What is PPD?

Love Your Color is guaranteed PPD free! The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) describes PPD (p-Phenylenediamine) as:

p-Phenylenediamine is primarily used as a dye intermediate and as a dye. Acute (short-term) exposure
to high levels of p-phenylenediamine may cause severe dermatitis, eye irritation and tearing, asthma,
gastritis, renal failure, vertigo, tremors, convulsions, and coma in humans. Eczematoid contact dermatitis
may result from chronic (long-term) exposure in humans. In rats and mice chronically exposed to p-
phenylenediamine in their diet, depressed body weights, but no other clinical signs of toxicity, were
observed in several studies. No information is available on the reproductive, developmental, or
carcinogenic effects of p-phenylenediamine in humans. EPA has not classified p-phenylenediamine with
respect to carcinogenicity.
