Question: On 9/22/10 2:36 AM
I have a potential client that I have some questions about her allergies. She is allergic to Phenylenediamine; an ingredient in hair dye. Is this ingredient in "Kolorsourse"? Also she is allergic to rubber (which I use Latex gloves) (or I use latex free gloves on clients allergic to latex) and she is also allergic to petroleum. SHOULD I EVEN CONSIDER HER FOR A CLIENT? I have another potnetial client that has "Leiden Factor 5" ; I feel that this would be a very risky client? When I looked it up, this is what I found; It I the most common hereditary blood disorder in the U.S.. It is present in 5% of Americans. Would you consider either of these people for permanent makeup?
Thank-you for your time & input (ERM)

- Phenylenediamine: Our Kolorsource pigments do not contain phenylenediamine.
- I have seen a patient who was allergic to petrolatum. The question is if they are allergic to Vaseline which contains a fragrance rather than petrolatum. I spoke with the Vaseline people and they Vaseline is not for use around the eyes because of the fragrance. I rather doubt she would be allergic to petrolatum (pure).
- Latex Allergy: Even if you use “latex free” gloves, your client could still have an allergic reaction to the gloves. Why? Because the same chemical is used to cure “non-latex” gloves as latex gloves.
- Leiden Factor 5: I haven’t seen these clients. But I am well aware of hypercoagulable disorders and their problems with deep venous thrombosis.
