My goal is to share with tattoo collectors some valuable lessons of the skin and to promote skin cancer awareness. I created Umidita to help educate people about more advanced skincare regimines being used in other parts of the world. There are secret botanical spas that are old world, ancient, and revered for their naturally derived treatments, believed to aid in overall health and vibrance.
I strive to create the purity and richness that these spas are celebrated for, so that you too can indulge in these time honored rituals.
I am so proud and honored that Savemyink.com picked Umidita as the "The Best Kept Secret In Tattoo Care". I appreciate getting to help people find healthier ways to wellness and balance.
There are many places in the world that do not promote the use of SPF, yet are much closer to the sun than here in the US. Many of these places have much lower rates of skin cancer than we do, in some cases up to 50% less. Some research shows skin cancer rates have gone up as much as 200% since the regular use of SPF started here in the US. There are many people who refuse to use SPF due to the chemicals used to crete it.There has been lots of debate on whether SPF is causing more harm than good. It is always up to us to ultimately educate our selves, to do our own responsible research, and make informed decisions.
I encourage everyone to do what they feel is right for them personally.
After learning about what has been used to aid in skin health for thousands of years in Indigenous tribes, I wanted to create and provide something that could help as an extra barrier of protection.
Derived from a tree found throughout the Amazon basin and central Brazil, this botanical has long been used by the native Indians to heal cuts and wounds. It has been used in tribal branding and tattooing since the beginning of these traditions. The nut from this plant resembles a chestnut and has a very oil rich kernel in the center and it also possesses a naturally occurring SPF factor. These rich unsaturated fatty acids help to rebuild, moisturize and re-hydrate skin cells. It is commonly applied directly to cuts and burns, because of its soothing qualities and its ability to promote the formation of scar tissue.
Developed exclusively from unique oils found and used primarily in the Mediterranean, these extracts are extremely rich in vitamin E (tocopherols) and have one the richest natural sources of pro-vitamin A available (carotenoids). Promotes circulation of blood in the skin and helps to relieve pain and swelling during injury, thus making it a favorite with tattoo artists in this region. It contains the component limonoid which is known to have antiviral, anti-fungal, antibacterial and insecticidal properties.
My skincare treatments are stored in glass, blue cobalt (Dr. Edwin Babbitt, in his classic, "The Principles of Light and Color," states that "The Blue Ray is one of the greatest antiseptics in the world."), or aluminum containers, recommended for highest safety & health standards, as plastic containers absorb into lotions & creams.
Some studies have shown, when we surround ourselves in beauty or in the deep blue color of cobalt blue glass we experience more restful sleep, greater states of peace, relaxation, rejuvenation and more articulate communication. The same is true for the consciousness and structure of water. By molecular count, consider... we are 99% water, and 75% mass. Doesn't it make sense to treat our skin and skin treatments as the sacred receptor, and wellness expanding organ it is? Yes! Because it leads to all of our other organs. So spa your way to better health and wellness.

Tattoo artists are some of our biggest supporters, the amount of work and time they put in to their clients is one of the ways that show how devoted they are to the art.
