Just for Men is a hair dye product marketed for men. The dye has been in use since 1978 and is manufactured by Combe, Inc. Claims of severe reactions or chemical burns resulting from the use of Just for Men have been reported. Even men who have been using the product for years have recently experienced severe reactions.

Reports have been collected of nearly four hundred men who have experienced serious chemical burns associated with Just for Men use in the past four years. These reports include adverse effects of:

  • Chemical burns
  • Bacterial skin infections
  • Itching
  • Redness
  • Scarring
  • Swelling
  • Weeping, blisters, and skin lesions
  • Anaphylactic shock (due to allergic reaction)

The main ingredient in this dye is p-Phenylenediamine (PPD), an organic compound used in hair dyes with a low toxicity level, high temperature stability, and chemical and electrical resistance. PPD was named “Allergen of the Yearan annual award voted by the American Contact Dermatitis Society, in 2006. The main concern of PPD is that it is an allergen and can cause serious skin reaction on the scalp, ears or neck. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health notes the following on PPD:

  • It is potentially capable of causing multiple toxic effects following skin contact
  • Studies demonstrate that it has potentially potent skin-sensitizing properties
  • Studies have also identified it as the third most common ingredient, following fragrances and preservatives, that can cause contact dermatitis

A class action lawsuit was filed in May of 2015 over these adverse side affects associated with Just for Men use. The manufacture of the dye failed to provide adequate guidelines on packaging about testing their products before us
