Iron Oxide vs Organic PMU Pigments, what is the difference?  Attempting a new spin on the ancient art of tattooing, many of the new permanent makeup businesses advertise organic pigments. Be wary about the repackaging of long established tattooing knowledge and trendy buzzwords! See Smithsonian’s online article Tattoos: The Ancient and Mysterious History.


Iron Oxide vs Organic

Organic permanent makeup pigments fades faster, and can also be unstable. Organic color pigments are not always consistent from bottle to bottle.  Clearly, just because a peanut is natural does not mean that it does not cause very serious allergic reactions in many people. Nor are peanuts always the exact same color.


Best Permanent Makeup Tattoo Pigment

About Face by Nancy Permanent Makeup only uses iron oxide permanent makeup pigments.  Iron oxide is already present in the body.  A client that is low on iron would have earlier fading as the permanent makeup iron oxide pigments will be absorbed by the body. Ophthalmologist Charles Zwerling coined the term “micropigmentation” and co-authored the book, Micropigmentation: State of the Art states the following:

Dr. Zwerling says pigments, like iron oxide, rarely cause allergic reactions. “Iron oxide has been shown to be the safest pigment,” he says. “Anything that is vegetable based, organic, or natural is the most risky. It’s the natural products in vegetables and herbs that can cause horrible allergic reactions.”
