hazards of neon face paint?

Post by llegend on Sat Apr 12, 2014 9:51 pm

Just wondering if anyone had experienced allergies with their customers with the neon face paint and if so how do you handle the situation? Is there one brand of neon face paint that's safer than others?

I would hate to put something unsafe on children.

Thank you

Read the labels. Most UV reactive paints do say NOT FOR COSMETIC USE on them. Most people still put them on skin, but the labeling generally says not to.

There are changes to the UV products as the FDA apparently has approved some ingredients recently... but I don`t know all the specifics. Several brands have stated they are changing their products to the new approved/compliant ingredients.

Read the MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheets) for each brand to make yourself aware of any stated restrictions - this is what your insurance underwriter is going to refer to if you ever get a client with a reaction who files against you. If you used a product contrary to manufacturer`s stated guidelines your insurer could dump you and refuse to cover any claims against you.

Yes Shannon thats why i was asking.  I've read the labels and material yet so many face painters seem to be happy with them.  I've known about 5 and none of them carry insurance but none have ever had any claims against them either.  Just wondering if anyone had a bad experience with them and if so is there anything that we could do to avoid any bad situations.     And its been at least 3 years now since the FDA approved some of those ingredients but there has been no further word.

yeah basically it is not approved for eye and lip makeup. it says hair and body fx, so that's where you should use it.

every person reacts differently to paint. I would never risk it on someone elses child, but I do risk it on my own kids because it looks cute.

try some brands that are equally bright, though not necessarily neon.

Tag "regular light green" is not neon, but has a delicious "pop" to it. If you use it along with other bright regular colors, you can get a nice effect.

I do not use neon paints. Not till they're approved officially.

I second JJJJJ's recommendation of TAG light green! I wore it on my lips for a mask painted in "show and tell", and as I wore it around the day I painted it I got a PILE of compliments on the colour,!
