The subject of allergy-friendly face paint for kids arose recently on Twitter, specifically nut free face paint, so I thought I’d post about the three that I know about.
Usual warnings apply: always double check with manufacturers (as suppliers and ingredients can change at short notice), and perform the tiniest of patch tests ahead of party day if you can.
This is a British brand which does use lanolin, so is not vegan, but do not use egg or dairy. The paints don’t contain any nut or peanut oils, but because they don’t conduct any nut allergen testing on the products or on their production site, they do not make a nut-free claim, as some materials may, if only theoretically, come into contact with nut derivatives – although this is obviously unlikely. Soya derivatives are used in the products, though.
Ruby Red Paints
Ruby Red have informed me that their face and body points are free from nuts, peanuts and the other major food allergens from the big 8 in the US. They’re vegan too.
Awesome Fun Face Paint
This US brand of kids’ face paints told me told me that they are nut, dairy and gluten-free, as well as vegan. They describe themselves as hypo-allergenic.
They are available exclusively through Amazon (US).
