The New Supercilium

Why are our prices increased?

We increased our prices for different reasons:
1. We changed the amount of Henna from 5gr to 7gr, so you get more treatments out of one jar.
2. In our supply chain we choose for more sustainable options. We are not there yet, but every change is a step in the right direction.
3. We fine tuned all of our liquids.
4. We improved our packaging with feedback from our customers. Less chance on leaking, less staining and better tools to mix your henna.
5. We invested in top of the notch new products and introduced a (free) education platform.

More questions? Feel free to email us. We are happy to help you.

Why did we change to the new Supercilium?

Read the personal blog from Supercilium Founder Manouk in which she explains why we made this big change.

Supercilium Brow Henna

What is henna?

The Latin name for henna is Lawsonia Inermis. It is a bush that grows in the north of Africa, the Middle East and India. Crushed into powder it is used to decorate the skin. Henna needs to develop for hours and leaves a red stain.

If you want to learn more about henna, you can read our blog post about henna.

Why is the Rosewater Fixing Lotion not on the website?

The Rosewater Fixing Lotion is replaced for the Eucalyptus Color Developer. You can use both products to mix the henna.

We always try to improve our products, and therefore we are always testing new formulas to see if it improves the results. This happened with the new Color Developer as well. Although we loved the Rosewater fixing lotion, we think this product is even better.

How long does Supercilium Brow Henna last?

The Supercilium Brow Henna stains up to 6 weeks on the hairs and up to 2 weeks on the skin. However this depends on your clients skin type and aftercare.

Does Supercilium Brow Henna contain PPD?

Yes. Almost all brow henna and other hair colorants contain a very small amount of PPD. Some people are sensitive to this ingredient and an allergic reaction can occur. That's why performing a patch test is necessary. PPD is a colorant, without this substance the color remains red and is unable to stain. The ingredient is necessary for the creation of henna brows.

When do you not use Supercilium Brow Henna on a client?

We advise not to apply Supercilium Brow Henna to a client if:

- They are pregnant or breastfeeding
- The skin is very oily and the henna quickly fades from the skin
- They already have very dark and full eyebrows
- The skin is irritated or wounded
- They are allergic or sensitive to eyebrow dye
- They have had allergic reactions after the application of a henna tattoo

Why do my eyebrows turn green/yellow/orange after applying the Supercilium Brow Henna?

GREEN/YELLOW:
If the paste is not oxidized, there is a chance the color will turn a light shade of green or yellow. 

To prevent this, make sure that you let the paste sit for 5 minutes before you start applying the henna. This way the henna can oxidize and reach the right consistency. 

If the henna turns out greenish after following these steps, this means that the henna is still oxidizing. The greenish outline will fade away after 30 to 60 minutes. It can also help to reapply it for 3 more minutes. 

ORANGE:
If the henna turns orange on your client’s skin, this usually means your client used tanning products before the henna treatment. The chemicals of tanning products in combination with henna don't go well together. If the henna turns orange, there is not much the beautician can do to fix the results other than completely removing the henna from the clients’ skin.

What does the Supercilium Brow Henna process involve?

Here you can see a step-by-step video of the full Supercilium Brow Henna process.

Remember to always perform apatch test48H before the treatment.

Step 1: Mixing ratio: one spoon of Supercilium Henna powder with 15 - 20 drops of Supercilium Color Developer.  Most beauticians use halve a scoop for one henna treatment. Stir well until a smooth substance is achieved. It’s important that the henna is not too runny, nor too thick.

Step 2: Use the Supercilium Prep Peel Gel to get rid of excess sebum, make-up buildup and dead skin cells to ensure the longevity of Brow Henna treatments. Apply one drop on each eyebrow, massage it gently into the brow for 15 seconds and carefully remove it with a cotton pad with Supercilium Pro Cleanser.  

Step 3: Apply a layer of henna with an angled brush. Press/stamp the paint into the eyebrow until all skin is covered, back to front as well. Make sure to create sharp lines. Correct small mistakes using a cotton swab with Supercilium Color Corrector.

Step 4: Remove product at the inside of eyebrows after 3-5 minutes for an ombre effect, with a damp cotton pad. If still too light, reapply and leave on for another 3-5 minutes.

Step 5: Remove the rest of the henna after 10-20 minutes. If you want to correct or lighten the brow color, use the Supercilium Color Corrector again by gently wiping over recently painted brows with a cotton swab.

Aftercare:

Don’t clean henna-dyed brows for at least 12 hours after treatment. Use as little as possible of cleansing products. Oil-based skincare products and scrubs also will cause color to fade.

How do you choose the perfect Supercilium Brow Henna color for your client?

We’ve created 6 shades to make sure we have the perfect shade for different types of women. To learn all ins and out about choosing the right henna color, we wrote this blog.

Here you can find our Color Chart for Brow Henna.

Why do I need to perform a patch test?

Patch tests can help indicate if a client is allergic to the brow treatment. A patch test should be performed 48 hours before the brow treatment, even if your client previously used coloring products.

Steps:
1. Prepare the henna and apply a small dot on the inside of the elbow.
2. After 20 minutes, wash off with lukewarm water.
3. If you notice a reaction such as redness, itchiness or swelling during the processing time, rinse immediately and don’t use this product. If no reaction occurs within 48 hours, usage is safe.

Please note that an allergy test cannot predict future allergic reactions. Please consult a doctor if you have any doubts.

How much should I charge clients for Supercilium Brow Henna?

Costs vary by market, we recommend you research salons in your area and keep your price competitive.

What is the shelf life of the Supercilium Brow Henna?

What is the difference between henna, tint and microblading?

Microblading is more permanent than henna. It goes in to the skin with a needle (0.8 cm). Microblading is suitable for people with less hair on the brows to create a shape for a defined look.

Henna is semi-permanent treatment that stains the skin and brow hairs. Henna is suitable for people who want fuller brow looks.

Normal tint stains only the hairs, it can stay up to 2 days.
