Exactly. There are three pieces of serious hard evidence that that
dye is an AZO coal tar dye (paraphenylendiamine). Granted, its in low
quantities and green may not be as hazardous as black ... but ... if
it does NO good ... why does it have to be there? Its useless. It's
possibly dangerous (probably more so to henna artists than their
clients and most probably to the resellers who handle and sift large
amounts of it).
