Allergic Reactions to Jagua

Body allergies are rare when using naturally derived dyes. Even though Jagua is a natural product, it is possible that some people have allergies not only to Jagua but to any of the ingredients of the final product, so it is recommended that people with sensitive skin do a previous test of the product before applying it fully on the skin. It is important to advise that artists must use ingredients of proven quality so that the final product maintains its high quality. People who have experienced allergic reactions to Jagua usually report rashes that are more like red bumps. These should not be confused with the allergic reactions produced by the use of HENNA NEGRA which contains PPD. Allergic reactions to JAGUA will not leave a lasting scar. In general, the rashes caused by JAGUA can be treated with some anti-itch cream, however it will always be much better to see your personal doctor.


Artists whose clients may have sensitive skin are recommended to take extra precautions and follow these steps:

1- Inform to your customers that there is a possibility to have allergies. (Approx. 5% of people are allergic to Jagua)

2- Do a small test on the wrist & wait for 10-15 days to be ensure no allergic reaction takes place. For the test, you can use patches or create a little stain on your customer skin

3- If everything goes well, enjoy the Jagua!
