Here at Harris' House of Henna & Body Art, we use high quality body art products and we use only the freshest, natural henna powder available. We hand mix the paste ourselves with lemon juice, sugar, and fragrant essential oils such as Cajeput or Lavender for pregnant women. We are PPD free henna artists and do not condone the use of Black Henna!!
Henna is NOT black! If someone offers you something called "Black Henna", it is NOT henna. The black dye is probably para-phenylenediamine, also known as PPD, and can hurt you. Pure natural henna is SAFE. Pure henna has been used for thousands of years and is one of the safest things you can put on your skin, and reactions are very unusual. Our henna contains NO chemical dyes, preservatives or additives and is generally safe for use during pregnancy and with children. Henna should NOT be used on infants, or children known to have G6PD deficiency. Please consult with your doctor first if you have any concerns.
