Absolute Perfection Pigments
These permanent makeup pigments are bought directly from the manufacturer in the USA and are the highest quality available.
Pigmenting colours can vary from supplier to supplier, but mainly consist of glycerine, isopropyl and distilled water. The pigment colours themselves are composed of titanium oxide, iron oxide, chromates and sulphates. This composition varies depending on the shade of colour.
Iron oxides have been one of the most used colouring agents in cosmetics for many years.
Iron is the most stable and common of all the elements, it is non-toxic and safe.
Pigments are all hypo-allergenic, non-toxic and safe to use in the skin.
There is a very low risk of an allergic reaction, which is why it is so useful for people who have allergies to conventional makeup.
If someone does have a reaction, it is usually due to the preservative or other additives added to the base of the colour, NOT the iron oxide itself.
Semi permanent makeup pigments are different from the traditional tattoo inks. The pigment has less chance of migration in the skin than traditional inks.
As the skin loses collagen and elasticity over time, the skin will start to ‘sag’
As the pigments fade over time and a colour boost is required, you have the opportunity of your colour boost acting as a mini facelift by for example by making the tails on the brows slightly higher.
If traditional inks were used you would risk of having semi permanent colour highlighting the sagging of the brow area.
The reason we don’t offer a ‘winged’ affect or ‘tails’ on eyeliner is for a similar reason. The risk of the colour migrating is higher due to the skin around the eye being extremely thin and delicate, so as the skin loses its elasticity in this area, the flicks becomes droopy and can only be removed totally by laser which can be expensive and painful.
