Parents Beware Of Face Paints w/ High Lead Content


This is Brooke Goodrich. I am hoping you are able to help me. Recently in the news, like today, the report of lead levels in kids face paint has been reported.

With Halloween rapidly approaching, I am hoping you are able to put something on your blog to inform people.

I went to www.medicalnewstoday.com and have where they have reported 10 out of 10 children's face paints contained lead at levels between .05 and .065 parts per million (ppm).

Also, 6 out of 10 children's face paints contained nickel, cobalt and or/chromium at levels between 1.6 and 120 ppm (this is much higher than the industry safety stand of 1 ppm said the report)

There's much more, but I feel, as a mother of a 4 year old who was going to face paint, that this information is valuable and time censored. So please, if you can find anything to put on the blog to help warn parents of the dangers of the face paint, I certainly would be grateful.

Thank you,

Brooke Goodrich

Thanks Brooke. I have two children ages 5 and 2 and never painted their faces because I heard it was dangerous, but I never realized how bad it was. Thanks for the information. YOU are a great mother and the world needs more people like you who care!!
