How is Henna Powder Made? Simple Guide by Shiv Agro Industries

Henna Powder Making


Let's explore how the henna powder is made by Shiv Agro Industries. It's a cool beauty thing that comes from henna leaves. We'll show you how we do it step by step to make it awesome!


Harvesting, Drying, Washing:

Our journey commences by selecting only the finest henna leaves, with a focus on quality. Each leaf undergoes meticulous harvesting, drying, and a thorough washing process to ensure the purity of our raw material. Drying methods can vary, but common approaches include spreading the leaves on mats in well-ventilated areas or using dehydrators at low temperatures.


Shade Drying for Power:

It is crucial to preserve the powerful coloring agent, lawsone, in our henna powder production process. To achieve this, we carefully dry the washed leaves in the shade while avoiding any exposure to direct sunlight, which could diminish the henna's effectiveness. Our priority is to create a controlled environment that will maximize color retention.


Grinding and Sifting for Smoothness:

After the henna leaves are thoroughly dried, they undergo a transformation process. The leaves are finely ground into a powder by using precision grinders or mills. This powder is then carefully sifted through a fine mesh sieve to ensure a smooth and silky consistency, removing any coarse particles or veins that may remain.


Optional Extra Steps:

For those who are looking for a stronger henna stain, Shiv Agro Industries provides an optional step of further sieving to create varying grades based on particle size. Additionally, certain batches may undergo a brief sun-curing process, which adds an extra layer of care to enhance colour release. However, this step requires meticulous monitoring to avoid overexposure and maintain the integrity of the henna powder.


Packing it Right:

The final product, now transformed into powdered form, is packaged with precision in airtight containers by Shiv Agro Industries. This crucial step safeguards against moisture absorption, ensuring the longevity and sustained quality of our henna powder.


Storing Wisely:

To guarantee an optimal shelf life, Shiv Agro Industries recommends storing the packaged henna powder in a cool, dark, and dry environment. This storage wisdom ensures that end users receive a product that stands the test of time, both in terms of quality and effectiveness.
