: just to others for money????
Henna is approved by the FDA for use on hair. It is not approved for
use on skin and they have recently cracked down on people being able
to import it as such. Since we are applying unapproved substances to
people, we are (so far as I can tell) breaking the law. It's not
like it has (or could be, for that matter) been found poisonous or
dangerous at all, it's just not been bureaucratically approved.
Tere's some great information on this Forum about this problem and
what you can do to help, just go back to the main subject listing and
you'll see it at the top.
