I haven't been able to find anything about asbestos in henna. There
is a big concern in India about the colored powders used for Holi
containing asbestos talc. When you see articles talking about
colored henna and then they show the market place with big heaping
piles of colored powder, I suspect it's Holi powder they are showing
and not henna at all.
Of course we all know that not all countries have the same
stringent regulations and they should stay with trusted suppliers.
