Go to any festival or fair, and you will see children with beautiful face paint designs. When my daughter was younger, I would worry about what these face paints were actually made from and if they were safe. She had her face painted so rarely, that I didn’t make a big deal about it, but I was still quite hesitant. I knew there had to be chemicals, like parabens in those vibrant colors. This was confirmed when I looked at Halloween face paint this year and wanted her to make her own.
It’s just not parabens in face paint but toxic lead too! The Huffington Post reports:
Perhaps even more alarming is the fact that The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics has found that 10 out of 10 kids’ Halloween makeup tested positive for lead. That doesn’t mean that every single makeup on the market contains lead but many, even perhaps most, will. As a mom, it’s not a gamble I want to take.
According to the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics: At least a million children in the U.S. exceed the currently accepted threshold for blood lead level exposure that affects behavior and cognition. Lead is banned from makeup in both Canada and Europe but it’s allowed AT ANY LEVEL in makeup in the U.S.
Face paint isn’t just for Halloween. It’s a lovely way for a child to feel spring with flowers on their face or fairies…but what to do about toxic face paint?

These face paints are amazing! I love the variety of colors. My son is ready to open a booth and starting making money painting children’s faces at the next school fair!
I wish I had these face paints when my children little. My little girl would have not been deprived, as she was, to only getting her cheeks adorned on a few occasions.
I am so excited there is finally an organic, green face paint for children! No parabens, no lead!
