International pharmaceutical company IBSA Derma, together with exclusive UK and Ireland distributor HA-Derma, has unveiled a new hologram label on Profhilo products.
Following reports of counterfeit products, the company explains that the new label will provide practitioners with assurance that the Profhilo products are original.
The hologram sticker will be placed on all Profhilo and Profhilo Body boxes in efforts to safeguard the quality, traceability and authenticity of Profhilo.
The holograms will feature both IBSA and HA-Derma logos with text ‘Supplied for UK & Ireland’ and a recorded letters/numbers sequence, notes the company.
Iveta Vinkler, director of HA-Derma, said, “At HA-Derma, we are committed to providing quality products with proven safety and efficacy. Counterfeit products can put patients at significant risk, and to help combat this issue, we have created an original hologram label for all packaging across our injectable Profhilo portfolio. We are confident the new hologram will help provide additional reassurance to our customers that the Profhilo products being distributed in the UK & Ireland are original.”
Practitioners should not purchase Profhilo
without the hologram on the box from September 1 onwards. The new sticker is
applied at the HA-Derma warehouse in the UK.
