of the products sold on this website are deemed safe for commercial
use. However we recommend that all buyers and users exercise
common sense and caution as follows:
"black lights" do produce light in the UV range, their
spectrum is confined to the longwave UVA region. UVA is considered
the safest of the three spectra of UV light. It is the higher
energy (shortwave) light in the UVB and UVC range that is responsible
for the DNA damage that leads to skin cancer. UVA light is much
lower in energy and does not cause sunburn. UVA is capable of
causing damage to collagen fibers, so it does have the potential
to accelerate skin aging and cause wrinkles. UVA can also destroy
vitamin A in the skin.[citations needed]
light can cause DNA damage, but not directly like UVB and UVC.
Due to its longer wavelength, it is absorbed less and reaches
deeper skin layers (the leather skin), where it produces reactive
chemical intermediates, such as hydroxyl and oxygen radicals,
which in turn can damage DNA and result in a high risk of melanoma
risk. The strength of a black light in comparison to sunlight
is minuscule, so it is doubtful that UVA light poses any significant
health risks. The weak output of black lights should not cause
DNA damage or cellular mutations the way sunlight can.
The type of Ultra Violet light referred to within this website
is termed UVA Blacklight or woods light. It represents light
wavelength in the region of 360-420 nanometres. The term UV
is a widespread term for all electromagnetic light frequency
of between 100 and 400 nanometres. Lower waves of below 300nm
are used in tanning salons and germicidal equipment. UVA is
the safest form of UV light but prolonged exposure should not
and Makeup Products
Our products are made using inks and pigments which have
been used on the skin for at least 10 years with no known problems.
We have no knowledge of any documented evidence of any adverse
reaction from using this ink on the skin.
However, this product is not designed to be used as a cosmetic.
It is not a sterile product and as a result the following precautions

on sore or broken skin.
· If ink comes into contact with eyes, flush with water
and seek medical attention if the irritation continues
· Remove with recognised skin cleaner
· Do not leave on skin for prolonged periods, and in
no circumstances a period more than 12 hours
· Test product on a patch of skin 24 hours before use
· Stop use if irritation develops
· This product is not sterile
· Replace cap or reseal when not in use
· This product should be used with adult supervision
and is not intended for use on children.
products contain no known irritants but you should bear in mind
that all people have different skin types and skin sensitivity.
Before using any makeup product, we recommend you test a small
area of the skin (for example, the back of the hand) to identify
for reaction. In very rare and extreme cases (less than 1 in
5,000) a user may develop a rash or itching in response to application.
In this instance, wash with regular soap and do not continue
In some of our products, for example our UV bubble concentrate,
