I created Umidita to help educate people about more advanced skincare regimines being used in other parts of the world. There are botanical spas that are ancient and revered for their naturally derived treatments. We are proud and honored Savemyink.com picked Umidita as the "The Best Kept Secret In Tattoo Care".
There are many places in the world that do not use SPF, yet are much closer to the sun than here in the US and they 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. 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 research and make informed decisions.
I wanted to provide something that could help as an extra barrier of protection, and after learning about what has been used for thousands of years in Indigenous tribes.
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 i known to have antiviral, anti-fungal, antibacterial and insecticidal properties.
My skincare is kept in glass or aluminum containers recommended for highest safety & health standards, as plastic containers absorb into lotions & creams.
My skincare NEVER contains para-bens, petroleum, mineral oil, castor oil, shea butter or any other commonly used synthetic fillers that are known to cause skin reactions.
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. Working with skin for so many years you see it all, and I am happy to create something that can benefit your craft and the people you touch. It means so much to me to work with so many talented people who take responsibility to influence healthy habits and self wellness.
