Safer Paints For The Little Ones

Natural Face Paint Kit

Did you know that most face paints mostly used during Halloween or to celebrate Day of the Dead are full of toxic chemicals? Shocker!!!

Yes, the same paint that makes children jump for joy because they get to look more like their favorite character is full of heavy metals that could potentially cause health problems.

Heavy metals like Nickel, Cobalt and Chromium just to name a few. When the skin comes in contact with these allergens it can lead to Allergic Contact Dermatitis (ACD). In this report by the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics there were extensive studies done about how and why this is the case especially in children.

A SAFER FACE PAINT ALTERNATIVE

I present to you the organic face paint from the brand Natural Earth Paint

This organic paint line was created in 2011 from an artist that no longer wanted her studio to contain toxic ingredients that were harmful to her household. “Our children’s paints are not only natural and non-toxic but also very high quality and can be painted on wood, stones, fabric, glass, paper and more.” – Leah Fanning Mebane.

This eco-friendly face paint kit contains six colors and three bamboo brush applicators. These paints are pigmented using fruits, vegetables and herbs to provide the cleanest formula possible.
