FADE is a hybrid line of pigments that is comprised of mainly inorganic ingredients and uses less organic ingredients compared to I LOVE INK. They are both hybrid pigment lines.
Any deposit of color into the skin is considered permanent.
Inorganic or iron-oxide-based ingredients are derived from natural minerals and tend to appear more earthy and muted in color.
These ingredients tend to fade faster out of the skin because of their particle sizes. Inorganic ingredients have particles that are usually larger in size (in comparison to organic ingredients) thus they might take longer to deposit into the skin. As a result, pigment inks that are solely comprised of inorganic ingredients might be more forgiving and might fade at a faster rate compared to hybrid lines for example.
FADE includes the following inorganic ingredients: Red Iron Oxide (CI 77491), Yellow Iron Oxide (CI 77492), Chromium Oxide Green (CI 77288), Black Iron Oxide (CI 77499), Titanium Dioxide White (CI 77891), and Carbon Black (CI 77266). It also includes an organic ingredient: Yellow 138 (CI 56300). In addition, FADE includes the following additives: Water, Ethanol, PEG-8, PVP/VA Copolymer, Glycerin, and Propylene Glycol.
FADE pigments will gently fade into a softer version of the original color within 12-24 months in most applications however, results will vary depending on client and technique.
