LI Pigments perform well, last long and do not change colour, which is why we love and sell them!
The high quality of LI Pigments has to do with the manufacturing processes and the way the pigment is broken down and mixed, the concentrated levels, and most importantly the fusion method of the pigments. As safe pigments that last and hold true to colour over time, LI Pigments have developed a pigment line that outperforms any other.
LI Pigments introduced “Fusion Technology” to the industry back in 1992, revolutionizing the permanent makeup industry.
Once LI Pigments accomplished this remarkable result in pigment performance, they developed and released their own pigment line. In 1998 Aqua™ & Velvet™ were born with this unique process to fuse ingredients for natural long lasting true colour. Darlene Story, the owner and developer of LI Pigments, is a brilliant pigment maker and Aqua & Velvet are her babies She is consistently learning new ways to make this line even better and applies these new technologies to the Aqua & Velvet line. Every single pigment/colour formulation in the Aqua & Velvet line are unique and exclusive to the Aqua & Velvet line.
Why they are gamma radiated and why are they to be considered safer than some of the other options?
Sterilization kills all the bacteria and spores so the pigment is safe to use. For safe pigments, use pigments from reliable manufacturers that follow all the current GMPS (Good Manufacturing Practices) and produce pigments from safe and approved ingredients. Since there are no specific laws in the US regarding permanent cosmetics and tattooing; LI Pigments as a company adheres to the European regulations and pass all EU testing.
LI Pigments go above and beyond what is required by also using sterile water in all their formulations….NOT distilled. Having a state of the art water sterilization system put in t their factory was extremely expensive and not required…but LI Pigments always puts safety and quality first.
