Glob Natural Non-Nano Face Paint
My kids were thrilled when the box containing face paint from Glob Colors arrived in the mail. They knew it meant I would be forced to paint their faces, which they had been inexplicably begging me to do for some time. I was pleased to discover that Glob Colors seemed to be truly “all natural”. Their website lists such delightful ingredients as purple carrots, red cabbage, chlorophyll and gardenia fruit among others. This plus the fact that they are free of many of the toxic chemicals found in conventional face paints such as titanium dioxide and are cruelty free sealed the deal for me. I was excited to paint some squirmy, sticky faces.
I chose my youngest daughter’s 5th birthday party guests as my test subjects. There were only 3 guests, so it wasn’t going to be too hard, or so I thought. One of the girls wanted a lot of blue on her face, so that was easy as one of the colors in the paint kit was a beautiful blue. Two of the kids then asked for rainbows on their cheeks. The colors in the Glob kit were not exactly “rainbow” material, they seemed more like “earth colors”, aside from the blue. I attempted to mix the colors in an effort to get green and orange only to end up with a sort of “terra cotta” rainbow springing from a white cloud. The kids were just excited to have their faces painted so I let it go, only to discover an hour later when the paint dried it turned into a vibrant, traditionally colored rainbow! The paints were no easier or harder to mix than regular face paints.
Because of the excellent ingredients and the fact that, when dry, the paint looks great I would definitely purchase products from Glob Colors in the future.
And if you still haven’t purchased Easter Egg Dye and are looking for something natural, try out Glob’s Natural Easter Egg Coloring Kit. Like the face paints, the egg dyes are made from herbs and plants (annatto, radish and cabbage), are non-toxic and CPSIA compliant. They are packaged in Post Consumer Waste Paper printed with vegetable inks.
