When the festival of Holi nears, the first thing that comes to our mind is Colours. There has been a lot of talk in town about the colours being used during Holi and how it impacts us. Especially for us females, the use of certain nasty Synthetic colours can be very damaging to the hair, skin and nails that we take so much care of.

Synthetic colours are also adulterated at times and can contain lead and arsenic which are poisonous. Also, synthetic colours may lead to skin reactions, rash etc. Not only that, but they may also cause your skin to become hypersensitive to the sun.

Synthetic Holi colours are often adulterated

Green Colour: Copper sulphate compound is green in colour and may cause temporary blindness

Silver Colour: Synthetic colour adulterated with aluminium bromide, a cancer-causing agent.

Red Colour: Gulal may be adulterated with mercury sulphite.

The use of mercury sulphite can cause skin cancer, paralysis and even mental retardation.

Purple: Synthetic colour may be adulterated with chromium iodide which can cause asthma.
