FAQ

What is Henna?


Henna (Lawsomia inermis) is a plant that temporarily dyes the skin until the skin fully exfoliates. The leaves of the plant are dried, pulvurised, and mixed with lemon juice, essential oils and sugar to create henna paste. Although completely safe and natural, those with G6PD deficiency should not use henna.




How long does Henna & Jagua last?


Henna lasts on average 1-2 weeks of strong color and 1-2 weeks of faded color. Skin type, placement, & aftercare are all factors that can effect the duration of your temporary tattoo.




What is Jagua?


Jagua is made from the jagua fruit (Genipa Americana) that is grown in South America. The juice of the fruit is extracted, concentrated, then thickened to turn into jagua gel. When jagua gel is applied to the skin, it stains the skin a blue/black color.




What's the Henna aftercare?


Henna will dry within in the first hour. Leave the paste on 4-6 hours, or as long as you can. Don't pick at the paste, it will crack and flake off on its own. Avoid water on the area for at least 12 hours or longer. Stain will be a bright orange color the first day and will darken to a brown/red color over the next few days.




What's the Jagua aftercare?
