After you’ve spent so much time designing the perfect tattoo, choosing the best tattoo artist and reputable shop, deciding on the perfect location and sitting through the pain for the beauty in the end, it can all be for nothing and ruined if you don’t take the proper aftercare measures. If you’ve never gotten a tattoo before, you may not be aware of the importance of tattoo aftercare. Keeping your new tattoo clean and moisturized is crucial to the longevity and success of your new art. However, not all cleansers are created equally.
Why Do I Need Antibacterial Soap For My Tattoo?
When you get a new tattoo, it is an open wound. This is because a needle is puncturing the skin hundreds of times to inject ink into the dermis, which is filled with nerves and blood vessels. It is critical to keep any wound clean and a new tattoo is no exception. As with most wounds though, there are certain things that should be avoided when choosing a particular soap for cleansing. Many soaps contain harsh additives or chemicals that can cause potential issues. The soap should be non-abrasive and free of dyes and fragrance as these can cause irritation or infection to the area. It should also not contain any alcohol because it can cause drying. An antibacterial soap is best as it helps to encourage healing and remove any excess blood, ointment, ink and plasma.
H2Ocean’s Blue Green Foam Soap is specially formulated to effectively wash your new tattoo without causing excessive damage or drying. Replace your current harsh, skin irritating soaps with H2Ocean Blue Green Foam Soap to ensure a better tattoo healing experience. Enriched with aloe vera and minerals, this soap will help you moisturize your skin while disinfecting your tattoo. It’s safer than harsh chemical soaps that burn the skin. It is antimicrobial, antibacterial and fragrance free.
The first 1-2 weeks, you should clean the area once or twice a day with mild, antibacterial soap. Over-washing is not encouraged though as it can also remove healthy bacteria for healing. It is important to use a paper towel to dry and not a cloth towel as it can harbor and distribute bacteria.
Aside from using H2Ocean’s Blue Green Foam Soap for your fresh tattoos, it’s also a great choice to keep on hand for regular daily cleaning at home, work or on the go. You’ll enjoy all the great benefits as well as the portability. Keeping your hands clean has never been more important than in current times and Blue Green Foam Soap can help to ensure your health and cleanliness are a top priority.
