MixEz & Organic Colour Systems

The first collaboration for MixEz is with the New Forest based hair dye manufacturer Organic Colour Systems (OCS).

The patented MixEz sachet is a self-contained way of holding premeasured colourant and developer separately, which can then be easily mixed within the sachet after the inner seal is broken ensuring that there is minimum mess and no unnecessary oxidisation of the product. The product formulation is by the same manufacturer that is used on the client, ensuring a comprehensive and accurate skin sensitivity test in an affordable way which can be easily used by salons and clients.

A small disclaimer – The photos used are of my arm. At the time I was taking some prescribed medication for migraines, hayfever nasal spray and over the counter antihistamines. I do get eczema, I have no tattoos, I have never smoked and I have never had any henna tattoos.

The test took no longer than 5 minutes to do and this includes mixing up the colourant and developer together, looking for more cotton buds and replacing the battery in my camera.
