Our ingredients and their benefits;
OUR BASE CREAM:
Shea Butter + Natural Vitamin E Cream; Shea butter contains vitamins and minerals such as vitamins A and E (boom - double the goodness), as well as essential fatty acids. It has been used for centuries for its moisturising, anti-inflammatory and anti-ageing properties.
Shea butter has the ability to soothe, hydrate and balance your skin. It is used as a moisturiser for dry skin and eczema, as a dry scalp treatment, for chapped lips and to help soften cracked dry skin on heels, elbows and knees. Shea butter has natural anti-inflammatory properties that have been known to heal scrapes, cuts and burns, tattoos, relieve sunburn, take the sting out of insect bites, ease the pain from muscle fatigue and arthritis.
Shea butter has been used for centuries as a wrinkle reducer. Shea butter contains essential fatty acids, along with vitamins A and E (with added natural vitamin E cream to ensure maximum results), which are imperative to maintaining your skin's elasticity and suppleness.
It has been found to have significant anti-ageing properties and was proven to help rebuild and rejuvenate collagen. Shea butter and Vitamin E, when used continually over time, can reduce the appearance of sun damage, stretch marks, scarring and even cellulite. All of which relates directly to older tattoos that probably suffer from the same damages.
BUT WHAT MAKES US EXTRA SPECIAL, IS OUR UNIQUE, TRADEMARKED BLEND OF MAGICAL OILS AND NATURAL INGREDIENTS BELOW:
Grapefruit Oil; Promotes healthy cleansing and detoxification of skin. Supports healthy skin by soothing and cleansing. Eliminates odours and is very rich in Vitamin C.
Antioxidant + Immune system booster. Fights free radicals. Protects body from various oxidants and toxins including premature ageing + degeneration of tissues.
Disinfectant - Antiviral and antimicrobial properties. Protects body from infection.
Antiseptic - Perfect for bruises, wounds, cuts, acne, skin irritations and prevents wounds/cuts/fresh tattoos from becoming infected. Can assist with muscular cramps and stiffness as well as with ageing skin with a loss of elasticity.
Jojoba; A versatile natural oil that penetrates the skin for a deep hydration, not just a surface hydration of the skin. This is great for tattoos during healing as well as existing tattoos as the ink needs a deeper penetration of the skin for hydration, which separates our product from a standard moisturiser. Ink Nurse is designed for a deeper hydration, which targets tattoos and their ink pigmentation under the surface.
Our skin is made up of natural wax esters (called sebum) which lock in moisture to keep skin looking healthy and hydrated. During the natural, inevitable ageing process we all experience, this sebum production begins to decrease; meaning fine lines, dry skin and loss of elasticity (all of which affect the appearance of an aged tattoo). The Jojoba plant actually produces wax esters almost (if not) identical to our very own sebum. If you compare the molecule structures of Jojoba wax esters and human skin sebum, there can be an identical double bond. This means that jojoba may actually mimic our skin’s natural oils and can penetrate at a deeper level.
Studies have documented that jojoba improves the feel of skin and provides a substantial long-acting skin hydration effect.
Jojoba contains nutrients like vitamin E and B, as well as minerals like chromium, copper, and zinc, which all nourish and protect skin from environmental stressors. Perfect benefits for the longevity of a tattoo’s appearance.
Avocado Extract; Rich in oleic acid, which is known to aid in speeding cell regeneration, wound healing, aiding the body in repelling and eliminating microbial infections, as well as reducing inflammation inside and out.
Avocado oil is among the top foods highest in vitamin E. This fat-soluble vitamin is known for improving skin and eye health, bolstering the immune system and providing defense against oxidative damage to cells caused by free-radicals.
The vitamins and minerals in avocado oil are not only nourishing for the inside of your body, they can also feed you from the outside in. Boost your skin’s ability to generate more and stronger cells by moisturising with avocado oil. The vitamin E, potassium, and lecithin, which are the primary skin-feeding nutrients in the oil, are all easily absorbed through the epidermis – the outermost layer of the skin – and into the dermis where they provide energy for the growth and health of new skin as well as fortification of existing cells.
Due to its high concentration of anti-inflammatory oleic acid, avocado oil can be applied topically to ease discomfort caused by all manner of skin conditions, including but not limited to dandruff, cracked heels, keratosis pillars, insect bites and stings, sunburn, eczema and psoriasis.
Just as avocado oil helps the body to grow healthier and stronger skin, it can also speed up the healing process. Once you’ve thoroughly cleaned the affected area, try treating damaged skin caused by cuts, scrapes, burns, raw skin from blisters or rashes, sunburn, bug bites and stings, and other wounds, such as tattoos. Your skin will heal faster and have less chance of scarring.
Coconut Oil; Contains saturated fats, which are medium chain fatty acids or triglycerides. When applied on the skin, they keep it smooth. Due to the presence of these fats, coconut oil also retains the moisture content of the skin, as the fats eliminate moisture loss through the pores on skin. Coconut Oil also contains - Capric/Caprylic/Lauric acid: These three fatty acids have strong disinfectant and antimicrobial properties. Coconut oil will protect open wounds such as a fresh tattoo, from microbial infections. Rich in vitamin E, which is essential for healthy skin growth, also aids in the repair of wear and tear on the skin, keeping skin smooth and protecting from cracking. Coconut oil also prevents premature ageing and wrinkling. All of this can be very useful to the healing and rejuvenation of faded tattoo appearance. Probably the most well known go-to singular ingredient in the tattoo care world.
Rose hip; Known as a "do-it-all oil". It will hydrate the skin, aid with evening out skin tone and lightening pigmentation (great for faded-existing tattoos!), fade acne scarring and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It will also help to keep the skin firm and retain elasticity. It’s almost entirely made of fatty acids so it’s terrific for skin cell regeneration. Great for post-sun exposure and damage (once again - great for sun damaged tattoos - which is one of the main causes of faded tattoos). Rose hip Oil is rich in Vitamin A, which is great for balancing oily skin. An excellent anti-ageing ingredient.
Cetearyl and Sorbitan Olivate; Is a unique natural PEG-free emulsifier from Olive oil. It reduces skin water loss, has a high moisturising effect, is hypoallergenic and bio-mimics the skin. This PEG-free emulsifier is derived from olive oil, combining the properties of olive oil with other naturally derived ingredients for the desired emulsification effect. It occurs naturally in vegetables and fruits. It contains humectant properties, which promote the retention of water. It is also a naturally derived emulsifying wax.
Almond Sweet Oil; Almond oil had been used extensively for its health benefits and as a beauty aid much before science caught up with the goodness of this seed oil. Very popular in Southeast Asia and in the Mediterranean region, where the Almond tree was first domesticated. The almond kernels and the oil extracted from them were credited with promoting heart and skin health. Almond oil is a mild, hypoallergenic oil that can be safely used, even on a baby's skin. Rich in Vitamin E, regular application of the oil can protect your skin from oxidative stress and UV radiation damage, keeping it soft and supple. It can easily penetrate deep into the skin, softening and dislodging the dirt and debris accumulated in the skin pores, excellent for the appearance of your tattoos. Great results have also been found with the treatment of skin rashes, eczema and psoriasis.
Australian Mandarin Cold Pressed Oil; This ingredient improves the circulation of blood and lymph, particularly below the skin, which may keep the skin feeling rejuvenated as well as looking young and vibrant. Another excellent ingredient to aid in the combat of skin irritations.
All ingredients are vegan suitable.
