The product contains the aromatic amines o-toluidine and 3,3′-dichlorobenzidine 3,3′-dichlorobiphenyl-4,4′-ylenediamine (measured values: 7.2 mg/kg and 6.4 mg/kg, respectively) and an excessive amount of barium (measured value: 118 mg/kg).

These aromatic amines may cause cancer and dichlorbenzidine is also a skin sensitiser and could trigger allergic reactions.

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.

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.
