People with unwanted tattoo often search the Internet looking for inexpensive ways to remove a tattoo. This is the reason tattoo removal creams are searched by a lot of people.
Many of our website users have often asked about profade tattoo removal cream and that is why we decided to dig out all possible information about this product and present it in this Profade Review.
What Is Profade?
Profade is a tattoo removal cream manufactured by a company in Spain called 500 cosmetics.
It seems this is well known company in Spain that manufacturers healthy and beauty products.
According to the company all its products are manufactured to international standards.
Profade is marketed as a cream that fades away colored tattoos. The product contains 3 creams.
The first cream is used to make the tattoo ready for removal.
The second cream is used to break the tattoo ink.
The third cream is used to erase the tattoo.
We tried to browse the website 500cosmetics.com however we were unable to browse the English version of the site.
Only the Spanish version of the website was viewable.
According to the company Profade creams are lightweight, non-irritating and non-abrasive.
Although the manufacturer claims that it is a 100% natural product without any abrasive material, however we found that one of the ingredients in cream 2 is salicylic acid.
This is why we decided to get the details of the ingredients of each of the 3 creams.
What Are The Ingredients In the Creams?
Given below are the ingredients for each of the 3 creams.
Cream 1: water, glycerine, polymeth-acrylates - propylene glycol, prunus armeniaca (apricot), seed powder, dmdm hydantion - lodopropynyl butylcarbamate, lavendula angustifolia(lavendar)extract, polysorbate, carbomer, aloe barbadensis gel, disodium edta, melaleuca alternifolia(tea tree)leaf oil, chamomile extract, rosemary extract, orange peel extract, sodium hyaluronate, sage extract, horsetail extract, honey extract, tocopheryl acetate, benzyl alcohol and fragrance.
Cream 2: water, cetil alcohol, isopropyl myristate, steareth-2, sucrose cocoate, butanediol, niacinamide, stearyl alcohol, salicylic acid, aloe barbadensis leaf juice, rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) leaf extract, sweet almond (prunus amygdalus dulcis)extract, vitis vinifera(grape)seed oil, salvia officinalis (sage) leaf extract, sodium citrate, citrus medica limonum (lemon) extract, sodium hyaluronate, honey, sodium metabisulfite, dipotassium glycyrrhizate, dimethicone, phenoxyethanol, bisabolol, methylparaben, butylparaben, ethylparaben, propylparaben and fragrance.
Cream 3: water, stearic acid, alcohol cetyl, alcohol, gliceryl stearate, butylene glycol, propylene glyicol, triethanolamine, glycerin, sweet almond oil, methylparaben, jojoba oil, propylparaben, aloe vera gel, fragrance, witch hazel distillate(hamamelis virginiana) extract, castor oil, tocopheryl acetate (vitamin E), butycropermum paklii (shea butter) extract, glycine soja (soybean) oil and dimethicone.
It is evident from the ingredients that the creams contain a lot of chemical substances and some natural substances also.
Mere presence of some natural ingredients cannot make it a natural product. Surely, profade is not a 100% natural product.
How To Use The Three Profade Creams?
Take some clean water and soap and rinse the area where the unwanted tattoo is located.
Now take Profade cream 1 and apply it over the tattoo and massage with your fingers so that the tattoo is prepared for removal.
Subsequently wash the area with water and clear the cream.
Now take considerable amount of cream 2 and apply it over the tattoo area as a fine layer of cream.
Let the cream dry for 10 minutes so that it penetrates deep inside and starts to break the ink particles.
In case you experience any kind of irritation then you can remove the cream and consult your doctor.
Take cream 3 and apply a thin layer of it over the tattoo.
Let the cream work for 10 minutes before you wash and remove it.
This 3 step process needs to be done twice a day. According to the manufacturer, it takes 3 to 9 months for the tattoos to fade.
Pros And Cons
Now that we have taken a look at the ingredients lets discuss the pros and cons of the profade creams
The profade tattoo removal system has been formulated so that it is effective for all colors.
With profade you can remove tattoos at home and there is no need to visit a clinic.
This system is much cheaper than laser tattoo removal.
The product can be purchased without any prescription and no special post treatment medication is required.
This system works for all types of skins without any side effects.
The product contains salicylic acid which is harmful because it damages your skin.
All the 3 creams contain many chemical substances.
The product only fades tattoos and does not remove it completely.
While the product says that there are no side effects however users have reported skin irritation.
Since the product uses salicylic acid therefore chances of scarring cannot be rules out.
There are no guarantees as far as tattoo removal is concerned.
One Pack of the product costs 60 dollars. Cost of 6 to 9 month's supply will add up to be quite a bit.
What Are Users Saying About This Product?
Firstly, when we searched some of the normal websites that were selling this product we could hardly find and user reviews.
However, we did manage to find some reviews at Amazon.
Most of the reviews indicated that customers were not happy with the product.
The product website claims that users will start seeing the results from the first application of the cream itself.
There were user reviews at amazon that indicated that there was no fading at all even after use for several weeks.
Some users indicated that they did not see any change in to tattoo colors even after three months of use.
There were only one or two users who indicated some fading of the tattoo after six months use.
Also it seems the cost of using the Profade Tattoo Removal Cream for six months is substantial, although lesser than cost of laser treatment.
Many users mentioned that the three creams were filled with chemicals and only some natural ingredients like tea tree oil and oil vera have been included so that product can be marketed as a natural product.
Based on the user reviews we can easily say that this product is not effective for tattoo removal.
