Although no chemical is entirely free from hazard, these products will present a low to no heath risk, provided that good standards of studio hygiene are observed in their use and storage. All persons handling them should take precautions to avoid accidental ingestion, inhalation, skin/eye contact, and should be aware of any limitiations of specific products.
While dyes and the chmicals associated with their use are not highly toxic, they are industrial chemicals and should be handled with care. If chemical products get into the eyes by accident, wash thoroughly with water and obtain medical treatment. Prolonged or repeated contact with skin should be avoided. Wear rubber gloves and use implements to stir solutions and dyebaths. Inhalation of dusts should be avoided. If the dyes and/or associated chemicles are handled where particles may become airborne, a suitable dust respirator should be worn.
Obviously, chemicals should not be taken internally, and food, drink and smoking materials should be prohibited where chemicals are employed. The utensils used for dyeing should not be used for other domestic purposes (eg. food). A final suggestion: Children and animals are naturally curious. Do not leave open jars or bottles where little hands and paws may get to them.
