Is Naturtint tested on animals and is it environmentally friendly?

Furthermore, Naturtint uses biodegradable, recyclable eco-friendly packaging.

Can Naturtint be used if the customer has suffered severe allergic
reactions to other hair color in the past?


Allergic reactions vary and a skin sensitivity test must be carried out at least 48 hours before application. Naturtint Permanent Hair colorant is hypallergenic and has been dermatologically tested but in rare cases,reactions can occur. If the customer has previously experienced redness and itching as a result of previous hair colorants then Naturtint Permanent Hair Colorant is, in most cases, gentle enough and will not provoke any reaction on the skin test. Once the skin test has been successfully completed, the product may be applied. However, if the customer experiences swelling, blistering and/or burning then it is likely that they are allergic to PPD's and a skin test will immediately demonstrate this - if so then the product must not be applied. In these cases, we recommend the use of Naturtint Reflex Shine on Color Rinses.

What are PPD's?

They are p-phenylenediamines found in ALL permanent and some semi permanent hair colorants with the exclusion of certain hennas. They add colour to the hair but are severe skin irritants and in rare cases can provoke severe or extreme reactions. A PPD reaction would typically result in skin swelling, burning and blistering in the region where they are applied. Naturtint Permanent Hair Colorant contains minimum levels of PPD whilst Naturtint Reflex Shine on Color Rinse is free of PPDs.

Do hair dyes cause cancer?

There is much controversy surrounding this question but research does not prove this to be the case. PPD's are the main source of concern and as stated above, Naturtint contains minimum levels of PPD's. Another feared chemical is resorcinol also found in most permanent hair dyes but Naturtint does not contain resorcinol (or ammonia).

How can you reduce toxicity and feared cancer risks?

  • By using a less aggressive hair colorant such as Naturtint, this avoids ammonia and resorcinol completely. Naturtint is also free of naphtol and hydroquinone which are strong chemicals often used in such products. Naturtint Reflex Shine on Color Rinse is even more gentle as it also contains no peroxide and no PPD. We suggest helpful advice:
  • 48 hours before you colour your hair, remember to perform a skin sensitivity test, as a reaction on the arm is less harmful then a reaction across the whole of your head and face.
  • Try alternating between Naturtint Permanent and Reflex Shine on Color Rinse if Naturtint Reflex provides sufficient cover.
  • Drink lots of water - ideally 8 hours prior to coloring hair and continue high water intake for at least the next 12 hours.
  • Try a lighter color as the lighter shades contain progressively lower levels of PPD.
  • Touch up areas of rapid regrowth with small amounts of Naturtint Permanent Hair Colorant mixture and only color full head when necessary.
  • Try highlights or lowlights using Naturtint Permanent Hair Colorant. You may want the assistance of a hairdresser.
  • Don't wash your hair prior to coloring as the scalp's natural oils can provide a barrier to chemicals.
