Jagua juice comes from the jagua fruit also known as the Genipa americana. Harvested in South America, Puerto Rico and other tropical places, south of the equator. It has been used for centuries for tribal markings and body art. Recently becoming popular in the west. So, how does this affect you?
Aftercare: the Jagua will dry flat and shiny in about 30min. To prevent lifting/peeling (optional): spray it with the Aftercare Sealant. After 3-4 hours, wash it off thoroughly with some soap and cold/warm water. The Jagua will “ghost” – the design will be barely visible when you first remove the gel. This is normal. Wait 24–36 hours & you will see the color darken & mature to a blue-black color.
Jagua comes in 3 forms: gel, juice or dehydrated powder. It’s really up to the artist, which form to use in their mixture. Jagua can also be mixed with henna to create many shades of browns, this mixture is known as hengua!
