The FDA regulates cosmetics via the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act and the Fair Packaging and Labeling Act, neither of which define the term "organic." In other words, if you see hair dye that isn't henna and it claims to be organic or natural, it's "most likely still employing synthetic ingredients for it to work," Dr. Aral says. The good news: Hair dye doesn't have to be organic or natural in order to be safe, and there are other ways to be both health_ and eco_conscious when it comes to coloring your hair.
The last few years have seen a bigger_than_ever push for natural and organic beauty products. Many consumers are under the impression that components found in "organic" or "natural" hair products make them inherently safer. Unfortunately it's not that simple, according to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration. In fact, not only is organic hair dye not necessarily safer than synthetic hair dye, organic hair dye simply doesn't exist.
