HENNA AND JAGUA
WHAT IS HENNA?
Henna (Lawsonia inermis) is a plant grown at places like North Africa, India, Pakistan, and the Middle East.
How does HENNA work?
The dried leaves of the Henna plant are grounded into a fine powder. Then the powder is mixed with other ingredients to make a paste which is then applied to skin. The plant produces a red/brown dye in its leaves, which is great to dye hair, skin and even nails. When the paste is removed the design remains beneath.
At first the Henna stain is orange in color, but matures to dark brown over 12-48 hours. These designs do not wash off, but will fade over time.

What is JAgua?
Jagua is an extract of the fruit Genipa Americana tree, native to rainforest parts of South America.
How Does JAGUAwork?
Jagua works by temporarily staining the top layers of skin in dark blueish-black color. It is made of Freeze-dried ready-mix Jagua Powder (Genipa Americana Powder) which is mixed with 100% natural ingredients. When the paste is removed the design remains beneath.
Jagua Powder, Distilled water, Sugar and Essential Oil(s) (Eucalyptus/Lavender/Cajeput).
JAGUA is an unpasteurized berry and may cause an allergic reaction to sensitive individuals in particular, those with berry, tropical fruit or citrus allergies.
How long does Henna and Jagua last?
Henna & Jagua lasts up to 1-3 weeks, depending on the placement of henna, personal body chemistry and how it was cared for.
DISCLAIMER - BLACK HENNA & Chemical filled Henna (SOLD at LOCAL STORES/EBAY/Amazon/Sometimes Etsy)
JAGUA (safe product) and CHEMICAL BLACK HENNA are two entirely separate products.
Although Jagua produces a very realistic-looking (but temporary) dark blue-black stain, Jagua should NOT be confused with so-called "Black henna".
“Black Henna” is actually a synthetic concoction containing PPD (p-Phenylenediamine), a chemical compound that can be very toxic and damaging to the skin (such as kerosene or ammonia).
Henna Cones found at your local Indian stores are labeled as “natural henna”, but are infused with harmful chemicals for longer shelf life and quick stain. These chemical-filled cones are unfortunately still used in some parts of the world.
Please avoid Black Henna and Chemical Henna at all cost. It’s not worth it! Some of the most common risky black hennas are sold by the name of GOLECHA//Shehnaz/KAVERI/Kajal etc.
These products may have NATURAL HENNA written on it, but they are not.
