: For some reason on me anyway it seems like the stain is just on the
: very top of my skin. Like it's not really entering the skin at all
: but instead sitting on the top layer like paint. After a few days it
: starts to look like it's peeling off in small areas. No lighter

Yes, it doesn't penetrate very far, but is entirely oxidized at the
level it does penetrate.
: What I find really fascinating is that while the stain itself
: dissapears all at once. If I want to remove it I can't. I've tried
: and can not remove the stain. Can not lighten it with washing,
: scrubbing, or anything. Normal unterped henna I can remove from any
: paret of my body within a day gently and easily if I want to.
I think because the terped henna is highly oxidized, the molecule is
extremely stable and is thus not going to react with bleach or
chlorine in the water system.
