WARNING!!!!! DANGER!!!!! BLACK HENNA CAN BE FATAL!!!
The first thing to understand is that there is no such thing as black henna. Henna is the crushed
leaves of the henna plant and gives an orange through brown stain.
Any product that calls itself
black henna is using an ingredient other than henna to achieve its color.
Para-phenylenediamine is often used to create "black henna" temporary tattoos. PPD penetrates
deep into the skin, reaching the dermis (living cells) and passing into the blood stream. This is in
contrast to henna, which only penetrates as far as the dead skin cells of the epidermis.
Once in the blood stream, PPD may have effects on the kidneys, resulting in kidney impairment or
worse. There are published Medical Journal articles reporting injuries and fatalities that have
occurred from PPD's use as "PPD Black Henna".
Repeated or prolonged inhalation exposure may cause asthma, so those who
prepare PPD-based black henna are at risk as well.
