Health & Safety

The materials used for our face painting, consist of professional cosmetic-grade products. They have been purchased from reputable and long-established theatrical make-up manufacturers/wholesalers. They meet all EU health & safety standards. We are highly experienced and have public liability insurance.

​Children must have permission to be painted and accompanied by an adult and this will remain the responsibility of the parent, guardian or host of the event.

​For the safety of our customers, we regret we will not paint anyone who in the opinion of the face painter, appears to be suffering from:

– Cold sores

– Conjunctivitis

– Chickenpox or any other infectious skin complaints

– Open cuts, wounds and scabs

– Eczema or psoriasis

– Severe allergy (e.g. nut allergy)

​We are unable to paint over any cuts, scrapes or grazes to avoid the risk of cross-infection. Neither can we paint over any sores, spots or broken skin. Although not contagious, eczema and psoriasis can often become irritated by face paint. Some individuals, particularly children and those with sensitive skin, will occasionally develop an allergy to face paint. Although this is incredibly rare, if you feel you or your child may be susceptible, please discuss this with the face painter before painting. It is always possible to do a patch test or motif on the hand to be on the safe side. The products we use are not recommended for use on very young children, therefore we will not paint any design on any child under the age of 3 years. Children aged 3 can have a small cheek or hand motif.

​We want everyone, young and old to enjoy our artistry and entertainment. Therefore, for the well-being of all customers, we reserve the right to stop painting any person who becomes distressed or unsettled. We will not paint signs symbols or other designs that could be deemed offensive in any way.

​Water-based make-up can be removed easily with soap and warm water. Some colours may temporarily stain the skin slightly if the skin is dry. Normal baby lotion after washing may help to remove this.

Clothes that have been in contact with face paint should be soaked in cold water before washing normally.

To avoid cross-contamination:

​- A clean sponge is used per person

– All equipment is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected between events

– Brush water is changed regularly

​If you have any questions or concerns about the above, please let us know contact us for more information.
