Understanding the Risks of Airbrushing with Dye: Prioritising Safety in Beauty Salons

Understanding the Risks of Airbrushing with Dye: Prioritising Safety in Beauty Salons

In the ever-evolving landscape of beauty treatments, one trend that has been gaining attention is airbrushing with dye products. However, before rushing to introduce this service into your salon, it's crucial to delve into the potential health implications, both for therapists and clients alike.

At The London Brow Company, we place the safety of our products and the well-being of our customers and therapists at the forefront of everything we do. That's why we're taking a closer look at the risks associated with airbrushing with dye, particularly concerning chemicals like paraphenylenediamine (PPD).

PPD is a serious chemical found in many hair dyes, capable of emitting toxic gases in small amounts. Regular exposure, especially in environments like hair salons where it's used daily, can lead to various health issues. From common side effects like contact dermatitis to more severe conditions such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), the risks are significant.

As lash and brow artists, our exposure to chemicals like PPD is typically minimal when using cream-based products with low oxidation. However, the introduction of airborne chemicals through airbrushing increases the risk exponentially. Not only can clients experience adverse skin reactions, but the potential respiratory implications pose even greater concerns.

Imagine the scenario: microscopic dye particles floating in the air, making their way into the eyes, nose, and mouth of both therapists and clients. The consequences of such exposure are unknown, and the lack of comprehensive research raises red flags.  If a client has an allergic reaction after inhaling PPD microscopically - would you be prepared on how to manage this in salon?

Therefore, as a brand committed to safety and transparency, we've made the decision not to offer airbrushing with our dyes or tints at this time. Until further research can assure us of the safety of this method, we believe it's essential to err on the side of caution.

In conclusion, while airbrushing with dye may seem like an innovative beauty technique, it's crucial to weigh the potential risks against the benefits. Prioritising safety not only protects the health and well-being of therapists and clients but also upholds the integrity of your salon. At The London Brow Company, we remain dedicated to providing top-quality, safe, and effective beauty solutions, always putting health first.
