The Danger of Unlicensed Temporary Tattoo Dye

All temporary skin-staining products, commonly known as henna dye products, need Philippine FDA approval as cosmetic products before they are marketed or used in the country. 


Therefore, consumers are advised to ask any person or company for FDA market authorization or cosmetic notification before getting temporary tattoo. 

For further details on why tattoo dye preparations are important to be registered in FDA, please read the following advisory by Dr. Kenneth Y. Hartigan Go, FDA Acting Director General

  1. I'm not a fan of this art so I think I'm safe, but I understand others why they love putting on marks on their body, it's the only thing they can do to a given. Now that this thing came out, I hope this will serve as a caution that looming danger is there.

  3. Not much a fan of tattoo especially on myself although I appreciate the art. Those who actually do this should be aware of advisories like this.

  4. Thanks for this post. I didn't know that henna dyes should be registered. Here in Dubai, you can buy henna in the supermarkets so sometimes, when I get bored, I do my own henna tattoo. I'll stop after reading this.

  9. I am not into tattoos and certainly don't get the fascination to it. I do understand that some people expresses their creativity through tattoos though.

  10. hey... this is a good-to-know article. I didn't know that henna dye needed FDA approval. I hate needles, therefore scared of the real tattoo. And I always get tempted to get a henna tattoo when i'm out in a beach resort. Thanks for sharing.

  12. I do not like having tattoos in my skin :-( it does not look pretty at all :-( but other people loves having a tattoo in their body :-) I think it is legal that businessman small or big should have a license to operate business :-)

  13. I've also read once from a blogger's post where he contacted allergies from a henna dye he got at Boracay. Since then, I was scared to even try henna. This FDA warning is very informative, we should disseminate this information for our fellow kababayans.
