Green DIY:: Organic Halloween Face Paint

Did you know that just because the Halloween face paint at the store says “non-toxic” doesn’t mean that they don’t contain ingredients that are horrible for you and the environment. Some of the chemicals that can be found in store bought face paints include parabens, BHA, formaldehyde, kohl and phthalates {which can disrupt the endocrine system and some are known carcinogens.} Yikes! I know, right? You can make your own Halloween face paint that is non toxic and organic. It will not harm you, your children or the environment.

What you will need:

* 1/2 Tsp. Organic diaper rash ointment or Organic Cold Cream
* 1 Tsp. Organic Corn Starch
* 1/2 Tsp. Water
* 1-2 drops of Organic Food Colorant


Mix all the ingredients together and apply to face with fingers or a washable sponge applicator and scare your friends.

What are you going to be for Halloween?
Are you going to use Halloween face paint?

    Hi one4earth,
    We used natural colorant and it didn’t at all.
