: it's loaded with green dye and that it's harmful. Of course I'm
: concerned as I've used this powder on many brides. The thing is,
: there was never really a discussion on green PPD (I might be wrong

: myself to put other people in danger just because I don't have
: knowledge of it (green PPD).
: Would love to hear your take on this ;)
: Love & peace,
