Madder Phitofilos: what is it for and what color you can get
Rubia Cordifolia powder, pure and vegan ok, is an excellent concealer for obtaining pinkish-violet shades and above all it is useful for cooling the coppery reflections of the lawsonia (red henna). Its main dyeing pigment is alizarin, contained in the root of the plant. Compared to lawsonia powder (Red Henna No. 2 or No. 3), Rubia Cordifolia Phitofilos powder has a considerably lower reflecting power and for this reason it is recommended to be used in combination with other dyeing powders. Eg:
- if added to lawsonia (Red Henna N.2 or N.3) it helps to obtain redder shades and less copper,
- combined with the Camomile Blend, on the other hand, leads to apricot shades.
