Health and Hygiene
I use only professional paints and products approved by the EU/EEC and FDA for their specialist use. Paints include anti fungal, anti bacterial and anti mould agents. Equipment is thoroughly cleaned after each session. The highest level of hygiene control is strictly adhered to including a ‘1 sponge per face’ policy to minimize cross infection. Sponges are washed at 60 degrees C before they are reused.
Face paints are water soluble, they should be removed with water and a flannel and not kept on over night. Some colours may stain the skin slightly so use of a mild soap or baby shampoo may be required. The use of baby wipes to remove face paints is not recommended.
I would be grateful if dirt or food could be cleaned from a child’s face before painting.
I ask all clients and volunteers at events not to use or touch my face painting equipment under any circumstances (no busy little fingers in my paint or glitter !) this is to ensure that health and hygiene standards are kept to a maximum.
I use hypoallergenic paints but allergic reactions though rare, cannot be ruled out. I do not take personal responsibility for allergic reactions. A patch test will always be performed prior to painting if there is concern over sensitivity. Please do ask.
If required, a Risk Assessment is available on request.
