What's The Difference You Ask?

  • There's a lot going on right now with people questioning certain whether cosmetics are authentic or not. Make-up such as; eyebrow pencils, eyebrow cosmetics, cosmetic preparations for eyelashes, lipsticks, make-up preparations, make-up, make-up powder, make-up removing preparations, mascara, nail varnish/nail polish can always be duplicated by chemists. Leaving the question; is it fake if it's the exact same thing only in a different package?

  • Patents don’t prevent copycats
\n
One of the main reasons cosmetic companies think to get a patent is so they can prevent their competition from copying their formulas. Well, the truth is in the cosmetic industry, patents do not have this effect. It is really a simple matter for a cosmetic chemist to start from an existing formula and recreate something that works just as well. If you have a patent, it’s an even easier task. Substituting out one ingredient for another is not difficult.

  • Making something that does not violate the patent but works just as well is even easier and saves tens of thousands of dollars.

A cosmetic formulation is never completely unique and new to the world. A consumer could never tell a difference.  This is why these "non-authentic" brands are able to offer the same product at such a reduced price. They are even able to reproduce the packaging!...well close, not perfect but almost.
