A guide on how to distinguish between authentic Meditoxin and fake
This is a guide for of the people who never use an authentic Meditoxin before, you will learn how to check the authenticity of the product just by look at it. In fact, we can distinguish the authenticity of Meditoxin from the outer packaging.
Check point one: Expiration date and production batch number
The expiration date and the production batch number on the outer packaging of the authentic Meditoxin, they are print as a stamp alike fonts, like continuous, all the font size are the same. While the fake one looks like they are printing one by one, the font looks intermittent, font size looks a little different. You also have to look at the thickness of the packaging font, the authentic one came with a thicker font. This is the first check point.
Check point two: Temperature label
In addition, from this comparison picture below, we can see that the temperature label on the upper right corner of the genuine box seems to be relatively light. While the temperature label on the side of the fake box in a deeper color.
Check point three: Bottom labeling
For the authentic Meditoxin, the first line on the bottom label should be showing the production batch number, the second line should be showing the expiration date. Now when we looking at the fake one, it shows production date on the first line and expiration date on the second line.
Check point four: Traceability source code
There will be a source code mark on one side of the package. The genuine two-dimensional trace source code is relatively small and marked with four lines. While the fake Meditoxin two-dimensional code is relatively large, and the characters next to it are only three lines.
Check point five: Look at the form of the botulinum toxin appears on the bottom of the bottle
Many people don’t know how to distinguish between authentic Meditoxin powder and fake one. In fact, the production technology of Meditoxin type A botulinum toxin is very similar to Botox in the United States. The purified botulinum has a foggy sensation, and the powder rarely surrounds the bottom.
The fake meditoxin came with a lot of the white freeze-dried powder on the bottom of the bottle, most of the these fakes are made in China, so technology can’t make it transparent and foggy.
Check point six: Vacuum packaging
The authentic Meditoxin is made by vacuum packaging, you can feel the obvious negative pressure in the bottle after the needle is inserted. While the fake one does not necessarily make people feel the negative pressure after the needle is inserted.
Check point seven: Color laser label
You can tell whether the Meditoxin is authentic or fake by looking at the bottle label. The authentic bottle has laser anti-counterfeiting label, while fake products usually do not have laser anti-counterfeiting, and the color reflective effect of the bottle cannot be seen. However, it should be noted that not all fakes do not have a laser anti-counterfeiting mark. Some of the new fakes may have lasers printed on the bottle. Another brand of the same manufactory called Innotox could be an alternative choice, since there is no fake ones made at the moment due to the technology of pre-mixed botulinum toxin.
