Jagua brings the blue to henna's traditional red.
Blue Lotus Mehndi is proud to have been the first vendor in Birmingham to provide jagua to our lineup of body art services. This product has been an absolute smash, especially among our African-American clients and others with medium-dark and dark skin tones who want a bigger "pop" of color against their skin. Jagua also stains areas of the body such as the back, shoulders and chest much better than henna! It's versatile, cool and absolutely gorgeous.
Jagua is made from the juice of a South American fruit: genipa americana. It also produces the closest thing to a black stain you can achieve without using dangerous, synthetic dyes. The darker your skin, the closer to blue-black the stain will be. Lighter skin stains closer to indigo or navy.
