Update on the European REACH regulation n. 2020/2081 on tattoo inks and permanent make-up colors in force from 4th January 2022.

With the new European regulation EU n. 2020/2081 available at this link all manufacturers of tattoo and permanent make-up colors who will sell the products in Europe are required to comply with the very stringent new rules that will come into force on January 4th, 2022.

All producers are working to be ready for this important event and to give continuity to the sector. The work to be completed is monstrous, over 4000 substances banned, new limits for heavy metals, aromatic amines, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, and the replacement of isopropyl alcohol commonly used for years in every tattoo color. This involves reformulating, analyzing and certifying all the colors on the market.
