Good afternoon,

Conducting research using various databases that I have access to. Studies and articles report that it has been difficult to find products that can replace PPD. Here though are some products to inquire with further:

1. Natural melanin:

2. Common natural chemicals are listed in each of these products. You might wish to inquire about trying some of these that show up in many of these products:

3. Henna shows up often in my research so something to consider:
