FDA Bans Tattoo Removal Creams?

Wednesday, October 17, 2007



I am not sure if you have heard about the news that the FDA has proposed a ban on over the counter bleaching creams used for tattoo removal : tattoo removal. If you have tattoo or know someone who has tattoo, you might want to know this info or you might want to pass on this information because it has came to my attention that the FDA has proposed a ban on over the counter bleaching creams used for tattoo removal due to an ingredient that has been linked to cancer.

" Headline: FDA bans Tattoo Removal Creams?

San Diego - With the launch of it’s new website, Inkbusters.com warns the public about possible health risks associated with using tattoo removal creams purchased on the Internet. The new site states “many” tattoo removal creams sold online contain Hydroquinone, which is usually the active ingredient in skin bleaching creams.

In August 2006 the FDA proposed a ban on over the counter skin bleaching creams containing Hydroquinone due to concerns about Cancer and Exogenous Ochronosis. This proposed ban is similar to those already enacted in Japan, France, Great Britain and Australia for the same reasons.

InkBusters.com CEO Rick Barker notes, “Indirectly—and probably without knowing it—the FDA is saying they think the tattooed public may be at risk if they use tattoo removal creams containing Hydroquinone. This is particularly true when you consider most skin bleaching cream makers––prescription or OTC––never recommend Hydroquinone be used more than 4-6 months for maximum effect. Many tattoo removal cream makers online offer supplies well beyond this recommended period.”

InkBusters.com sells TCA at its website to help consumers remove tattoos in a natural non-laser fashion. TCA is a popular non-prescription skin-peeling agent commonly used by doctors, health spas and private individuals to remove fine lines, wrinkles and acne scars on the face. TCA has twice been medically tested and proven to fade and/or remove tattoos on the body. TCA looks and feels like water and is applied with a q-tip. There is no Hydroquinone in TCA."

Now a days people live with better appearances with better tattoos ,so we should move against the ban of bleaching creams.

The first thing that comes to mind when a BAN is enforced is questioning who is losing money because of something else stepping on their toes. Maybe there is more than one way for safe

Egyptian mummies from 4000 BCE show evidence of attempts at tattoo removal cost. However, since most people live in the present moment, rather than in anticipation of future endeavors, tattoos remain popular.
