Everything You Need To Know About

Your Henna Body Art Application

Henna is applied either free-hand or with the use of a stencil. The colouring effect of Henna is dependant on the body part that it is applied to. Once the paste has been removed, the pale orange stain that is left must not get wet for at least 24 hours, as it will immediately halt the developing process. The finished Henna stain will vary from light orange to deep mahogany.

The Henna Tattoo will naturally fade between 7-21 days as the skin sheds naturally.

The Henna plant has long been valued in the Eastern World for its many and varied uses. These days the Henna plant is mainly cultivated for its use as a hair-dye and a cosmetic for henna body art, but it is still also highly treasured in the perfume industry.

The Henna plant (Lawsonia Inermis) is a heavily scented evergreen shrub-like tree with abundant branches. Its many leaves are narrow and pointed and the leaves contain the colouring ingredient which is triple-sifted to produce a very fine powder. The Henna powder is then mixed in a cone with a natural catalyst solution and the mixture then becomes active.

Mimicks use the most stable Henna paste available which is an 100% natural product and does not contain any black paraphenylene-diamine (PPD) which can be harmful to the skin.
