Black Henna Compensation Claim Information
Henna tattoos are a popular choice for people on holiday or looking for a stylish temporary tattoo to complete their look. While natural henna is perfectly safe, black henna is dangerous and, here in the UK, is actually illegal. That doesn’t stop non-reputable businesses, and those who don’t carefully view their range of products, from stocking black henna.
How do Black Henna claims happen?
If you’ve been exposed to neutral henna, even if you haven’t suffered an immediate reaction, you could be able to make a claim for black henna compensation. Unlike normal henna, the black alternative contains hazardous chemicals which can cause permanent damage to your skin. Scarring, rashes and chemical burns are a common symptom of unsafe henna application. Not only can this be extremely painful, it can cause cosmetic issues and increase your vulnerability to certain chemicals in the future.
Can I make a Black Henna negligence claim?
Whether you’ve bought black henna in the UK and applied it yourself, or had the temporary tattoo done from a ‘professional’, you will be able to make a claim for black henna compensation. The black paste used in these “neutral henna” tattoos can contain powerful and toxic chemicals. These chemicals are illegal to use on the skin in Europe and the UK. As such, it is no surprise that many of these reactions occur abroad, in countries like Egypt and India.
