one can afford.
Bargain-hunters beware: the cheap designer makeup you are buying this Christmas could be toxic.
Beauty items are loaded with some of the most undesirable ingredients you want to put on your face, near your eyes and mouth. Boying look-a-like products at a fraction of the price could cost you much more than the real one. While these knock-offs look almost identical to the real deal, they have a dirty secret: many contain lead, paint-stripper - and even faeces.
The toxic ingredients have left users with chemical burns, severe rashes and at risk of serious long-term health problems.

Meanwhile, the counterfeit industry is booming with sellers exploiting millennials' online shopping habits and their unprecedented demand for big-brand cosmetics.stream_img
Can you spot the real one?

Fraudsters - taking advantage of advancements in production techniques - have flooded the market with fakes which look remarkably similar to the legitimate products.

While these cheap imitations may look like the real deal, hidden inside are a cocktail of potentially damaging ingredients which can have dire health consequences.
Tests, commissioned by ITV News, found that one of our fake MAC lipsticks contained dangerously high levels of lead.
"You wouldn't expect to find lead in lipstick; we analysed it and found it to be significantly higher than the guidelines for lead," Dr Steve Barton, from Kingston University London, said.
"It's a neurotoxin so it can have various effects like menstrual difficulties, hormonal problems so my advice would be certainly not to be putting it on the face and certainly not to be putting it on the lips with this level of lead in it."

Other goods, tested by police and trading standards, have been found to contain:

- Mercury
- Cyanide
- Arsenic
- Paint-stripper
- Faeces

The products are often contaminated with harmful substances during production in unsanitary working conditions.
Anjali Mahto, a dermatologist with the British Skin Foundation, has seen a marked increase in the number of patients suffering reactions triggered by fake makeup.

So, Be Aware! Do not buy fakes, always look for the "Validactor enabled" seal or buy only in certified point os sales.
