Iron Oxide vs Non-Iron Oxide in Permanent Makeup

If you’re considering permanent makeup, you may be wondering about the difference between iron oxide and non-iron oxide pigment.

Here’s a short overview of the two types of pigment and their pros and cons.

Main points to consider:

  1. Iron oxide is a type of pigment that is made from naturally-occurring iron ore. It is considered to be safe for use in cosmetics and has been approved by the FDA for use in permanent makeup.
  2. Iron oxide pigment is also hypoallergenic, which means it is less likely to cause an allergic reaction.
  3. Non-iron oxide is a type of synthetic pigment that does not contain any naturally-occurring iron ore.
  4. While non-iron oxide pigments are not FDA-approved for use in permanent makeup, they are frequently used in other types of cosmetics such as foundation and eyeshadow.
  5. Non-iron oxide pigments are also generally more affordable than iron oxide pigments.

So, which type of pigment is right for you? If you’re considering permanent makeup, iron oxide is the safe choice since it has been FDA-approved for use in cosmetics. However, if you’re looking for a more affordable option, non-iron oxide pigments may be a better choice. Ultimately, the decision comes down to personal preference and your budget.
