a natural plant product. Henna leaves are dried and ground to make the powder. The ingredient in henna that makes up the dye properties
is called lawsome (lawsonia inermis). Since it is a natural product,
there are no known side effects.
Our Henna is specially selected from the best
Henna plants grown in India and the Henna paste is especially handmade
fresh to get the perfect blend of colour. It has NO chemicals or dye
added and is completely safe for children too.
Henna's dye component, hennotannic acid, does not pass through into the
dermis, it only stains the dead cells in the epidermis. Hennotannic
acid naturally makes the brick/red/brown stains; it usually takes many
hours to get a good henna stain on the skin, and that stain is
Pure, 100% henna, with the help of heat, moisture and time, leaves a
reddish brown stain on skin. The colour is light at first, but
gradually darkens over the next 24 to 48 hours. Sometimes the colour can
darken to almost black, but basically the colour is brown. The shade
varies according to the quality of henna used, the ingredients of the
paste and the skin tone.
Leave the paste on up to 8 hours
or more. The longer the paste is kept on, the darker the design will
be. Afterwards, peel the dried paste off, dip a cotton bud in some olive or
Avocado oil and take off the remainder of the dry paste. Do not expose
your new design to water in the first 24 hours after the design has
been applied as the colour is still in its darkening process. The less it is
exposed to water, soap or rubbing, the longer the designs will linger.
The henna design should last 1 to 3 weeks
depending on the thickness of the epidermis of your skin and where the
design is located.
