Hair dye is berry good

Evening Telegraph (Late Extra Edition) - - UK WORLD TODAY -

BLACKCURRANT-BASED hair dyes which use waste from the pro­duc­tion of Ribena have been cre­ated by sci­en­tists.

About 90% of Bri­tish black­cur­rants are used to make the branded cor­dial, ac­cord­ing to the man­u­fac­turer, with the berries har­vested in the sum­mer and pressed for juice.

A new tech­nique ex­tracts nat­u­ral colour­ing from the left­over skins of the fruits to cre­ate sus­tain­able hair dyes.
