Dangers of black henna
If you see a shop or stall offering to paint black tattoos onto your skin, think twice before you get one. This could leave you scarred for life and put you at risk of getting a severe allergic reaction for many years.
“Black henna”, sometimes called “kali mehndi” or “piko” is henna that has been adulterated with the transdermal toxin, p-paraphenylenediamine (PPD), or in some cases this so-called henna doesn’t contain any natural henna at all. PPD is the main risk of black henna and it’s often associated with bladder and blood cancers or liver failure. When black henna is applied to the skin, PPD can cause chemical burns and lead to life-threatening allergic reactions.
How to make sure henna you want to use is safe
- Real henna is never black, it is an orange colour, with a red or brown tint to it.
- Always look on the label. Europe imposes legal requirement on producers to indicate on product packaging whether it contains phenylenediamines or phenylenediamines (toluenediamines) – these should be avoided.
- Make sure you ask your artist what ingredients their henna paste consists of. “Mehndi oil”, “black clove oil”, sodium picramate, metallic salts, PPD, or “henna stone” are those terms to raise the alarm.
- Smell the henna paste. If it smells like ammonia, gas or chemicals, it could contain unsafe ingredients.
