In reply to: Some thoughts on both sides of the fence, where the problem is that the henna *is* greener posted by Lauren on October 10, 2002 at 23:03:58:

: I think that the idea of what CCJ is doing is terrific.
: I agree with Noli and Maureen's arguments about the henna needs to
be
: correctly labeled as to when it is from. Especially in the case
with
: the newer powders, we are still trying to work out the kinks to get
: the henna the best we can, so an earlier batch may not be
: representative of what's available now.
: I don't think anyone's trying to say that there is a perfect
: achievable henna. Although- we have Jamila as a standard for
: particle size and cleanness, so it can be a darn sight better than
: what's mostly available. Being able to say to a manufacturer- Hey,
: look, I need it like *this*, not like *that* is a very valuable
: tool. Being able to set standards is useful and I see this as a
: beginning step in doing that. No more than X amount of grit, no
more
: than X particle size, etc.
: It didn't occur to me before, but I think Maureen does have a point
: about collection of samples. I sent in some portions of samples
I've
: received through the years in little plastic baggies. Yes, *I*
know
: I didn't do anything to them, but a manufacturer could conceivably
: complain that CCJ has no way to check, and that anything in there
was
: placed by me to soil their reputation. I suggest as a way to avoid
: any possible issue that test results be published when gained only
: from either samples in their original sealed plastic or samples
sent
: directly from the manufacturer or sole supplier. That way, nobody
: can complain, and everyone knows exactly what CCJ has, with no
: possibility of argument. This will limit the samples available but
: make the results much more meaningful without anyone having to
trust
: anyone, which apparently is in short supply.
