Papaya, Paw Paw, (Carica Papaya) a tropical fruit known for having remarkable healing properties is in the Dr Pickles tattoo cream. It is a long time favourite for dry and damaged skin, products containing the fermented papaya possess high levels of vitamins A and C, making it a perfect ingredient for post tattoo care and healing tattoos. Its medicinal history dates back hundreds of years and with such a diversity of uses, it is no wonder that the rest of the world is fast catching on to the usefulness of this exceptional natural skin treatment, but it has been the base of our cream since we began.
Dr Pickles Aftercare CreamD-Panthenol (Vitamin B5) is the ingredient in Dr Pickles tattoo cream that improves and increases the moisture retention in the skin, known as the moisturising effect. It makes dry skin softer and more elastic, an important part of healing tattoos and post tattoo care. Vitamin B5 has an anti-inflammatory effect and soothes irritated skin as well as stimulating healthy reproduction and helps to heal minor wounds – like those caused by the blessed tattoo gun. D-Panthenol not only provides water to the skin surface but it also penetrates deep into the epidermis to retain water within the skin, which is great for healing tattoos.
Allantoin, also in Dr Pickles tattoo aftercare cream, is well known and used for its unique soothing, anti-irritant, anti-inflammatory and calming properties. This is typically used for wounds, sores, skin lesions, lacerations and is exceptionally good for tattoo aftercare. Why? Because it is used to stimulate regeneration of skin cell tissues, making it essential in a great tattoo cream – and we have the best. Allantoin is also rich in Vitamin U which has a skin softening action, providing benefits through skin hydration and soothing. Allantoin is a derivative of Aloe Vera, which is well known for its skin healing properties and use in tattoo aftercare lotion.
