LUXE is here. What’s your next move?
We’re here to help you transition with the changes in EU regulations.
What is REACH?
On January 4, 2022, revised REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation & Restriction of Chemicals) regulations went into effect, banning specific substances affecting all tattoo & permanent make-up inks sold in Europe.
In response, Perma Blend launched LUXE, a new REACH-compliant line to ensure European artists have continued access to high quality pigments. While transitioning to LUXE is a great first step, ECHA recommends certain protocols to protect artists and their studios.
Your To-Do List
You’ve chosen LUXE, so you should be fine, right? Yes, but there are a few more steps to take, to ensure you and your studio will be recognized as REACH compliant when undergoing an examination.
ALL non-compliant pigments need to be disposed of from your studio and be sure to keep some sort of record of the disposal as proof in cases of examination. There is chance that if you are found to still be in possession of non-compliant pigments, even if you have transitioned to LUXE, action could still be taken against you.
When you begin with a new client, as they properly fill out all legal permissions for the procedure, you must relay to that client all information on the LUXE pigment bottles. This will ensure all safety protocols are followed and that your client has no allergies to any of the substances within the pigment.
If you do not follow through with the above steps of transition, you could face a prison sentence of up to 2 years &/or substantial fines. The above disciplinary action does not take into consideration the possibility of any claims filed against you or your business from potential clients. These penalizations are subject to change depending on your country of residence, so please check with your appropriate country’s authorities to confirm.
Why Choose LUXE?
As with all of Perma Blend’s products, there have been great lengths taken to ensure significant care, research, and testing are followed with each of the LUXE pigments to guarantee all products are safe, durable, and easy to use for all cosmetic tattoo artists.
During the development of LUXE, Perma Blend worked diligently to ensure all products were monitored at every level of manufacturing and testing, beginning with individual ingredients and finishing with the final pigments. All products are controlled at the highest level of efficiency and security with the quality control system, ISO 13485. As the industry has evolved with these regulations, Perma Blend underwent a metamorphosis, expanding its research, manufacturing, and testing facilities to triple in size. Now, a new magnificent addition to their US-based manufacturing, bottling, and R&D facility has expanded their capabilities to create the pigments you have sworn by for years.
With over 40+ decadent hues and formulations to choose from, LUXE is here to make your transition to the new EU regulations comfortable and successful. At launch, LUXE is only available to artists in the EU, so that they can be fully supported during this transition.
