We place great value on the skin sensitivity of our products. Therefore, we use only natural dyes and care products. The black colour we use is jagua gel. The gel is prepared from an extract of the South American genipap fruit. We also sell natural Jamila henna.
The main difference is the colour. Henna is obtained from crushed leaves and stems of the henna tree and is used for colouring skin and hair. Henna has a dark brown-reddish colour. Jagua gel, which is made from the sap of the South American genipap fruit, has a dark blue-black colour.
All our products are completely natural and free from any chemical additives. So they are safe for your skin.
Nevertheless, in individual cases they can cause contact allergies. To test for this, it is best to apply a small amount of the product to the crook of your arm and leave it to take effect for 1-2 hours. Wash the area with warm soapy water. This is essential to keep any remaining Jagua from transferring to clothing or other parts of the body. If there is no reaction after 48 hours, you can apply the product safely.
We only use natural products free from all chemical additives in order to protect the skin and hair. Even with natural products, allergic reactions can occur in rare cases. To exclude such cases, make a skin test. To test for this, it is best to apply a small amount of the product to the crook of your arm and leave it to take effect for 1-2 hours. Wash the area with warm soapy water. This is essential to keep any remaining Jagua from transferring to clothing or other parts of the body.

Black henna contains the controversial chemical para-phenylenediamine (PPD). The substance PPD is often used in black hair dye and is very harmful to the skin. It can lead to scarring and skin burns. Therefore, we carry no black henna paste and rely only on purely natural products. Our alternative: jagua gel. It also has a dark blue-black colour and is made from the juice of the genipap fruit.
Good care can prolong the life of your tattoo. To do this, lubricate the tattoo regularly with „MyHenna organic argan oil“ or other nourishing oils. Please make sure that the tattoo does not come into contact with toiletries containing alcohol or other chemical additives
After the tattoo has been applied, you should ensure that the paste does not smudge and allow the henna to dry the first 10 minutes. Depending on the ambient and body temperature, the henna should take about 15-30 minutes to dry and then begin to crumble from the skin. To prevent the paste from crumbling off, cover it with breathable medical tape or a bandage, but not too tight. This keeps the paste in contact with the skin for longer and guarantees an intense colour. We recommend that you allow the henna paste to act for at least five hours. Basically, the longer the better. 12 hours is the ideal time. For example, simply leave it to act overnight. To protect the paint, place paper towels or a piece of cloth on the dry tattoo and fix it with an elastic bandage. After exposure, remove the paste with argan oil. Contact with water should be avoided for at least 24 hours. The longer the tattoo is protected from water, the more intense the colour remains. The colour changes from orange to brown within 48 hours.
After the jagua tattoo has been applied, it must first be allowed to dry for 15-30 minutes. Please note: jagua acts very easily. Ensure that the jagua does not smear or touch clothing. The gel should be left to act for max. 3 hours. Wash it thoroughly with lukewarm water to remove traces of ink until the pattern can hardly be seen. At first, the colour will be light grey and will develop into a blue-black tattoo in the course of the next 24 hours. At this stage it is very important to keep the tattoo warm. The colour develops with heat. Use a hot water bottle, a corn heat pad, etc.
Currently we do not offer the white colour. These are body painting or acrylic based paints. The colours are highly water soluble and therefore last only one day or until they are washed off. We are working to offer more durable a natural dye.
Our products are free from chemical additives and thus act differently depending on the skin type. Note that the colour requires around 24 hours to develop. If the colour does not meet your requirements after this time, we can paint over the pattern a second time in order to better develop the colour. This service is free provided you notify us by email at email@example.com as soon as possible. Please send us a recent photo of your tattoo in order for us to decide whether a second painting is necessary.
This is a normal part of the process. The development of the colour of jagua gel takes between 12-24 hours, in some cases even up to 24 hours. The intensity of the colour develops gradually. It requires heat and time. Note that the colour of the jagua gel rubs off in the first 24 hours. We recommend protecting the tattoo with a light dressing and not to sleep on it.
This effect is significantly influenced by the protein keratin. It occurs more densely in the fingers. The outer layer of skin takes in the colour more intensely, thus ensuring a stronger colour development.
Every skin is different so colour results will vary. The skin could be too dry or too oily, for example. This lay stop the skin pores taking in the the colour properly. In order to achieve the best colour results, we recommend that you exfoliate the skin area before applying the body paint, clean it with alcohol and keep it warm.
