No wedding is complete without henna on the palm as it is said to be perfect for the bride on her birthday. Henna is also used to create fashion statement and for medicinal purposes.
Although henna obtained naturally is free of chemicals, the chemical mixtures added to henna during processing to increase the colour and to lower application time known as Para-phenylenediamine (PPD) is a powerful allergen and its contact with the body can cause serious allergic reactions. In some rare cases, this can cause eruption of boils on the skin.
How to identify real henna
1. Real henna is never black, but is an orange colour with red or black shade. Any extremely dark henna should be treated with caution.
Solution: Conduct patch test before applying henna on the skin.
