Can Bepanthen Tattoo Ointment cause tattoo colour fading?

Bepanthen® Tattoo Ointment has been dermatologically tested on tattooed skin in a clinical study. The clinical study investigated the efficacy and cosmetic performance of Bepanthen® Tattoo Ointment on the healing of freshly tattooed skin when applied 4-8 times daily over 14 days. All participants showed an uncomplicated healing process of the skin and there were no reported adverse events considered unrelated to the tattooing process. Tattoo colour fading was not reported as an adverse effect to Bepanthen® Tattoo Ointment in the clinical study1.

Same effective formula as Bepanthen® Nappy Rash Ointment.

*Based on the results of a study questionnaire, which was filled in by subjects during visits on Day 2, Day 7 and Day 14(n=56 subjects). Application of Bepanthen® Ointment 4–8 times daily for 14 days on newly tattooed skin.
