Do You Worry About Gluten In Kids' Facepaint?

5 posts in this topic

Hi all,

It seems like everywhere we go there is facepainting for kiddos. Do you worry about gluten in the facepaint?

Thanks for your thoughts!

Yes! You're not alone.

I worry about face paint also - so I haven't taken a chance.

Although, I worry about "temporary" tattoos too.

THAT might be paranoia :)

Uh oh I used finger paints with a kid I was babysitting today and there was an explosion, it went everywhere! Now I hope it was gluten free....didn't even think about it:P

I do worry about it but I always ask to see the face paint container and it will almost always have the ingredients on it and I have yet to see any face paint with any red flags. My son in particular loves to have his face painted and we have not had any problems. I don't allow any near his mouth though (really, that is probably best for any young child!). Some places do know - for example, in Disney World (of course!), they knew the face paint was gluten free.

My son is deathly allergic to face paint. It burns his skin like fire or a branding iron and he swells up real bad.
