The product contains the aromatic amine o-anisidine (measured value: 10.3 mg/kg) and an excessive amount of barium and cadmium (measured values: 324 mg/kg and 0.33 mg/kg, respectively).
O-anisidine may cause cancer.
Barium can be easily absorbed and have toxic effects on the body impairing muscle, kidney and heart activity, leading to arrythmia, paralysis or gastrointestinal alterations.
Cadmium is harmful to human health because it accumulates in the body, can damage the kidney and bones, and it may cause cancer.
The Council of Europe Resolution ResAP (2008)1 on requirements and criteria for the safety of tattoos and permanent make-up, recommends that aromatic amines with carcinogenic mutagenic, reprotoxic or sensitising properties should neither be present in tattoos and permanent make-up products nor released from azo-colourants and that barium does not exceed 50 mg/kg or cadmium 0.2 mg/kg.
