All those vibrant and metallic colours are super attractive and super harmful. They cause extreme damage and should be avoided at all cost. Chemicals like copper sulphate, lead oxide, aluminium bromide, mercury sulphite are used to make these colours and they can be life threatening as well. The best solution to prevent our body, skin and hair from getting damaged is by using good old organic colours.

Not only that, they are also eco friendly. Organic colours do not cause any harm to soil or water body. Neither do they seep inside the soil and make it toxic nor do they they release chemicals in water tank, river or lake. There are two ways to obtain organic and eco friendly colours. Either you can buy them from the Ayurvedic companies that sell organic colours or you can make them at home.
