Brovi Pigments FAQ
Organic or inorganic?
Brovi pigments are a hybrid. This means that they consist of both organic and inorganic components. It is wrong to think that organic is good and non-organic is bad, or vice versa. Organic components are produced as a result of organic synthesis, and inorganic components are natural and mineral components that are produced as a result of their processing and enrichment. Hybrid pigments are contemporary types of pigments that most of the pigment companies manufacture nowadays.
What brow pigments are the most popular?
The most popular pigment from the original Brovi Brow line is Roasted Chestnut (warm brown). It is suitable for many different skin types. Also, you can lighten it up by adding a couple of drops of dilutor.
From the Brovi Lip Line, one of the most popular colors is Dusty Rose (cold pink). It is a very natural shade for lips that looks great on most phototypes.
For eyeliner, Brovi has one universal color - Black Square. Implant it superficially to achieve the best results!
What is the base ingredient of Brovi pigments?
The base of the regular Brovi line is hydroalcoholic. It also has glycerin (which helps a lot when working in the hair strokes technique as it has an ability to “hold” thin lines) and witch hazel extract (which is a natural antiseptic and skin toner).
The pigments from Brovi+ line consist only of deionized water, witch hazel extract and colorants.
Are there any harmful ingredients in Brovi pigments?
All pigments from Brovi brow basic line have aqua, Hamamelis virginiana extract, glycerin, and alcohol in their formulas. The only difference between the mixes is colorants.
In Brovi+ line formula, there is no alcohol and no glycerin, only deionized water, Hamamelis extract, and various colorants.
As you can see, Brovi pigments do not have any harmful or dangerous ingredients. On supremepermanent.com, you can see quality certificates from Russia and the European Union, which certify that the pigments are high quality and safe to use.
Are there iron oxides in Brovi pigments?
Since Brovi pigments are a hybrid (they have both organic and inorganic components ), iron oxides are present in them.
But don’t get scared of that! Iron oxides are absolutely safe and can be found in many other pigments, as well as in perfumes and some food. For example, yellow iron oxide is one of the ingredients in face foundations.
In Brovi pigments, we use red iron oxide CI7491.
Is there titanium dioxide in Brovi pigments?
Titanium dioxide can be found in different amounts in all pigments on the market (except in black pigments, of course).
In Brovi pigments, titanium dioxide is found in minimal quantities (not more than 4.8%) and is in the last position in the formula.
Also, in Brovi pigments, titanium oxide particles are finely dispersed, which means that you can use them when working on faces (coarse particles cannot be used when working on face skin).
What happens to the Brovi pigments over time?
When you implant Brovi pigments correctly and superficially, you will receive beautiful lasting results that will lighten up over time and fade away via a natural shade.
When your client comes back for a touch-up appointment, all you're going to see is a light natural shade.

Can Brovi pigments be removed with removers?
Yes! Brovi pigments can be easily ejected from the skin using remover solutions. All colors react to removal sessions well and fade away relatively quickly.
Laser removal for Brovi pigments. What color do they turn?
Six months after the pmu procedure, you can easily start the laser removal process of Brovi and get great results. However, if you try to remove any pigment (not just Brovi) a month after the procedure, you will receive a reddish shade.
Brovi pigments have lots of videos on their account that feature laser removal of their pigments.

Does Black Square turn blue?
If you watched the color theory class that we have on our website, then you know that any black pigment that is implanted too deep will turn blue. It’s called the Tyndall Effect.
Make sure to implant Black Square superficially, so the black color will stay black and not turn blue over time.

What is the difference between the Brovi & Brovi+ lines?
All pigments from the basic Brovi brow line have aqua, Hamamelis virginiana extract, glycerin, and alcohol in their formulas. The only difference between the mixes is colorants.
In the Brovi+ line formula, there is no alcohol and no glycerin, only deionized water, Hamamelis extract, and various colorants.
Besides differences in ingredients, in the Brovi+ line, pigments have a warmer formula, and color particles are much smaller than in the basic Brovi line.
The Brovi+ line pigments are more liquid than the regular Brovi line, which makes them perfect for the hair strokes technique and for the powder brows technique when you want to achieve natural and airy results.
How to mix colors from Brovi and Brovi+ lines
If regular Brovi pigments are too cool and saturated for your client, you can mix them with Brovi+ in a 50/50 proportion.
However, that rule doesn't apply to Gray Harbor and Freckle. These pigments won't change color when mixed with their Brovi+ correspondent pigments.
If Brovi+ pigments are very light for your client, you can add a corresponding color from the Brovi line and mix them together. For example, you can add 7 drops of regular Roasted Chestnut to 3 drops of Roasted Chestnut+ (you may adjust the proportions depending on the desired saturation).
You can mix the opposite colors from the Brovi+ line. For example, Gray Harbor+ & Bitter Chocolate+. When mixing these colors, you will receive a neutral brown color that will look natural when healed.
There is no sense of mixing Roasted Chestnut+ & Bitter Chocolate+ because both colors have a warm orange base. Also, you shouldn’t mix any color from Brovi+ line with Freckle+ or add corrector, because this line is already very warm.
What is an expiration date, and what happens if Brovi pigment expires?
You can find the made-on date on your pigment bottle (please note that in Russia, the date markings are different: the day is listed first, then the month, then the year). From that date, your pigment will be good for two years and one year after you open it.
If your pigment thickens, it doesn't mean that it's bad. Brovi+ can't get thicker because of its composition.
However, the regular Brovi pigment line has a complex composition, and what you might call “thickening” is a normal process of segmentation. What happens is heavy particles settle in a liquid base, and it looks like Brovi pigment is layered. This can be easily fixed by shaking your pigment well, bringing it back to a homogeneous state.
The layering of components in Brovi pigments
The layering of pigments happens, and it's completely normal. This process is called segmentation; heavy particles settle in the liquid base. Please note that segmentation only happens in regular Brovi brow and lip pigments, because of their complex composition.
However, the Brovi line has a special component in them that's called rosin, and this component helps to normalize the structure of the pigment. All you have to do is to shake your pigment bottle and the pigment will get back to a homogeneous state.
