Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT ARE THE INGREDIENTS IN BLUE SQUID FACE PAINTS?

Blue Squid kids face paints are safe professional superior cosmetic grade make up.  They are hypoallergenic, paraben-free, non toxic, vegan, natural and FDA-compliant which makes them ideal for toddlers with sensitive skin. As with all cosmetics we advise that a small skin patch test is done before applying the paint as everyone’s skin is different.

The list of ingredients, which are printed on the side of the packaging, are as follows:-

Distilled Water 30%, Color Lakes 30%, Glycerol 10%, Calcium carbonate 8%, Stearic acid 8%, Talcum powder 6%, Propylene glycol 5% and Candelila wax 3%.

Several face paint manufacturers include Lanolin, which is an animal fat, in their paints.  However, Blue Squid replaced this ingredient during mid-2017.

 

Is this face paint lead-free?

Yes Blue Squid paints are lead free, non toxic and paraben free and fully compliant with the FDA.

 

What are the stencils made of?

The stencils are made of vinyl with skin friendly self adhesive on one side and can be used several times. 

 

Are the paints water proof?

No these paints are NOT waterproof as they are water based and therefore easy to remove with water. 

 

In the sets that contain glitter, is it gel or loose?

We have recently upgraded our glitter to be loose glitters (dust) in screw capped pots. We made this change because many customers complained that the glitter gel was very messy and dried out too quickly once opened.
