Health and Safety

HEALTH & SAFETY - was founded to offer a safe, temporary, cosmetic skin dye. Jagua (Genipa Americana) has been used for hundreds of years by the indigenous people of Central- and Southern America. We are proud to be the first responsible supplier of Jagua in the Netherlands. Each ingredient of our Jagua products has been tested on its toxicological profile, chemical composition and levels of exposure according European legislation. JaguaHenna gel has been developed according to Cosmetic Products Safety Legislation (EC) No 1223/2009. Jaguahenna disapproves animal testing; our products have therefore not been tested on animals.

Health & Safety Statement - Genipa Americana L. Liquid Extract is an all-natural multipurpose pigment/dye. It is used in a variety of industries such as Textile, Food-colouring, Cosmetics, Medicine and more. Genipa Americana L. Liquid Extract is processed into a safe cosmetic product (i.e. Jagua Tattoo Gel) that can be applied directly onto the skin. THIS IS NOT BLACK HENNA. Products from DO NOT contain PPD (ParaPhenyleneDiamine) or other prohibited substances listed in the European Cosmetic Regulations (EC) No 1223/2009.

Instructions - JaguaHenna VOF recommends that you should carefully read and follow the instructions. If instruction was not provided please contact us for a copy before using this product.
For external use only. This product is for the body only and should not be used on the face. If it comes into contact with the eyes or swallowed contact your doctor and show product labeling. This product is not tested on animals. With any natural product there is a risk of allergic reaction. JaguaHenna VOF cannot guarantee you will not have an allergic reaction to our dye. Despite being a 100% natural product, it is not suitable for everyone. Use at your own risk. Always test on a small patch of skin before attempting a larger design. We particularly discourage the use of Genipa Americana L. Liquid Extract in case of fruit allergies, sensitive skin, eczema, G6PD or similar conditions. It is recommended to consult your doctor before using any dye in any way. If an allergic reaction does occur, an eczema-like rash appears after a couple of days. When treated adequately, such a reaction will NOT create lasting scars. Simply speed up the natural fading process by repeatedly washing the area & gently rubbing dry. Please note that this will take time; do NOT scratch and/or damage the skin! Doctors recommended that the rash can also be treated by applying anti-itch cream. However, avoid self-treatment, contact us immediately, and consult a medical professional. Keep out of the reach of small children. We recommend adult supervision with children under the age of 18. Artists should always inform the client of the fruit base of Genipa Americana L. Liquid Extract and the information provided on this website.

Recommendations for Applying to the Skin - When applied to the skin, leave on for at least three (3) hours, Genipa Americana L. Liquid Extract reacts to naturally occurring ammonia acids in the skin. This reaction will dye the epidermis dark blue / black within 12 – 24 hours. The stain gradually fades in the subsequent 10 – 20 days as the skin regenerates. WE RECOMMEND TO PROCESS GENIPA AMERICANA L. LIQUID EXTRACT INTO A PASTE OR GEL TO ENSURE EASY APPLICATION AND A DARK STAIN. We cannot ensure a dark stain and / or detailed application due to the aqueous viscosity of this product (i.e. Genipa Americana L. Liquid Extract). In general, please note that the darkness and / or colour of the stain will differ per person and per application method. The dye will darken at different speeds due to the amount of ammonia acids your skin contains. This is why we cannot guarantee the length or the darkness of the stain; the length and darkness of the stain is subject to an individual’s ammonia acid level and the time an individual’s skin will regenerate.
