A positive Impression

Henna is NOT Black! 

Black temporary tattoos called "Black Henna" may have para-phenylendiamine, a chemical based black hair dye, called PPD.  Blisters and itching start 2 to 10 days after the black dye is applied to the skin. This is a delayed hypersensitivity reaction. Poison Ivy rashes are a similar delayed hypersensitivity reaction. PPD is a strong sensitizer. This means many people are allergic to PPD black dye, and the more often you are exposed to it, the more likely you are to have an allergic reaction. Many people have this reaction to these PPD 'Black Henna' temporary tattoos. Others do not. A few people have reactions more severe than this. 

Para-phenylendiamine black dye applied as a temporary tattoo makes some people seriously ill.

Children are most at risk from PPD 'Black Henna.' Their bodies cannot easily process PPD. Many children have been hospitalized after receiving these temporary tattoos. They will have health problems for the rest of their lives.

If you are injured with PPD 'Black Henna,' go to the doctor for treatment to avoid scars. Tell the doctor para-phenylendiamine black hair dye was put on your skin, and that caused the problem. Ask your doctor how PPD sensitization will affect your future health. Show him where to find medical articles on PPD Black Henna. 

Traditional pure natural  is safe for skin and does not cause these injuries!
