Are You Ready For A PPI Love-In?
We’ve been selling PPI products for years and it’s no exaggeration to say that we love them as much today as we did when the first delivery arrived all those years ago! You may know all about their products and different brands – Skin Illustrator, Telesis and Fleet Street – but what may come as a surprise to you is just how big and impressive the business is!
Formed in the USA in 1978, PPI are an ‘FDA-licensed, cruelty-free and vegan-approved manufacturer’ of some of the make-up industry’s most highly respected products, but you knew that.
What you may not know is that the amazing products in their suite of brands – Skin Illustrator, Telesis and Fleet Street – are developed in-house by a world-class team of chemists and technicians and they develop and market advanced products, not just for the make-up and cosmetics industry, but also for healthcare, hair replacement and medical industries. In their own words, ‘we know ingredient safety and efficacy and we are licensed by the FDA (Food & Drug Administration) to manufacture over-the-counter drugs. We follow all industry and governmental guidelines for responsible manufacturing, thus ensuring the highest quality and safety.’
Perhaps the most well-known of the three main product ranges, Skin Illustrator was developed by award-winning film make-up artist Kenny Myers who noticed a critical need to have premixed colour available at a moment’s notice, especially when he had directors looking over his shoulder while he frantically mixed colours for final touch-ups!
The Skin Illustrator range has steadily grown over the years and it is used and endorsed by some of the world’s leading make-up artists including Greg Cannom, Joel Harlow and Kate Benton. PPI and Skin Illustrator joined in collaboration in 2000 to make the range available around the world and the brand has become a tour de force in the world of artistic make-up, learning and understanding what today’s MUAs need and delivering, every time.
Fleet Street Bloodworks is the industry’s leading theatrical blood manufacturer. Made from FDA-approved pigments, Fleet Street Drying Bloods are designed for use on both skin and hair and it stays moist looking even when it’s dry and it stays where it’s placed without migrating or dissipating as the day wears on.
In addition to blood, Fleet Street also do a tooth lacquer palette for the perfect zombie with the brilliantly-named colours Bloody, Dirt, Aged Blood and Goblin Green and you don’t have to worry about going home on the tube looking like death, their specially-formulated plasma soap gets rid of it all!
Telesis Research Group was created for the medical and healthcare industries and is designed specifically for skin contact. The range of silicone adhesives and thinners is proven to be both safe and highly effective in the medical, make-up and cosmetic industries. All products have been tested by independent labs for dermal irritation and they do not contain any known carcinogens or cyto-toxins.
The right Telesis product for you is largely down to your personal choice and the company say that there’s no right or wrong for any particular application. They are safe for use on skin and It’s worth nothing that the numbers on them (4, 5 and 6) are the order in which they were introduced into the market and not, as many think, their adhesive strength.
The mission of PPI ‘is to create and market the highest quality products available ensuring the confidence of the doctors and make-up artists who rely on them’.
The PPI range is amongst our best-selling products and as a loyal customer we can tell you that we are expanding our range and stock quantities (because it always sells out so fast) so that you never have to be without your favourite palettes or plasma, blood or bondo.
