How safe is Inkodye?

Inkodye is a water-based formula, designed for household use. Once washed, printed garments are safe to wear. Unlike plastisol inks, cyanotype and many alternative photochemicals, Inkodye does not use PVC, toxic solvents, iron or silver in its formula. 

Our products are intended for adult use, they do not feature child safe packaging. The chemistry of Inkodye is based on the same family of dyes used to color blue jeans and service uniforms. Please follow the safety precautions indicated on our products for optimal use.

Inkodye has been certified as having no chronic toxicity by a certified toxicologist. Our products conform to the Labeling of Hazardous Art Materials Act (ASTM D-4236). We are committed to the health and safety of everyone who enjoys Inkodye, which is why we recommend using normal precaution to prevent unnecessary spilling, skin contact and ingestion.

Our dyes are water-based and only require household soap and water cleanup. We recommend that you wash your hands thoroughly after use and/or use gloves to prevent prolonged skin contact and staining.
