Nut free face paint

The subject of allergy-friendly face paint for kids regularly arises on social media, specifically nut free face paint, so here are the safe options that 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 they 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.

Browse and buy directly from their UK Online Store here, or via Amazon (UK) / Amazon (US).

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.

They offer a wide selection of kits as well as individual paints, and are available via Amazon (US) / Amazon (UK).

There’s a very dense discussion on their safety, ingredients and allergy policy on their website here, and you can also order products and browse in their dedicated online store here (US only).
