Testimonials from the Company:

"Hi, you sent me some info at one point several yrs back about getting some local stores to carry the hair dyes. I've at times tried several natural hair dyes to save some money & haven't found them to be satisfactory! So I think I could now positively tell the local health food stores my experience & maybe get them to try them. So how would I go about doing that? -H Harrington, Ypsilanti, Michigan"

"I am writing you because I wanted you to know how thankful I am to have found your Sanotint Light hair dye. I have always had allergic reactions to hair color and bleach. I have had several bad reactions and a few times ended up in the emergency rooms. I have used products that say they are gentle, natural, no ammonia, etc... But never ever have I found anything that I did not have a reaction to. That is to say not until I searched the world over and found Cosval’s Sanotint light with no P-PHENYLENDIAMINE. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! and my husband thanks you too. He had a hard time watching me go thru the ordeal of being ill if I dare color my hair, even if they foiled it not touching my scalp I still had reactions. I no longer am scared that I might have the allergic reaction of the past. NO ITCHING, NO HIVES, NO SWELLING, NO STERIODS, NO DOCTORS. The colors are absolutely wonderful, so rich and the shine is stunning. My hair feels great and the color last and last, the most fragrant clean smell no chemical smell. I had my hair dresser apply the product after she made contact with you guys and you gave her great recommendation, so we mixed a few colors and it turned out great. She fell in love with this product and will continue to use it and recommend it. I recommend this product for everyone with or without some kind of allergic reaction. My hair has never been in better condition. I am now purchasing your conditioners and silk mask and they are amazing. Its sad that the USA doesn’t have products that compare. As long as I have hair I will always be a loyal and thankful customer. Now I can even apply it at home.  Always......

P.S.  I want to try and get my favorite health stores to carry this product. I will be a walking ad for your company. The world of hair doesn’t have to be so toxic anymore. - D Stewart, Florida"
