Would you wish to use a cream that also doesn't put your health at risk?

After a while choosing your perfect tattoo, also because the place on your body where it'll be best, the day comes when your idea will finally be captured forever on your skin.
A bit of nerves and a couple of hours of pain, not the maximum amount as you thought, and now it’s!!! You have already got that lovely tattoo that you simply have always wanted. But ... once the tattoo artist finishes his / her work, don't think that you simply have already reached the top of the road. You’re missing one among the foremost important parts….. A nasty healing, a consequence of a nasty care of your tattoo will destroy all the illusion, effort, pain and money that you simply have invested in it.

Most of the Tattoo Aftercare cream on the marketplace for this purpose are usually formulated with a mess of chemical and petrochemical ingredients. Which pose a risk to your health? Even more so considering that your skin absorbs quite 60% of what you apply thereon. This percentage of absorption being higher when the skin has wounds, as is that the case with a tattoo.
Consequently, knowing the way to choose an honest cream becomes transcendental, not just for an honest healing and subsequent care of your tattoo, but also to guard your health.

But don't be concerned; to shed a touch light on this issue we've put together this post. With it we shall summarize the ingredients, wont to make this sort of creams, which are considered more dangerous by different international organizations. Which therefore you ought to avoid in the least costs:

1. Phenoxyethanol.
It is considered a toxic preservative for the system. Additionally, it can cause allergies and irritations.

Its use has been restricted in Japan and in several countries of the ecu Union.

Avoid using any cream that contains the word Phenoxyethanol in its composition.

2. Petroleum derived oils and fatsThe main problem with substances derived from oil is that they clog the pores of the skin, extract their moisture and stop the skin from optimally performing its physiological functions.

In addition, they're substances considered as environmental pollutants, being difficult to degrade and eliminate in water purification processes. For this reason, they reach our rivers, lakes, seas ... and from there they will pass to the organic phenomenon and thus to our body.
Avoid using any cream that contains words like oil, Vaseline, Paraffinic Liquid, Cyclopentasiloxane, Cyclohexasiloxane, Cyclomethicone, Dimethicone, Dimethiconol, Caromed, Petrolatum, Cora Microcrystalline, Ozokerite, Ceresin, Paraffrylamides, and Acrylates.
3. Petroleum-derived emulsifiers.
By themselves they're considered to be irritating to the skin. Although their main problem is said to their ability to penetrate the skin. Thanks to this, its dangerousness depends on the remainder of the ingredients that are a part of a product, since thanks to this penetration capacity they facilitate the entry into the body of other substances considered as toxic.

Do not use creams that contain the words PEG, PPG, Polyethylene and Hydroxypropyl on their composition label. Also as those words that end in "eth" like Ceteareth.

4. Perfumes.
Under the generic name of fragrance, partum or aroma, quite 3,000 ingredients are included, starting from natural essential oils to synthetic ingredients. The overwhelming majority of synthetics is potential allergens, and may cause skin irritations. Also, a number of these ingredients are suspected of being carcinogenic, like phthalates.

Avoid any product that contains the words Fragrance or Partum and choose people who contain natural essential oils.

From the experience that we've acquired throughout our lives curing and caring for our own tattoos, also as everything we've heard, read and discovered ... an honest cream for the care of your tattoo, additionally to being freed from toxic ingredients, should meet the subsequent basic requirements:

Moisturizing
A good hydration of your Tattoo Ointments is important for its correct curing and fixing of the color on the skin. For this reason, you ought to choose a cream that has moisturizing properties. Although, something you ought to confine mind is that both an excess and a defect of hydration of the tattoo can have negative consequences thereon. So:

- If the tattooed area is just too dry, the scab may harden, causing the ink particles to tug . Which causes unwanted gaps within the tattoo color?
- On the opposite hand, excess humidity within the area (applying excessive cream) can cause excessive softening and stop it from healing properly.
In conclusion, if you apply a skinny layer of cream on the tattooed area, after each cleaning of it, it should be enough.

Healing
as we've already mentioned before, we must be very clear that a tattoo is, ultimately, a wound on the skin. Therefore, it's essential that the cream that we use to cure its properties that promote perfect healing. These properties should include:

- Protective
- Regenerating
- Antiseptics
- Antibacterial

In addition to an honest cream, the scarring will depend upon applying the right hygiene measures during its cure. Therefore, it's important that you simply ask your tattoo artist for advice on these measures. In case, after adopting of these measures, you notice that you simply aren't healing well, attend your doctor as soon as possible, just in case you would like a selected treatment for yourself. Remember what we've said before, each body may be a world!!

From ECOPLATEA we recommend the calendula and almond cream since it's made without toxic ingredients, also as being moisturizing and healing. And in particular because we've proven its effectiveness on our own skin.
