Why is Ancient Sunrise® different from every other henna and ‘natural’ hair dye company?
Many "natural hair dye" companies proudly proclaim that their powders are vegan, certified organic, non-GMO and never tested on animals. These companies believe that ‘greenwashing’ their products will improve their marketing position.
Ancient Sunrise® doesn’t just claim these things; we PROVE them through independent laboratory testing.
We send samples of every shipment of henna to a product-testing laboratory for detailed chemical assay including a LUKE II test. The Luke II Multiresidue Screen identifies the presence of a variety of carbamate and GC/MS pesticide residues. Approximately 300 possible pesticides may be identified by searches against 2 spectral libraries. These tests are far more sensitive and comprehensive than a purchased label; this test will pick up pesticide drift coming in on the wind from nearby location. We PROVE our plant powders are free of pesticides. We don’t take any exporter’s word for it. Our testing program includes run several other kinds of tests, including an HPLC test for lawsone content in henna.
We are committed to being certain that when you buy from Ancient Sunrise®, you know exactly what you’re getting.
Ancient Sunrise® is a small family owned and operated company and is managed by Catherine Cartwright-Jones, PhD.
