Health & Safety
The materials used for our face painting, consist of professional grade, theatrical make-up
products. They have been purchased from reputable and long-established theatrical make-
up manufacturers/wholesalers. They meet all EU health & safety standards.
All our artists are highly experienced and have their own public liability insurance.
Children must have permission to be painted and accompanied by an adult and 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
- Chicken pox 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 the 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 the face of children under the age of 3. Some of our artists offer a small arm or hand motif for children aged 2.
We want everyone, young and old to enjoy our entertainment. Therefore, for the well-being
of all customers, we reserve the right to stop painting any person who becomes distressed
We will not paint signs or symbols or other designs that could be deemed offensive in any
Water based make up can be removed easily with soap or baby shampoo and plenty of
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
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 our concerns about the above, please let us know!
