Authentication Solutions for
Commercial Product Companies

Authentix commercial brand authentication programs enable brand owners to mitigate risks of counterfeit products entering the market while increasing revenue growth and competitive advantage. We currently serve major commercial brand industries including pharmaceutical, spirits and premium drinks, agrochemical, health and beauty, fast moving consumer goods, tobacco, and more.

Our solutions help our customers focus on supply chain data that leads to the right brand protection features that detect diversion, dilution, adulteration, and counterfeiting. By implementing these features, you can identify and address problem areas and avoid massive disruption in their distribution pipeline. This proactive approach strengthens market transparency, returns diverted revenue, and decreases liability.



Work with our team of experts to select the types of inks, applications and printing methods for different packaging to meet your anti-counterfeiting needs. We mark all branded products to detect diversion, dilution, adulteration and counterfeiting. We leverage the following authentication features on products to protect your brand and the consumer:

        • Overt: Visible to the naked eye, allowing consumers, inspectors and government agencies to easily identify the authenticity of the package. Technologies commonly employed for overt security include:
          • Optically-variable inks
          • Pearlescent inks
          • Gold and silver inks
          • Anti-tampering technologies (tamper-evident closures and labels)
          • Optical security technologies (holographic seals and labels)
        • Covert: Utilize an image or substrate feature invisible to the naked eye, often printed with covert security inks on primary and/or secondary packaging. These covert features can only be detected using a proprietary detector and are highly secure. Examples of covert security features include:
          • Heat-activated inks
          • Color-revealing inks
          • Light-activated inks
          • Fugitive inks
          • Inks or materials with specialized taggants
          • UV-activated inks
        • Forensic Level: Utilize a molecular level marker confirmed through specialized lab equipment specifically tuned for ppb detection levels. In some cases, molecular level markers can be detected using a disposable field analyzer. The use of forensic markers allows companies to pursue legal actions, conduct covert private investigations, and cooperate with law enforcement agencies.
