Need advice before ordering?
This is a question we are often asked and understandably so because there has been much discussion concerning the term “chemicals”. Many materials – both natural and man-made have a definite chemical composition; a common example of a chemical substance is pure water (H20) and so no manufacturer can claim that any product is devoid of chemicals - in fact all matter is made up of chemicals.
As far as harsh chemicals are concerned, Daniel Field Natural Colours – Watercolour contains no active bleaching agent, no alcohol and no ammonia. Daniel’s Advanced Formula Water Colour contains no p-Phenylenediamine (PPD).
There are a great number of websites, media reports and other sources of information about the chemicals used in hair dyes and many contain conflicting information. Often, it is a case of reading all the material and making an informed choice as to whether to use a particular product or not. Daniel continues his on-going programmes of monitoring ingredients and updates his formulas wherever he believes there is a better alternative that will achieve the same outcomes.
Regarding shampoos, conditioners, styling products and the like, in keeping with all manufacturing processes these contain preservatives; otherwise they would have a very short shelf-life.
NOTE: When adding water to mix the dye into a mousse a very small residue of hydrogen peroxide is released. This residue is insignificant to the extent that it will not lighten the hair or damage the hair.Can't find what you are looking for?
