The ancient South American rainforests, known as the lungs of our planet, is home to thousands of amazing plant and animal species – it was also once home to the Mayan people who built cities that still amazes us as to how they were able to achieve these architectural marvels without the technology we have today. There is still much to learn from these ancient warriors, but one thing we know, is that they used our two main ingredients as a source of healing and strength. You can read all about these two ingredients here and here.
A couple of years ago we noticed that there was a shortage of high quality skincare products developed specifically for tattooed people in our country. Most of the products were imported, and thus very expensive and not always available. We witnessed the sudden emergence of skincare ranges designed specifically for tattooed skin, becoming more and more popular in the USA, UK and European countries to such an extent that today there are some top quality brands to choose from in these countries.
One day our founder, Aardt, stumbled across an article outlining the massive benefits of Dragons Blood and ChiaProtect specifically for the tattooed skin, and was immediately piqued. I mean come on, how cool is it to think that our products contain real Dragons Blood? If you haven’t read the article yet, the link is here.
From his office in Noorhoek, Cape Town, Aardt set out and started developing the world’s first Organic Tattoo Aftercare range that contains both Dragons Blood and ChiaProtect, with every single ingredient being 100% natural. This entire range has been meticulously designed to cater for the Tattooed skin in every possible way – whether you want to preserve your colours, protect your ink, or simply heal faster and better than before they have you covered.
Our mission is to help, educate and support people all over the world to care for their tattoos, their skin and their bodies.
Innovative - We are the first to market Organic Tattoo Skincare Range that contains Dragons Blood and ChiaProtect and are constantly busy with new product development.
Sustainable - Our products are made using sustainably sourced raw materials that are environmentally friendly and 100% natural. We are a proud member of 1% for the Planet, giving 1% of our gross revenue to environmental non-profits.
Transparent - All our products are made under the strict guidelines of The Soil Association. We openly publish all our ingredients and welcome any queries regarding our business and products.
Nurturing - Our products are nurturing by nature as they are developed to heal, protect, and care. It's not only relevant to our products but also in our thinking and actions, how we treat each other as well as all our stakeholders.
Let customers speak for us
I absolutely love this company and products!!
I have never used any products that are so amazing as Dragon skincare for my tattoos, and it really does make the healing process so much more bearable plus my tattoos look and feel amazing!!
Not only are the products superb but the attention to detail in the packaging and the speedy delivery service makes Dragon Skincare a no brainer for tattoo aftercare!
Thank you so much for my free gift as well, much appreciated :)
Love the Company and products, keep up the amazing work you do!!
My husband & I love this balm! It heals the skin within 1 week of getting fresh ink and preserves the colours beautifully. We dont use any other skincare anymore when we get a new tattoo done.
Really helps with itching and flaking, keeps the skin moisturised, but not oily. Love this product and will definitely keep using it for all future tattoos!
Super fast and easy healing, no itching at all. I have very sensitive skin and have to be careful what I use, but I had no issues with this aftercare balm. I'm also full of nonsense when it comes to buying products with nasties in and it seems Dragon Skin care ticks all my tree hugging boxes. Thank you for a great product! P.S. The packaging and wrapping is done with so much love and care. These people really care about their products and their customers. These extra details do not go unnoticed :)
Love it so much, I used it on my first tattoo and the healing process is going so well.
The product is very affordable and arrived beautifully packaged. An excellent brand - that is why as a Camouflage Micropigmentation Artist for concealing scars and stretch marks I have become a stockist and affiliate.
Seriously, these products are absolutely insane for tattoos and the healing process. Would 100% recommend. You have to try it to see and feel the difference from other tattoo balms and so forth.
I LOVED the product. From the arrival of the box to actual soap and lotions - they felt amazing! I can only imagine the relief it must bring on a bigger, deeper inked tattoo. It felt like nourishment - like I wanted it on all my skin, not just the tattooed bits. Can't wait to test out the sunscreen ;-)
Great product, my tattoos look sharp, and thoroughly impressed with the level of friendly service from Aardt and the team
Amazing product for the new ink you are wearing. I use the aftercare, the wash and once the tat has healed the everyday lotion. Another good thing is it doesn't stain your clothes. I highly recommend this brand
Great products, super friendly customer service. Aardt really takes care of his clients
