Safety Guidelines

Providing clear safety information is critical, as the well-being of professionals using our products is of utmost importance. All of our pigments are tested to ensure consistent quality, and above all else safety. Agulis Pigments only manufactures natural earth and mineral pigments—none of which present any major hazard when used with care, and by following the guidelines provided below.

Before use, please review any applicable warning labels, and follow instructions provided on the package. Additionally, please maintain proper standards of general hygiene—prior, during, and after using any pigment products.

When using powdered pigments, work in an adequately ventilated space to avoid inhalation of airborne particles.

As with any dry powder, there may be damage to the lungs through prolonged and repeated exposure via inhalation—avoid breathing the dust, and in the case of inadequate ventilation, wear respiratory protection.

Prolonged contact with the skin should be avoided. Thoroughly wash off any residue with soap and water after handling pigment products.

Keep hands away from the face, and avoid any contact with the eyes.

Do not ingest any of the pigments. Do not eat or drink while handling powdered pigments, due to the potential risk of ingestion.

Prior to use, cover work surfaces. Open pigment containers carefully to avoid spillage. In case of spills, thoroughly clean the area.

Powdered pigments are not intended to be handled by children; please keep them out of the reach of children.

Follow local regulation as it pertains to disposal of any contents and/or containers.
