Ban the sale of products containing the chemical PPD (para-phenylenediamine).

Responsible department: Department for Business, Innovation and Skills

We are calling for a ban/restriction on the chemical PPD (para-phenylenediamine) which is found in numerous Hair Dye products. The chemical can also be found in other products such as henna tattoos, printing inks, fur dyes and other cosmetics.
This chemical is extremely dangerous and can cause severe allergic reactions, resulting in significant injuries to those who use/work with such products. Other European countries have banned this chemical from sale due to the risk it poses to consumers.
We call on the government to ban/restrict the sale of products containing PPD (para-phenylenediamine)
