Is Your Face-Paint Kid Safe This Halloween?

It doesn’t have to be scary to transform your kids this Halloween!  Lyra is an wonderful European company producing high-quality, lead-free Face Pencils that we’ve long used year-round for great dress-up fun.  Indigo Forest has both affordable sets to choose from, Basic and Sparkle.

Unfortunately, 10 out of 10 OTHER US paints tested contained a range of toxins!  Read on..

“Ghosts and goblins are not the only scary things lurking around this Halloween: the lack of cosmetic safety regulations in the United States is pretty frightening, too.

A new report by The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, “Pretty Scary,: reveals that some children’s face paints contain lead, a neurotoxin, as well as nickel, cobalt and chromium, which can cause lifelong skin sensitization and contact dermatitis.

Creepier yet, these metals were not listed on the products’ ingredient labels.  Some products even bore misleading claims (like  “hypoallergenic” and “FDA compliant”), making it tough for parents to find safe face paints.”

This is taken directly from The Campaign for  Safe Cosmetic website, from which you can access the entire report.
