Using a plant found in the jungles of South America, we create body art in a unique and special way. Our Body painting is matchless, with a permanent design that will disappear once the skin regenerates. 

Profile

If you are looking for a unique and exclusive way to entertain your guests with creative body painting, we offer a 100% extract made gel that stains the skin, from a fruit indigenous to the rain forest, called the Jagua. A common plant throughout the tropics of South America, it has been used as a body art medium for over 2,000 years. We provide the highest quality body ink made from the Jagua fruit. We will permanently stain the outermost layer of your skin, which will create a blue-black temporary tattoo. Once the skin regenerates in up to 14 days, the stain will disappear.
The active ingredient in the Jagua juice is called Genipin. It's bonded to a sugar and together they are called Geniposide. When the fruit is squeezed, the enzymes remove the sugar part of the geniposide; free genipin is released and can react with proteins and amino acids, which then changes color as it goes through the fermentation process. We freeze it directly after the extraction process to prevent it from going through the fermentation process. It is kept frozen until we mix it into a gel with an all-natural formula. We have created a gel with 100% pure extract from the fruit, which helps this process with different types and amounts of ingredients we've chosen for our formula.

Our product is 100% safe, non-toxic and gauranteed a shelflife of 30 years. We are participants in the Darien Initiative, a non profit organization that is helping to preserve the Indian traditions and create a reforestation program in the Panama, by planting the Jagua tree. 100% of all donations go to the programs and people.
