Lawsone (2-hydroxy-1,4-naphtoquinone), also known as hennotannic acid , is a red-organic dye present in the leaves of the henna plant (Lawsonia inermis). Lawsone reacts chemically with the protein known as keratin in skin and hair, in a process known as Michael addition, resulting in a strong permanent stain.

The leaves grow opposite each other on the stem and are glabrous, sub-sessile, elliptical and lanceolate. Henna flowers are white and fruits are small, brownish round capsules.
