Uwanosora and non-diamine(non-toxic hair dye) movement
Diamine is a substance contained in general color agents and henna color dyes(which dyes gray hair in less than an hour.) At Uwanosora we try to offer the coloring options without the use of this toxic substance.
Because of its facility to dye any hair color at a low cost and the possibility of color variations, diamine has been used all over the world for many years, despite its harmful health effect.
Research shows that the use of a diamine could higher the risk of causing a non-hodgkin lymphoma, multiple myeloma, leukemia, Hodgkin's disease, breast cancer, liver cancer. In Finland, the general use of PPDA (para-phenylenediamine) has been prohibited in 1991, and a partial diamine use has also been prohibited in many countries.
The current situation in Japan is that the information has not been shared to hairdresser nor the customers yet. The color dye agent containing diamine, can not only harm your health, but could lead to pollute the nature as well. At Uwanosora we believe that in the coming age, we need to take responsibility for ourselves, and be conscious of each action or object we choose.
So you can maintain your beautiful, healthy hair after 10, 20 years from today - we will continue to pursuit hair designs with natural plant and henna color dye without diamine. Aug. 2008
