HENNA

Henna is a natural plant coloring for the hair which is an effective alternative to chemical hair tints. Henna is made from the powdered leaves of the desert shrub plant, Lawsonia inermis. Our henna is 100% natural, organically grown, and is free from pesticide residues, with no synthetic additives, chemicals, or artificial coloring agents. Henna contains hennotannic acid, a red-orange dye present in the leaves of the henna plant that, when, mixed with warm water, coats the hair, sealing in oil and tightening the hair cuticle to give hair a rich, healthy shine.

NANOTECHNOLOGY AND PARTICLE SIZE

Nanotechnology is the field of applied science dealing with structures 100 nanometers or smaller. A nanoparticle is a microscopic particle with at least one dimension, less than 100 nanometers. One micron is equal to 1000 nanometers. Based on particle size, all of our ingredients, including our color additives, are larger than 100 nanometers.

ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION

Inorganic dyes derived from iron oxides with no appreciable bioconcentration expected in the environment. They are not expected to be mobile in soil as they are soluble in water.
