Skin Academy introduces: the paraben-free, intensively protective and caring line for a long-term color retention of tattoos.
40% of the population worldwide in the age category of 18 – 35 years has a tattoo. The number of tattoo shops has almost tripled in the last ten years.
I recently had my first tattoo done. I had wanted this for a long time and when my father was in the hospital with a life-threatening illness, I took this step. And I have never regretted it. My tattoo is for me a personal monument, a memory and of great significance. That is why proper care of the newly applied tattoo is essential, as well as during the skin’s recovery period.
When you have a tattoo put on you often get the advice to use Vaseline, at least an ointment or cream that contains no alcohol or other irritants. On the Dutch market there is actually not much choice in a good cream, while this is very important. With the INK’D TATTOO CARE line, SKINACADEMY offers three targeted products so that your tattoo remains beautiful for as long as possible.
Composed with natural oils.
The composition of the SKINACADEMY Tattoo Care line contains coconut oil as the main ingredient. (excluding INK’D Hydrating Serum), Shea Butter and Vitamin E.
Coconut oil has an intensive nourishing and conditioning effect and naturally has antibacterial properties. Shea butter hydrates the skin to the depth, keeps the skin supple and soothes irritations. Vitamin E protects the skin against harmful external influences and prevents premature skin aging. But in any case it is important that all three products nourish, hydrate and condition the skin and help prevent fading of the tattoo.
The SKINACADEMY INK’D line consists of the following three products:
SKINACADEMY INK’D Hydrating serum
This paraben-free Hydrating Serum contains Sacha Inchi Oil. This natural oil, derived from the seeds of the South American Sacha Inchi shrub, has the highest omega-3 fatty acid content of all plant oils. This special oil is therefore ideal for the care and color retention of tattoos. In addition to shea butter and vitamin E, the formula also contains intensively nourishing and caring ingredients such as glycerin, lecithin, bisabolol, vitamin C and seaweed extract. The serum nourishes, nourishes and protects the skin with tattoos and keeps it intense in terms of color for a long time. The serum has a light creamy texture, feels wonderfully soft and smells nice and fresh.
SKINACADEMY INK’D Protecting Daily Moisturizer SPF 15
Just like the serum, this moisturizing cream smells wonderfully fresh and gives a very soft skin feeling. This daily caregiver with SPF 15 offers daily protection against UVA and UVB radiation thanks to a sun factor 15. The rich paraben-free cream contains intensive care ingredients such as shea butter, coconut oil, vitamin E, Sacha Inchi oil, panthenol, bisabolol and allantoin. The combination of Tulsi extracts (holy Basil) green algae and milk thistle extract conditions and protects the tattoo and intensifies its color.
SKINACADEMY INK’D Nourishing Body Oil
The paraben-free Nourishing Body Oil ensures a daily rich hydration and nutrition of the tattoo. This intensive care and protective body oil contains a rich mix of natural oils of sunflower, coconut and Sacha Inchi in combination with vitamins C and E.
