Henna or lawsone is 2-hydroxy-1,4-naphthoquinone.(Ref: SIGMA ALDRICH
CHEMICAL CO. USA 2003 Edition). It closely resembles Vit K (2-methyl-
1,4-naphthoquinone). If the USA FDA wishes to ban henna it has to
ban Vit K as well! Both have almost similar chemical properties. We
all know Vit K is fat soluble.So does henna!
