Black Henna Temporary Tattoos Can Be Harmful From Chemicals

http://www.hennapage.com/henna/ppd/index.html


TEMPORARY TATTOOS, POPULAR AMONG CHILDREN, CAN BE VERY DANGEROUS.


Please do not let your child get a 'black henna' design. Black henna contains a very harmful chemical, PPD, which is only approved for use in permanent hair dyes by professionals. Look at this video which shows a little girl who received a black henna design. Within a few weeks she had gooey blisters, itching and slight pain. Her mother says there were 3 rounds of prescriptions and several doctor visits. The child probably has permanent raised scarring from the black henna design, which can also potentially cause lifelong hypersensitivity reactions. [Source: The Gilded Cat on Facebook]


On the other hand, 'Natural henna' is NEVER black, it is a greenish/brown paste and leaves a reddish/orange/brown stain.**
