Frequently asked questions

Derived from the Genipa Americana fruit, the jagua powder is 100% organic, safe, and free from chemicals or added preservatives. It is recommended to do a skin patch test to check if you are allergic to the genipin component of the Genipa plant extract.

The reaction can happen towards the end of the life of the stain, therefore if you want to do a test patch, you must wait for about 2 weeks to make sure you don't have a reaction. For this reason, we decline to use jagua on the face, small children or pregnant women.

This product is not tested on animals and it does NOT contain PPD.

Our jagua is sourced straight from the farm and is produced chemical and pesticide free.

In Colombia, our supplier has developed a set of ingredients from the jagua fruit, which are used in products such as creams, makeup, and food.

The process of supplying raw materials for the production of these ingredients is carried out by linking 95 peasant and livestock families who have suffered violence and forced displacement in the Magdalena Medio region. This sustainable business model with triple impact (social, environmental, and economic) has generated new opportunities for these families, who now have an additional source of income while contributing to the conservation of 1,700 hectares of tropical forest under a payment for environmental services (PES) scheme in alliance with CORNARE (

Our supplier guarantees that the production process is carried out in a sustainable and responsible manner, respecting the rights of workers and the environment.

Yes. When the henna paste includes jagua powder it creates a hengua paste and gives the red/brown stain a much darker intensity.

Recommended ratios for "hengua":

  • For a darker, faster-developing henna stain: use 0.25 oz/7g jagua per 1.76 oz/50g henna (1:7 by volume)
  • For a deep burgundy stain: use 0.53 oz/15g jagua per 1.76 oz/50g (1:3.5 by volume)
  • For a dark chocolate brown stain: use 0.88 oz/25g jagua per 1.76 oz/50g henna (1:2 by volume).

The initial Jagua tattoo will be pale blue-grey if it is visible at all. After several hours, the stain will darken noticeably and turn a deep blue-black in 12 to 48 hours.

Jagua tattoos will only last between 1 and 2 weeks, depending on location and how well you care for them. Because jagua is a dye that absorbs into your skin cells, the faster you lose skin cells, the faster your jagua stain will disappear. Here are some tips to make it last.

  • Before you apply the jagua gel, gently exfoliate.
  • Wash the area to remove your natural oils, and then fully dry your skin.
  • Once you remove the dry jagua, wash with warm soapy water!
  • Moisturize the area to keep your skin healthier for longer. We recommend using coconut oil to keep the area luscious.

Jagua powder has a shelf life of up to one year when vacuum sealed. You can even freeze jagua powder to preserve its staining quality. Once Jagua paste is made, it is recommended to refrigerate it for up to 2 months to sustain the stain quality.
