PPD (para-phenylenediamine, or p-phenylenediamine) is bad news.
PPD can cause exposure allergies, and it is singled out by Prof. Mokbel, breast cancer surgeon and researcher, as a key ingredient to avoid in hair colour.
Our entire colour range is 100% free from PPD.
Exposure allergies are allergies which develop over time, due to regular exposure to the allergen.
They can occur in anyone who is exposed to the allergen. They cause a contact dermatitis with symptoms appearing in the areas of skin which are exposed to the ingredient.
PPD allergy symptoms include:
- itchy dry rash and irritable skin on the scalp, eyelids, forehead, neck, ears
- more severe reactions will cause swelling and blistering in the affected areas.
That is why our entire colour range is completely PPD-free. We have also eliminated Ammonia, Parabens, Phthalates, SLS, Titanium Dioxide and Gluten from our colour formula, and added Argan oil, Aloe Vera and Ginseng Root extract.
Our “no-itch” colour formula is suitable for people with sensitive skin and will help keep you and your hair healthy.
The most amazing product for my hair, as I’m allergic to PPD, this colour is vibrant, left my hair feeling fresh and no horrible chemicals or odours. Absolutely love it.Leanne Robinson
An excellent choice. The colour is well suited for me. Application is like going to the hairdresser without really going. Very professionally organised. Highly recommend. I am HIGHLY allergic to PPD. Thank you!Nicole Green
I love this! I am super paranoid about products and chemicals due to a serious illness in the family. I want to avoid PPD. So happy with this – love the colour, no itch or stink. Colour is gorgeous and my hair feels amazing!Nola F.
