WHAT IS THE ResAP (2008)?
The Council of Europe Resolution (CoE ResAP) (2008) is an internationally recognized benchmark for safety standards for tattoo and permanent makeup inks
WHY IT MATTERS TO YOU
Colorants tested according to this resolution provide a high level of safety and a minimum health risk for consumers. The resolution tests for the following tests:
• Aromatic Amines known to cause Cancer (20 Substances)
• Carcinogens in Categories 1,2 and 3 denoted in the Council Directive 1967/548/EEC of 27th June 1967 (7 Substances)
• Dyes which are carcinogenic, mutagenic, have reprotoxic or sensitizing properties i.e. cause allergic conditions (35 Substances)
• Metals as Impurities (13 Substances)
• Policyclic Aromtaic Hydrocarbons (PAH), Benzene-a-pyrene (BaP)
• Microbiological Test of Sterility
Not only does the ResAP(2008) take into account the potential health risks caused by colorants, aromatic amines, and impurities, it also considers hygienic, packaging, labelling, risk assessment, and information requirements. The basis of all of these requirements being that the tattoo or permanent makeup ink must not endanger the health or safety of persons or the environment.
