This blog will cover the ingredients that make up Redemption aftercare. I consider this product to be the very best in aftercare for your tattoo. I have used many others and have had good healing tattoos, but not as much as when I switched to using Redemption for my clients and myself. In the past I used pure arnica root which I consider to be the very best when it comes to healing your skin. For years now my mother in law used a pure arnica cream for my kids burns, bruises, cuts, and scrapes. After one of my own tattoo sessions that I received, I had a few hard healing spots. I remembered my mother in law using the arnica and switch my aftercare regime to arnica cream. I immediately improved my hard healing spots and from then switched my aftercare to washing and using arnica. For clients receiving longer more involved tattoo sessions I recommended using an arnica cream for their aftercare and they loved it. I never had any negative results on clients tattoo areas as well.
After reading Redemption’s ingredients I immediately knew that this was the new product for my clients and myself since one of its ingredients was arnica. I knew arnica was important but want about all the other ingredients. I was impressed that every ingredient either helps to heal the skin or prevent skin issues. Some people use calendula oil on their skin for some skin issues such as eczema, psoriasis, and dermatitis and redemption has this ingredient.
So this blog for me was an investigation into each ingredient that Redemption has in it. Redemption is the first and only USDA certified petroleum replacement developed specifically for Tattoo artists and Collectors. Redemption Tattoo care has many functions such as lubricant, barrier and aftercare and is 100% natural and organic. Redemption can be used by the Tattoo Artist during a tattoo and can be used by the client after during the healing process.
There are many aftercare products out there, but everything within Redemption has healing properties for your skin, which in turn will help during the healing process of a small or large tattoo. Below are some of the healing properties of each ingredient within Redemption.
Everyone of these ingredients has one or more properties in which helps heal the skin, protect, or prevent some infectious elements that might cause your tattoo to not fully heal properly. I hope this serves those individuals that might wonder what makes Redemption such a great aftercare product.
Organic Castor Oil. Castor Oil has found to have antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal properties when used on the skin. It has been used topically to treat a variety of skin conditions, reduce pain, and stimulate your immune system.
Organic Sunflower Oil. Sunflower Oil is specifically related to improving skin health and regenerating cells. This means that your skin is better protected against damage from the sun, as well as the natural degradation of age that occurs when free radicals are present in the body.
Organic Beeswax. Beeswax has anti-inflammatory properties that help to calm and sooth irritated skin. Beeswax is a natural protector when applied to the skin. Beeswax forms a protective barrier that helps protect it from environmental assaults, while also holding in moisture and reducing dryness and does not “suffocate” the skin, and won’t clog pores. Humectant: Some ingredients “attract” water, and beeswax is one of them. When you put it on, you attract water molecules, helping to keep skin hydrated over time. Beeswax aids in dry skin itching, dermatitis, eczema, or any type of itching related to a skin condition. A study published in 2012 found that those patients who suffered serious burns, and later went through “post-burn itch” when the burns were healing, experienced relief with an herbal oil cream and beeswax combination, so much so that they were able to cut back on their use of medications for the itch. Because beeswax is anti-allergenic, even those with reactive skin also easily tolerate it.
Organic Cocoa Butter. Cocoa butter, when applied topically, creates a barrier between sensitive skin and the environment and helps retain needed moisture. In addition, cocoa butter contains cocoa mass polyphenol (CMP), a substance that inhibits the production of the immune-globulin IgE. IgE is known to aggravate symptoms of both dermatitis and eczema.
Organic Coconut Oil. Coconut oil is a great skin softener and helps you do away with dry and hard skin conditions.
Organic Vegetable Glycerin. The safety of vegetable glycerin coupled with its functional properties has made it invaluable for various medical applications. The hydrating effect of glycerin makes it ideal as a topical remedy for burns.
Organic Arrowroot Powder. Mildly cooling on skin, arrowroot powder helps to pull excess moisture from skin allowing it to evaporate. It is a wonderful alternative for those who have corn and gluten sensitivities.
Organic Calendula Oil. Calendula oil is a great moisturizer for dry skin and for severely chapped or split skin. It soothes the area and reduces the pain. It works well on swelling sprained muscles or bruises; its anti-inflammatory action helps lessen swelling from injury. Calendula oil also helps treat spider veins, varicose veins, leg ulcers, and chilblains. Skin issues such as Eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, and other skin problems can be soothed using calendula oil, applied topically.
Organic Arnica. The most common use of Arnica Montana is as a soothing agent for inflammation. In addition to working below the skin to eliminate bruising, Arnica Montana also has slight antimicrobial properties, which makes it very beneficial for people suffering from skin conditions, such as acne, psoriasis, eczema, and others.
Organic Chamomile Extract. Chamomile oil has antibacterial properties and can help to clean and protect wounds from infections.
Organic Rosemary Extract. Rosemary essential oil has antimicrobial and antiseptic qualities that make it beneficial in efforts to eliminate eczema, dermatitis, oily skin, and acne.
Mixed Tocopherols (Vitamin E). More specifically, vitamin E as an antioxidant helps to stabilize cell membranes.
I hope you enjoyed this blog as much as I had researching it.
