Canadian grad student develops new tattoo removal cream
HALIFAX, NOVA SCOTIA — A PhD student in Canada has created a tattoo removal cream that may soon make it easier to get rid of unwanted ink.
Alec Falkenham, 29, says his Bisphosphonate Liposomal Tattoo Removal (BLTR) technology goes after the cells that absorb the tattoo ink, kills them, and the blood sends in new clean cells to replace them.
Falkenham recently signed a deal with Ontario-based Cipher Pharmaceuticals.
It will be up to the pharmaceutical company to get the new cream through clinical trials, develop a patent, and mass produce it.
