Is aquaphor safe for tattoos?
Simply so, can you put aquaphor on a new tattoo?
Once the tattoo is dry apply AQUAPHOR healing ointment, made by Eucerin. Apply a thin layer and rub it in, then dab excess off with a clean paper towel. Use the Aquaphor for the first 2-3 days then switch to a regular FRAGRANCE FREE lotion such as Lubriderm, or any other fragrance free brand.
Similarly, what can you use instead of Aquaphor for tattoos? Aquaphor creates a barrier that seals moisture into the skin.
- Cetaphil. Cetaphil is a dermatologist-recommended skin cream that is an Aquaphor alternative.
- Zinc Oxide. For a baby who is suffering from diaper rash or minor burns and cuts, an alternative to Aquaphor is zinc oxide ointment.
- Petroleum Jelly.
Also question is, when should I put Aquaphor on my new tattoo?
For the first three days always wash your tattoo before applying Aquaphor (you want a clean surface to apply Aquaphor instead of applying over old ointment). After three full days you may switch to a fragrance-free lotion such as Aveeno as needed.
