Inkmedix® Aftercare Oil 50ml Men
Forget thick and sticky aftercare products that latch on to clothing and make you uncomfortable, INKMEDIX is a revolutionary natural oil that intensely and deeply moisturises whilst still allowing the skin to breathe.
Containing a range of different oils, each individual INKMEDIX ingredient was handpicked for its ability to moisturise and promote the longevity of the tattoo’s vibrance and health. Most people stop using aftercare straight after their tattoo has healed but to keep colours bright and black bold your tattoo needs to be nourished, Inkmedix's luxurious formula can be used from the day you have your tattoo and then a few times a week to maintain your tattoo.
With two beautifully printed bottles, one with women in mind and one appealing to men, you can choose the bottle best suited to your style. W ith its manageable 50ml size, its ideal to fit perfectly in a wash bag, carry around in a handbag and will even go in your hand luggage!
The magical formula is vegan friendly, free from parabens, petroleum, colour, fragrance and essential oil omits any potentially irritating ingredients that could affect the look of your tattoo and irritate the skin –which is essential for any choice of aftercare products and ideal for all skin types and tattoo locations.
The easy twist open top allows for easy application with the oil consistency also being ideal for guaranteeing a thorough and easy application for even the most difficult tattoo locations. No more painful applications of a thick product that needs firm pressure to spread it, the oil glides easily and quickly over your skin.
How do I use it?
The bottle comes with a twist top, drip a few drops directly on to your tattoo (or on to your hands for hard to reach areas), lightly spread with your hands (make sure you’ve washed them first) and that’s it. Apply 3-4 times a day. Use regularly to maintain the vibrancy of your tattoo.
What does each ingredient do?
Safflower Oil, Safflower oil is used as a lubricant with occlusive properties, meaning that it acts as a protective barrier to prevent water from leaving your skin. It works with your skin to soften dryness and smooth roughness. Pressed from the blooming plant's seeds, safflower oil contains linoleic acid, an essential fatty acid that offers many benefits for skin. This acid is a key reason why safflower oil works so well in skin care products. Linoleic acid offers powerful dirt- and oil-removing abilities.
Squalene, Squalane oil (derived from vegetables) is so fine it is absorbed deep into the skin-leaving no oily film-with amazing quickness. This smooth, deep penetration assists in the acceleration of new cell growth. It also helps to discourage the growth of bacteria that can block normal cell development.
Sweet Almond Oil, The oil is easily absorbable and serves as a great emollient, by lending a soft glowing beautiful touch to the skin. It balances the moisture in the body. In case of loss of moisture, it helps to restore it. It makes a great lubricant, thus aids in combating itching and inflammation. It is an excellent natural moisturiser that is suitable for all skin types.
Tocopherol Acetate, Tocopherol, or vitamin E, a fat-soluble vitamin is a naturally occurring antioxidant which can be isolated from vegetable oil. Tocopheryl Acetate, or more commonly known as Vitamin E, is a natural preservative, anti-oxidant and moisturiser. It reduces trans-dermal water loss and helps maintain connective tissue.
Oil Extracts of Laminaria Digitata (seaweed), The more traditional green seaweed is also rich in essential energising minerals and trace elements. It contains amino acids and vitamin A, E, C and B. It helps to stimulate the production of collagen in the body and because of its purging, draining, metabolism accelerating and re mineralising properties.
Oil Extracts Spirulina, Spirulina is the richest whole food source of anti-oxidants, as it contains almost all known anti-oxidants: C, B1, B5 and B6, the minerals zinc, manganese, copper, amino acid methionine, beta-carotene and vitamin E.
Hazelnut Oil**, Due to its light consistency, hazelnut oil deeply penetrates and softens the skin. Hazelnut oil has a high vitamin-E content and is especially nurturing because of its unsaturated fatty-acid content. It is also frequently used in sun care products because it absorbs the damaging UV component of sunlight, and can also prevent the generation, or at least the damage caused by antioxidants by sunlight and by atmospheric pollutants such as traffic and industrial emissions.
Azulene, Azulene is a natural, healing botanical extract from the chamomile flower and helps to soothe sensitive areas and prevent the formation of inflammations
Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride (coconut oil), The benefit of coconut oil on the skin is comparable to that of mineral oil. Unlike mineral oil, there is no chance of having any adverse side effects on the skin with the application of coconut oil. Coconut oil therefore is a safe solution for preventing dryness and flaking of skin. The small molecular structure of coconut oil allows for easy absorption through the skin, giving it a soft, smooth texture. It makes an ideal ointment for the relief of dry, rough skin.
**As this product does contain hazelnut oil, it's best avoided by anyone that has a nut allergy.
