Organic pigment vs. Inorganic pigment for permanent makeup

by | May 29, 2024

When I first started Permanent Makeup Artistry, I was trying to find a niche market.  How can I be different from every other Permanent Makeup Artist?

I started thinking…”what if I marketed “Organic” pigment that’s made from natural plants and extracts?’
I found a Pigment Manufacturer who claimed that her pigments are “Organic”.

I soon discovered that Organic pigment still contains Iron Oxide otherwise our skin would quickly absorb pure ‘Organic’ extracts.  As a result, the pigment wouldn’t last.

So whether someone tells you they use ‘organic’ or ‘in-organic’ pigment, they all have low doses of iron oxide.  The traces are low, therefore, not harmful to your body.

By the way, I soon discovered that every Permanent Makeup Artist is indeed unique.  They put their art on women’s faces.  Our clients trust us to make them more beautiful than when they first walked in.  Our job is to make your brows frame and enhance your eyes, while creating an illusion that you have hair.  The point is to make your eyes the focus, not your brows.  It just happens that your brows frame your eyes beautifully.  All I can do for my clients is to show them my work and photos.  I am extremely passionate about my art!!!

Cheryl Doss of Lasting Impressions in Venice, Florida always reminds me…
“It’s all about your clients!   It’s your responsibility to make them look beautiful. So don’t get so fixed on the Ego part of this work.”  I Love Her!
