All Face and Body paints are approved by the FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration). Paints are more effective when they are used safe and properly as the instructions follow. We do DO NOT recommend using paints on anyone under the age 3, or with a pre existing skin condition. Face paints can be removed with mild soap and warm water, or baby wipes. Some colors may leave slight temporary color if left on for too long. We hope you enjoy your Special Effects without after effects!
