Gentle & Refined for Best Removal Results

Available to approved techs who've completed Botched Ink training


Botched Ink® is supplied in a pack of 10 x 2ml single use sachets. We believe this is a first for the tattoo removal industry, with products normally supplied in a bottle which has a limited lifespan when opened, often just 3-6 months, and some products also needing refrigeration

No one likes to throw away an unfinished bottle, but some removal products contain fresh ingredients like Aloe Vera, which is vital to the product working. Using old product will reduce the results achieved

Botched Ink ® does not require refrigeration, and each sachet is marked with the expiry date, which is 2 years after manufacture

Purified Water (aqua)

Purified water has been purified to remove any chemicals or contaminants, making Botched Ink® suitable and safe to use

Dead Sea Salt (sodium chloride)

Sodium Chloride (salt) is used in saline tattoo removal for its ability to dry out the skin. Salt draws water out of cells via the process of osmosis. Essentially, water moves across a cell membrane to try to equalize the salinity or concentration of salt on both sides of the membrane. If we add enough salt, too much water will be removed from a cell for it to remain alive, it will have dried out

Botched Ink ® uses Dead Sea Salt, chosen for its high mineral content which benefit the skin

The Dead Sea is the most saline body of water in the world with far greater concentrations of minerals than any ocean, a concentration of 33% minerals compared to only 3% other seas

Dead Sea Salt uniquely contains:

  • Bromide - heals and relieves disorders, and has relaxing effect as an anti-inflammatory agent, can be used as a natural antibiotic.

  • Magnesium - accelerates metabolism of cells, works as an anti-allergic agent

  • Calcium - soothes and relieves skin cells, is necessary in strengthening cell membranes and cleansing pores

  • Potassium - Improves oxidation, necessary to maintain water balance for cell metabolism to take place, assists cells to absorb nourishment and expel waste products

  • Sodium Chloride - Nourishes and hydrates skin cells and removes toxic waste, improving its permeability

  • Zinc - facilitates cell renewal and stimulates collagen and elastin synthesis (renews skin). A great antioxidant this mineral is a free radical scavenger. Anti-inflammatory properties

Glycerin (glycerin)

Glycerin is a naturally occurring alcohol compound of animal or vegetable origin. Glycerin is often used in beauty products because it's easily absorbed into the skin, this means the active ingredients in Botched Ink® can penetrate deeply with ease. Botched Ink® uses pure vegetable oil derived glycerin, sourced from Rapeseed Oil

Aloe Vera Powder 200:1 (aloe barbadensis leaf juice powder)

Aloe Vera is well-known for its trans-dermal properties, reaching deeper body tissues, making the active ingredients in Botched Ink® easily absorbed. The combination of more than 200 active ingredients makes Aloe Vera unique, with anti-itching, cooling, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, anti-oxidant and moisturizing properties. Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice Powder is obtained from the dried leaf juice. A 0.1% concentration of Aloe Vera powder 200: 1 equates to about 20% Aloe Vera 1:1 gel. Botched Ink® uses Aloe Vera for its trans-dermal and healing properties

Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Chlorphenesin (branded as Mikrokill COS)

Mikrokill COS is a broad-spectrum preservative system which is well accepted in a wide range of skin care products. Approved in Europe and America with a well-documented safety profile. Non-paraben, low odour, pH stable and active on bacteria, yeast and moulds. Botched Ink® uses Mikrokill COS as our preservative system

Corn Starch (Zea Mays)

A starch obtained from corn. Corn starch is great natural remedy to stop bleeding since it aids and speeds up the clotting process. Corn Starch has drying properties which makes it great for this. Corn Starch is also used as a thickening agent in skincare products and is oil absorbing. Corn starch is also naturally gluten free. Botched Ink ® uses Corn Starch to stop the bleeding after treatment and absorb any fluids

Aluminium Sulphate (Aluminium Sulphate)

Aluminium Sulphate is an inorganic compound which has many uses. For cosmetic and personal care products Aluminium Sulphate is used as a deodorant, an astringent used to contract or shrink tissue and dry up secretions, or as a styptic for superficial wounds. A styptic is a substance capable of stopping bleeding when applied to a wound. Aluminium Sulphate causes vascular constriction, allowing the formation of a blood clot. Botched Ink® uses Aluminium Sulphate to stop the bleeding after treatment

Xanthan Gum (Xanthan Gum)

Xanthan gum is a polysaccharide (starch) which has many uses, including as a common food additive. It is an effective thickening agent and stabilizer to prevent ingredients from separating. It can be produced from simple sugars using a fermentation process. Botched Ink® uses Xanthan Gum to thicken and prevent the ingredients from separating

Sodium Hydroxide (Sodium Hydroxide)

Sodium Hydroxide is a highly alkaline and reactive ingredient, often used as a pH Adjuster to neutralise ingredients. The most common use for Sodium Hydroxide in personal care products is its use in the production of handmade soap. Botched Ink® uses Sodium Hydroxide to adjust the pH making the solution kinder to the skin
