When it comes to tattoo numbing cream, cheapest doesn’t always mean best! Although you might find some alleged TKTX creams on websites such as Wish, Amazon and eBay that are selling them for half the price of Official TKTX, you can’t trust them. Here at Official TKTX we are proud to be the only certified distributor of TKTX numbing cream in the UK.
Some of the advertised fake creams are even called ‘TKT’. When looking to buy a numbing cream you need to make sure you are thoroughly checking every aspect of the cream and website. With similar packaging, the TKTK cream could easily be mistaken for TKTX if full attention is not given.
As they say quality over quantity. You’d rather be safe than sorry, especially when something is being applied to your skin. When you’re putting something on your skin, you want to know exactly what is in it. AVOID websites that don’t have the ingredients of the creams stated. Not only could it be damaging to yourself and cause major problems but it also affects your tattoo artist or aesthetics practitioner.
Although our Official TKTX tattoo numbing creams can also be used for certain aesthetics and hair removal, any website promoting the use of TKT cream before getting semi-permanent eyeliner is to be avoided. The cream is too strong to be used on eyelids and if used there, it could lead to serious complications.
When researching creams, take a look at the reviews. What are other people saying about the product and is it actually effective? Having real people vouch for the product makes a huge difference, and could be the difference between you spotting a real and a counterfeit cream.
Ensuring your seller has a certified certificate is also important. As well as seeing an authentic hologram on the box. The official hologram should say 100% authentic around the bottom that is wrapped around the side with the genuine TKTX logo in a waved circle.
One easy way to spot a site selling fake TKTX tattoo numbing cream is whether they sell the Green cream. The Green TKTX cream is illegal to sell due to the 7% lidocaine included in the ingredients. This percentage of lidocaine is too dangerous to be used. That is why we have the Yellow Official TKTX numbing cream which is the same strength as green but made up of 3 different numbing agents instead of 1.
As the only authorised supplier in the UK of Official TKTX tattoo numbing cream, we strongly advise, for your own safety, not buying from illegitimate companies no matter how cheap they are.
