2. Why the colors of the products shown on the website differs from those in reality?
We make effort to ensure that each color presented on our website is a true reflection of the one in the bottles. A perfect reflection however is not always possible – at least because of different settings of monitor brightness.

Colors can change their hue when they are exposed to the UV rays for a long time (too long in the sun). For this reason we recommend to keep your UV Hybrids away from sun, UV lamp and not on the windowsill.

Semilac guarantees the highest quality of products, which is confirmed by numerous awards and certificates. We do not recommend using our products with products from other companies.
