Risk
The product poses a microbiological risk because the pigments are multiple-use (15 ml and 30 ml), and the absence of a non-return valve implies that there is no guarantee of preserving the sterility of the pigment, which is necessary in order to avoid possible infection (skin, subcutaneous and general) in the event of microbiological contamination of the pigment itself.
