As of the 4th of January 2022, new REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals) regulations went into effect, prohibiting the use of specified chemicals in all tattoo and permanent make-up inks supplied in Europe.
This meant that Shop PMU Beauty alongside many other European permeant makeup suppliers are now unable to supply the original Perma Blend pigments we know and love.
But, fear not, Perma Blend have responded and ensured artists can still work with superior quality brow, lip and skin pigments that you’ve come to love, with the help of the new, vigorously tested Perma Blend Luxe pigment range.
The Perma Blend team have been very hard at work, making it their top priority to develop the brand new, luxury range, with the same quality you’d expect from the global manufacturer. The quality control system, ISO 13485, ensures that all goods are controlled at the greatest degree of efficiency and security. Now 100% EU and REACH compliant, adhering to all of the new regulations, you and all of the other talented PMU and cosmetic tattoo artists around the world can continue to strive!
We understand that the main concerns surrounding the new Luxe range is the colour difference between this and the original Perma Blend pigment series. In short, yes, the colours are different. This is because Luxe is a completely new range that holds a new formulation to adhere to the new European regulations. However, like Perma Blend, our dedicated team of industry experts have also been hard at work in colour matching the old to new pigments. We want you to have confidence when shopping with us and being able to take the guesswork out of your shopping, and allowing you to continue using the colours you love, is very important to us.
With 40 luscious and sought-after shades Perma Blend Luxe pigments on offer, our very own Director Naomi O’Hara, has thoroughly researched each pigment from the original series and new Luxe range. Giving you her upmost professional opinion on similar colour matches.
Here are some of Naomi’s recommended colour matches:
