During pregnancy many physiological and biochemical changes occur. This makes the body much more sensitive. For this reason the gynaecologist should be the one who authorizes the use of Naturtint. Prior to application is it necessary to carry out the allergy test. Resorcinol Colouring : It is potentially irritating to the scalp. Parabens : Certain hormonal behaviour has been observed in parabens in laboratory test systems and in animals, but these are between thousands and millions of times weaker than the activity of natural hormones. * Silicones: These are inorganic polymers which could clog the pores of the scalp, altering its secretory function. Paraffins (mineral oils): Chemical substances derived from petroleum with a covering action. Their negative effect is similar to that of silicones. SLS Detergent and surfactant is widely used in cosmetic products which has an irritating effect on the scalp. * This informative sheet is based on scientific rulings from the Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety, an independent body of the European Commission: "Opinion on parabens" (Ruling on parabens), adopted on December 14, 2010, and revised on March 22, 2011 and in the document "Clarification on Opinion SCCS / 1348/10 in the light of the Danish clause of safeguard banning the use of parabens in cosmetic products Intended for children under three years of age" (Clarification on the ruling SCCS / 1348/10, taking into account the Danish safeguard clause which prohibits the use of parabens in cosmetic products intended for children under three years of age), adopted on 10 October 2011.
