Sodium Picramate in our Safran Hair Color

le sodium picramate dans la coloration safran

This Green’s key objective is to color your hair in a gentle way while respecting the environment. Our hair color Safran naturally contains a minimal amount of Sodium Picramate. There are many questions surrounding this compound, so let’s explore how, when, and why we use it.

Our pigment: Safran

Safran is an intense copper-red dye pigment that gives a warm glow to hair. It is composed of plants such as henna, senna (cassia senna), or manjishta (rubia cordifolia). Because this pigment naturally contains trace amounts of Sodium Picramate some doubt our values. Some groups consider it a problematic substance when it comes to the environment and human health.

Sodium Picramate

The SCCS (Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety) has confirmed that Sodium Picramate has no negative consequences if used below the recommended 0.6% limit. This Green respects these findings and our pigment Safran remains well below the maximum limit. The remaining composition of the pigment is sun-dried plants, flowers, barks, and water. This Green’s Safran has no negative impact on the environment or the body.

This Green: 100% transparency

So, why use Sodium Picramate in the first place?
Simply put, it considerably shortens the processing time. This is the key reason. Without this sodium salt, application time of Safran can take up to 4 hours to achieve the same results. We only use trace amounts of the substance – nowhere near the maximum limit. This Green would never use any added substance that would pose a risk to the environment or human health.
