Snazaroo manufactures its products using all FDA compliant materials, packaging and processes. Snazaroo's factory and manufacturing procedures are also FDA compliant and have been inspected by appropriate federal staff.

Snazaroo uses no ingredients that do not meet cosmetic guidelines both in the United States and the European Community. For example: UV and Day-glo pigments MAY BE approved and used in German cosmetics but since they are banned by the USA FDA, Snazaroo does not use them. Glow in the dark pigments are approved in the USA but banned by cosmetic regulations in Europe, therefore Snazaroo does not use them.

Snazaroo also avoids ingredients that can substantially increase the risk of allergic reaction, such as fragrances. Their products were designed to be used on children, so Snazaroo takes every measure that they are the safest face paints in the world.

Snazaroo recommends never using any product on the face that does not specifically say it is FDA compliant and safe for use on the face as a cosmetic good.

Mehron cosmetic products are manufactured in the USA using only FDA listed materials. The raw materials that Mehron uses are also globally compliant with cosmetic guidelines, and their products are not tested on animals.

Mehron makes no claims as to the potential for allergic reactions; if in doubt, perform a small patch test by applying makeup to a one inch square patch inside the elbow. After 20 minutes, remove the paint with water only and wipe dry, then look for any reaction on the skin.
