I find it completely enlightening to know on a microscopic level
what is in the different types or brands of henna powder.
Weather it be green dye, grit, PPD Indigo or pure henna.
I have looked a samples of many of the brands you tested and though
I tried them and some I liked and some I didnt like as well, I could
never be very sure of the content. Sometimes suppliers wont fully
disclose that info or may not even know themselves what goes in at
the factory.
Very interesting work, thanks for making it available for us to
Perhaps it will raise the quality of what is being imported.

: I think the FDA ban has to do with 1) ignorance (no question about
: that) and 2) adulteration of henna imports.
: If henna is shipped as 100% pure henna and it is NOT 100% pure
: .. the FDA has reason to complain. For the bad news, see the link
: below and start going through the list at the bottom of the page.
: not done yet ..... have about 20 henna powders still to go.
: After looking through this lot, I hope EVERY importer gets a
: microscope and starts using it. If we don't DEMAND clean henna
: our suppliers, and show them EXACTLY what we object to, they're not
: going to send it to us.
