Latin Name: Lawsonia inermis
Common Name: Henna
Part Used: Leaves
Active Ingredient: Lawsone (2-hydroxy-1,4-naphthoquinone), an hennotannic acid.
Product Details: 100% pure Henna. Free of synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, metallic salts, chemical dyes, adulterants; it is not irradiated or genetic engineered (GMOs). The powder comes in airtight, 100g sealed foil package within a box.
The lawsone in henna is a red - orange molecule which binds with the collagen in the skin, keratin in the nails & hair. A permanent dye when used correctly, the body art is temporary because we shed or dead skin calls, but the stain will be permanent on the nails.
Benefits: hennotannic acid is a strong anti-fungal, making henna effective against ringworm, nail fungus, eczema & psoriasis symptoms. Of course, here I am obliged to state that only a physician can diagnose diseases and prescribe drugs. (Good thing pure, unprocessed plants are not a drug!).
Henna powder must be stored in the freezer to maintain lawsone dye content.
