This product contains ingredients that may cause skin irritation on certain individuals and a preliminary test according to accompanying directions should first be made. This product must not be used for dyeing the eyelashes or eyebrows. To do so may cause blindness.
WHAT IS PHENYLENEDIAMINE OR PPD? AND WHY DO PEOPLE TALK ABOUT IT SO MUCH?
PPD (p-Phenylenediamine) is currently an indispensable ingredient in permanent colouring since it allows to effectively cover GREY hair and, when used in combination with other colouring agents, it can offer a great variety of COLOURS. When a product of permanent colour does not use PPD, it has certainly replaced it with the Para-Toluenediamine (PTD), a substance that, like PPD, may cause allergic reactions.
The Herbatint Gel mixtures has an average PPD concentration significantly below the permitted limit.
DOES HERBATINT CONTAIN PHENYLENEDIAMINE (PPD)?
Yes, like most colouring products on the market (see above for details) but, as mentioned, it contains a small proportion that on average is five times lower than the limit allowed by European regulations.
I HAVE COMPLETED A CHEMOTHERAPY TREATMENT, CAN I COLOUR MY HAIR WITH HERBATINT?
In this case it is always advisable to ask your doctor, who can provide advice on your specific case. Many women use Herbatint a few months after having finished a chemotherapy cycle, because it is the most natural alternative to hair colouring and its effectiveness has been proven. In all cases we recommend that you perform a sensitivity test 48 hours before using the product (more instructions in the package).
I’M PREGNANT AND I FEAR THAT A PERMANENT COLOUR MAY BE HAZARDOUS FOR MY CHILD
In this case it is always advisable to ask your gynecologist, who can provide advice on your specific case. Many women have used Herbatint without problems during pregnancy. In all cases we recommend that you perform a sensitivity test 48 hours before using the product (more instructions in the package).
CAN I APPLY HERBATINT ON LASHES & EYEBROWS?
Herbatint is not suitable to dye eyelashes or eyebrows, and it is not intended to use on beards and mustaches. We strongly advise against inappropriate use of the product.
IN THE PAST I HAVE HAD ALLERGIC REACTIONS TO PERMANENT COLOURS WITH AMMONIA, COULD I HAVE THE SAME REACTIONS IF I USE HERBATINT?
If your past allergy was caused by the presence of ammonia, you can use Herbatint without any problem because its formula is ammonia free. Additionally, the Herbatint colouring, dermatologically tested on sensitive skin, shows excellent skin compatibility. In all cases we recommend that you perform a sensitivity test 48 hours before using the product (more instructions in the package).
DO HERBATINT HAIRCOLOURINGS CONTAIN FORMALDEHYDE?
HERBATINT permanent hair colourings do not contain formaldehyde or formaldehyde releasers, and thus our formulations are totally free from this ingredient.
IS THE USE OF FORMALDEHYDE PERMITTED IN COSMETIC PRODUCTS?
Formaldehyde itself is an ingredient prohibited as preservative in cosmetic products.
The European Regulation 1223/2009 allows however the use of so-said formaldehyde releasers, ingredients which may release inside the product traces of formaldehyde, called Free Formaldehyde. According to the European Regulation, cosmetic products containing formaldehyde releasers within the limits permitted by the European Union regulation can be considered safe for their use by consumers.
