Introducing MicroBalm Vegan — a fantastic vegan alternative to our original formula! This all-natural concentrated salve serves as an invaluable tool to optimize the outcome of all tattoo procedures, including permanent makeup, scalp micropigmentation, and body tattoos. Our power-packed formula supports the delicate rejuvenation process and helps supports your skin’s existing moisture and nutrients. With a special formulation of selected herbs, oils, and other ingredients, MicroBalm Vegan helps nourish and protect your skin by providing a clean, breathable barrier without clogging your pores.
MicroBalm Vegan is FREE from bee ingredients and instead contains candelilla wax, a plant-based wax that’s often used as a vegan substitute. Combined with essential oils, arnica, hemp, chamomile, and plantain, this balm meets all of your post-care needs in a single product. We’ve carefully selected these ingredients for their ability to promote healthy inflammatory responses while minimizing itching, irritation, and discomfort. Packaged with love and care in an eco-friendly design, MicroBalm Vegan is formulated to enhance your skin’s protective barrier using the gifts of Mother Nature’s garden.
MicroBalm Vegan is FREE from petroleum, lanolin, mineral oils, and synthetic ingredients, scented only with essential oils of chamomile and lavender. Essential oils have been used for centuries in herbal medicine to promote rejuvenation. Every ingredient has been carefully selected for its contribution to enhancing skin health, and our handcrafted product is proudly manufactured in Canada to the highest standards.
Enhance your cosmetic and body art tattoo results with MicroBalm Vegan, designed to nourish your skin without clogging pores or leeching color.
BEFORE AND AFTER PROCEDURES: MicroBalm Vegan may be used before and after tattoo procedures, including PMU and SMP. MicroBalm Vegan maintains healthy skin hydration, creating the perfect workable canvas pre-procedure and for future tattoos. Our product is used worldwide by tattoo artists for its supportive properties.
PRE-PROCEDURE DIRECTIONS: Apply a thin layer of MicroBalm Vegan to the scalp or body area prior to the procedure. Allow absorption for 10-15 minutes, then cleanse the skin using Membrane MicroTonic. Our formula keeps skin soft and workable for optimal pigment deposition. You may also prepare your client’s skin by providing MicroBalm Vegan to be used daily for one to two weeks before the procedure.
POST-PROCEDURE DIRECTIONS: Apply a thin layer of MicroBalm Vegan one to three times daily to the tattoo, starting the first application six to 24 hours after the procedure. MicroBalm Vegan should be applied for the full recovery period (30 to 45 days). For tattoos on the face, apply a small amount (roughly the size of a grain of rice) to the post-procedure area.
As with any new product, it’s good practice to “spot-test” before using on a fresh tattoo, to wash your hands thoroughly before each use, and to not share salves. Use a fresh cotton swab to apply, without double-dipping. Keep the lid closed tightly when not in use. Discontinue if irritation occurs.
NOTE: MicroBalm Vegan is a multi-purpose salve not only for tattoo post-care, but can/has been used for after any advanced skin treatment, promoting a softer, supple skin barrier with more hydration and moisture.
Here’s an overview of some of the key ingredients:
Plantain: Plantain weed is rich in antioxidants and has been studied for its rejuvenating properties.
Calendula: Calendula oil, extracted from marigold flowers, targets foreign invaders and promotes skin barrier health.
