Many are drawn to the term ‘Organic’, but it’s crucial to understand that Organic pigments are composed of carbon atoms derived from plants, fruits and animals. They deliver bold, vibrant colours that have remarkable longevity. However, they come with a slightly higher risk of allergic reactions and tend to cool down in colour over time. As a result, I often recommend Organic pigments for clients with oily skin, swimmers, those with existing tattoos, or anyone seeking less frequent touch-ups or refreshes.
On the other hand, Inorganic pigments, also known as Mineral pigments, are synthetically manufactured from metals, with Iron Oxide being the most prevalent. Iron Oxide is renowned for its gentle, non-toxic and non-irritating properties, offering a wide range of earthy hues. These pigments tend to heal with a warmer tone over time. They are an ideal choice for clients seeking a soft, translucent, and natural appearance or those with allergies to specific fruits and plants. Additionally, they suit clients who don’t mind more frequent touch-up sessions.
But here’s the exciting part-there’s a pigment type that combines the best of both worlds, known as Hybrid pigment. Hybrid pigment is my preferred choice for the majority of my work. It strikes the perfect balance, offering vibrant colours, longevity, and a versatile range of shades, all while minimising the risk of allergic reactions.
