EcoColors' PPD free (paraphenylenediamine free) non-toxic natural range of rich hair colors deliver professional results. Thanks to a gentle and nourishing emollient soy base, that contains no gluten, no propylene glycol, no paraben, no sulfite, no SLS, no ethanolamine, no heavy metals and mineral oils or artificial fragrance, ...and of course no PPD.
Some of these chemicals are usually present in other hair color brands and could trigger skin allergies after repeated exposure.
PPD is a chemical compound called p-phenylenediamine or Para-phenylenediamine and is popular in the formulation of various inks and dye products. It is an oxidative pigment used in the manufacturing of hair dyes to make dark colors such as black and dark brown. It does even rear its ugly head in herbal dyes such as black henna.
Should I avoid products containing PPD?
Because it is a skin sensitizer known to trigger allergies with repeated exposure as well as a probable carcinogen, it's best to avoid this pigment. Every day more and more people become allergic to this ingredient in hair dye products.
Does EcoColors contain PPD?
We do not use para-phenylenediamine in our range of hair colorants, not even in our 1n and 2n black hair colors.
EcoColors is a biodegradable natural plant base hair color enriched with natural ingredients such as flax oil, castor oil, and jojoba oil.
The infusion of natural antioxidants and organic extracts such as vitamins E and C, nettles, rosemary, flower essences, and grapefruit seed extracts make this base stand out from the rest!

EcoColors' nontoxic permanent hair color system has been created in 1998 by Lisa Saul, an expert in natural ingredients and Master Hair Colorist with more than thirty-five years of experience in the salon industry, after she suffered from rashes, headaches, and asthma due to the exposure to hair colorants and wanted a safer, more natural product to work at her salon during her pregnancy with her first child.
Since 1998, EcoColors has been consistently the best natural hair dye in performance and quality, gray hair coverage and condition of the hair after hair coloring.
Many people who were allergic to PPD or suffered from a sensitive scalp after using other hair color brands do not have an allergic reaction to EcoColors. We strongly recommend if you have a history of allergies to follow the "allergy patch test" instructions we provide.
Allergies surface over time with repeated exposure. It is still unclear what triggers allergic reactions.
EcoColors Professional permanent organic hair color system is based on the standard Level and Tone System and is available in 24 inter-mixable natural hair color shades. The color line is complemented by our range of Gel Activator Developers in 5, 10, 20, 30 and 40 volume.
EcoColors is not a temporary or semi-permanent dye, it is formulated for permanent gray coverage (even on hard to cover gray hair), and can also achieve up to 4 levels of lightening.
A DIY "at-home hair color kit" is also available in 15 natural hair color shades.
We also offer Eco Education classes for hairstylists and colorists wanting to learn the best way to use the full line of EcoColors Permanent Hair Colours.
Most people who are allergic to other brands do not react to EcoColors' range of hair colors. Please follow the recommended allergy patch test, especially if you have a history of skin allergies.
EcoColors is the only permanent hair dye of its kind in the world and has constantly been fined-tuned since 1998, and remains the clear alternative for uncompromising cosmetologists who want to go green and reduce their daily exposure to toxic chemicals.
