How to find the batch code?

A batch code is an identification code assigned to batch of cosmetics. It may contain information such as manufacturers code, production date, etc.

Batch code is usually stamped or printed with dot-matrix printer. You can be confused with the catalog number of the product (Ref.) and EAN / UPC number (barcode), which also appear on the packaging, but these numbers are printed in a standard way. Batch codes can be distinguished because they are applied later to already printed packaging.

Select a brand to see instructions on how to look like for batch codes of the brand. Batch code is printed or stamped on the bottom of the product packaging.
