I often get asked about the face paint I use, it’s safety, and the brand. Here’s a little bit about my favorite face paint brand: Snazaroo!
Here is their safety FAQ off their website:
Are Snazaroo face paints suitable for sensitive skin?
All Snazaroo face paints are specially formulated to be friendly to the most delicate skin and are fragrance-free. All our face paints have been reviewed by an independent professor of dermatology and professional toxicologists. However, we recommend that before you start, you try a small test area on the inside of the elbow.
Are Snazaroo face paints non-toxic?
All Snazaroo face paints are manufactured using only ingredients fully compliant with EU & FDA toy and cosmetic regulations, and are not dangerous and non-toxic.
Are Snazaroo face paints suitable for Vegans or for Vegetarians?
Some of our Snazaroo face paints contain lanolin, an animal-derived ingredient and as such, our products cannot be categorised as vegan/vegetarian. However, the glyceryl stearate in our face paints does not contain any animal ingredients and there are no other ingredients (other than lanolin) which are derived from animals in our face paints.
Are Snazaroo face paints safe for pregnant women?
Snazaroo face paints are safe for pregnant women, as all our cosmetics conform to the cosmetics directive.
Are Snazaroo face paints tested on Animals?
Snazaroo products are never tested on animals.
Are Snazaroo face paints gluten free or nuts free?
Snazaroo products do not contain any gluten or nuts.
What to use to remove Snazaroo face paints?
All Snazaroo products are easy to remove. Simply wash off with warm soapy water or use gentle face wipes.
How long can I keep Snazaroo face paints?
At Snazaroo we recommend that you use your face paints within 18 months of opening.
Do you produce or sell rainbow cakes?
Here at Snazaroo we do not manufacture rainbow cakes as producing these require cutting the paints by hand and touching them. All our products are manufactured in a cosmetic environment and sealed with the cosmetic film which does not get touched by human hand until you, the consumer, peel it back to use the product for the first time.
What is the minimum age for children to be painted?
Snazaroo face paints are safe for all ages, but we recommend face painting for children 3 years old and over. If painting on younger children we recommend a small motif on their cheek, hands or arms.
Does Snazaroo face paint wash out of clothes/fabric?
Snazaroo face paints are water-based and will wash out of most fabrics. However, please remember that due to the high pigment content some colours may stain.
How long will the face paint stay on my face/body?
Until you wash it off under normal circumstances. Always remove paint before going to bed.
