I ment to say children should not eat more than 600 blue 45gram face paints which in the case of my 18kg toddler means she should not consume more than 27kg woth of blue DFX face paint (and probebly tag and wolfe as well just to be sure)
As a responsible adult I will try to never have her around more than 599 of these paints.
and to put it in prospective

Interesting indeed.

I am not so much concerned about the risk of instant death than that of seeing those children developping cancer later because of formaldehyde (or other chemicals, whether it be in face paint or simply pieces of furniture, which sometimes contain some too).

Or the risk for the people working in the manufacture (possibly in countries where security norms are different from ours).

You sometimes do not have the choice (I mean, if you are painting dancers for a night club show for instance and you need the neon effect), but here, I feel a regular rainbow cake is pretty enough. To me, it's a good compromise between beautiful and safe for kids :-).

So I far as I am concerned, I finally decided on not buying neon. At least, to not encourage the production of those chemicals, when I am aware of their presence.

And thanks for the information you all provided I love you .

That would be one expensive dinner!!!!

I never did find out about red I got board reading the studies. I spent 5 hours plus I think it was finding out about blue. and have too many school projects in the works with the kids- sigh.

(Anyone needs to know about Saturn got that covered. they would pick the planet with 60 moons)

I thought THIS was interesting: Henna(3) 1965 Coloring hair but not eyelashes, eyebrows, or eye area.

So, not approved for use on skin??

I have been amused by this for a long time seemed like a good place to post..

No Tattoo inks are FDA approved for injection into the skin (Basically tattooing) despite what places may say..

http://www.fda.gov/forconsumers/consumerupdates/ucm048919.htm

although this site is right its particular ink has gone as high as possible and is approved for use on animals and plants.

Just when you think face painters and henna artists have problems...
