 Click to enlarge

Henna Vital branded Hair Dye/Hair Color products sold with a color designation of Black/Siyah Henna and an EAN/UPC of 8906043560117. No production date, expiry dates, registration number, agency approval designations or other codes were listed with this recall.

Please note: the image at left contains a box that may be slightly different than the recalled Hair Dye. The box at left features a graphic that states this product is “Export Quality” while the box of the recalled product lacks this notation.

The type of hazards presented in these recalled Henna Vital branded Hair Dye/Hair Color products include the reported findings that these products contain elevated levels of the chemical Sodium Perborate (calculated value to 12.8 %). This chemical releases Boron (measured value 1.7 %) and an excessive amount of p-phenylenediamine (“PPD”) (measured value > 7.3%, > 2% in final solution) with consequential risks of child and/or fetal reproductive damage, all serious health and safety hazards.

Specifically, this Hair Dye product could expose a child or fetus to excessive Boron levels. Ingestion or dermal contact with an elevated quantity of Boron may harm the health of children by damaging their growing developmental and/or reproductive systems either through mutagenic, genotoxic or other action. In addition, PPD is an extreme skin sensitiser and can trigger Allergic Contact Dermatitis.

Due to these defects and their associated risks, these Henna Vital branded Hair Dye/Hair Color do not comply with Europe’s Cosmetic Products Regulation.

Consequently, a stop-sell order and recall of these products from European end users has been ordered.
