As we all know the new Reach (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals) regulations of the European Union, which came into effect this past January, has modified the chemical concentrations which are permitted in tattoo inks.
These new regulations cover more than 4,000 substances which makes it challenging to comply. We are working closely with our legal and scientific team to ensure that we meet all requirements in order to comply. The trial and testing period is very extensive and thorough, which in the long run will be beneficial to us all and we are grateful for your comprehension.
At the moment we have identified the best new pigment options that will be compliant, yet we are still at the testing phase, both in laboratories and on the skin, in order to verify the stability and longevity of the pigment. We must be certain that this product meets all safety requirements worldwide and that we bring forward a trustworthy ink, before releasing it to the market.
As of now it is only the EU that has adopted these new regulations, but many countries may follow afterwards, therefor it is our priority to bring you the best quality ink that is out there, which meets these regulations. Radiant Colors Inc is working on a new line that will be specifically compliant to REACH and we aim to be ready by the first quarter of 2022. As soon as we have our new range ready we will formally notify you all. Once again, thank you for your patience and trust in Radiant Colors Inc,
