Is time to dispel the myth, thinking all eyebrow embroidery will eventually fade into green and red. The kind of pigmentation used is critical in depending what will your eyebrow embroidery fades into. Here is why,
There are two kinds of pigments, Iron Oxide and Synthetic. Both consist yellow, red and black components.
The Differences Between Iron Oxide and Synthetic.
Although both have the same color components, it’s content determines what will the embroidery fades to eventually.
From the diagram above, it clearly shows that in iron oxide, red is the most stable color while in synthetic, black is the most stable color.
The Pros and Cons of Iron Oxide and Synthetic
Red is the stable color of Iron Oxide
The stable red in Iron Oxide gives the brow a warm color initially. While this may be a positive feature, it does not last long as the yellow and black components start to fade. Therefore some eyebrow embroidery will fade to reddish brown.
Metal presence in Iron Oxide
There is a high quantity of metal present in Iron Oxide which is not good for the skin. (Rust is another name for iron oxide, which occurs when iron or an alloy that contains iron, like steel, is exposed to oxygen and moisture for a long period of time. Over time, the oxygen combines with the metal at an atomic level, forming a new compound called an oxide and weakening the bonds of the metal itself.) Don't worry as iron oxide is found in our daily make up even for products that claim they are natural or organic.
How about Synthetic
Needless to say, if black is the stable colour, the embroidery will definitely fade to grey. This also means during the start of the embroidery, the color will not be able to look as warm as compared to iron oxide.
Good news for you is that Synthetic does not contain any metal and is non-magnetic.
Which one last longer
You would be surprised to know that pigments have weight too and iron oxide is heavier than synthetic. As it is heavier, it is easier to apply onto the skin. Synthetic is much lighter, even enabling it to float on water. Having said that, it also requires a longer time and good techniques for the skin to be able to absorb the pigments. So now you know why some embroideries do not last – expertise matters.
