Jagua is a rainforest fruit that has been cultivated for thousands of years by Amazon tribes. It has medicinal values & can safely dye food, hair & skin a dark midnight blue color. On the skin, Jagua designs have a kind of magical & fun process of disappearing when washed off and then reappearing hours later! Jagua body art looks so much like a tattoo that many people are discovering it to be a great way to test out their designs before going permanent.


***Jagua is not the so called "Black Henna." It is a 100% natural product made by Fresh Jagua and contains no harmful chemicals such as P.P.D.
