It is my understanding that the people who make pre-mixes make a
heavilly terped mix after withdrawing oxygen from the process
(inerting it), then package it in something that is absolutely sealed
from air and light. Even those mixes demise in time.

Some add metallic salts to darken the color ....

Henna is a dimer. Its staining capacity WILL demise over time. Cold,
terpineol, and removing oxygen from the mix will slow down that demise.

Problem with making pre-mixes and selling them in the US... it's just
plain against FDA regulations. They may ignore you. They may bust you.
