Yes, our face paint is 80% made in the USA. Our ingredients as well as our face paint is hand mixed in the USA and packaged right in our home state of Florida. Our tubes are made overseas. Unfortunately, there is no company in the USA that will make our style tube. 

Are they safe for use on children?

Yes. Our face paints are completely non-carcinogenic and are safe for children. As with any product, we recommend doing a skin test first by placing a small amount on the inside of your child's arm to ensure no adverse side effects. Do NOT use if allergic to latex. This product is for external use only and should not enter eyes or mouth. If the paint comes into contact with the eyes or mouth, immediately flush with running water.

Are they safe for use on dogs?

Yes. However, we do not recommend putting anything on your dog that is not formulated specifically for a dog. Please use with caution, do a skin test prior to use, and listen to your pet.

Are HARDY FACEPAINTS Hypo-allergenic?

We do not use the terms "hypo-allergenic" or "natural" since we feel they are used on many products as a generic marketing term. The FDA does not provide a definition or set of criteria for a product to be considered hypoallergenic. As the FDA website puts it, “The term means whatever a particular company wants it to mean.” People are sensitive and allergic to many different ingredients, even truly natural ones. However, our face paint does not contain any of the common cosmetic allergens such as fragrances and synthetic dyes. This is why our face paint is considered safe and gentle, and typically does not cause irritation or itching.

Can I use HARDY FACEPAINT if I have an allergy to peanuts or eggs? What about Latex?

Yes, HARDY FACEPAINT is completely free from peanut and egg ingredients. One of our happy customers has a severe allergy to peanuts and eggs and can safely use our products. However, our products do contain a latex based ingredient. If you do have a sensitivity to latex, we advise doing a small test patch on the inside of your arm.

Can I leave HARDY Facepaint outside?

Freezing temperatures will cause the face paint to freeze. If freezing occurs, let thaw at room temperature. DO NOT try to remove the wand applicator until fully thawed out to avoid breakage.  As with many skin products, we do recommend keeping your face paint stored at room temperature. Once applied, HARDY FACEPAINT will not freeze on skin. 

Can I apply makeup over HARDY FACEPAINT?

Yes, since our face paints dry to a smooth, smudge-proof finish with no greasy feel, powdered makeup can be applied directly on top. 

Why should I use HARDY FACEPAINT if I already use craft store paint or cork?

"Non-toxic" does not mean “safe for skin.” Acrylic or watercolor craft paints are not meant to be used on the skin. Just because the package says "non-toxic" does not mean that it is safe to put on skin. Products need to be formulated with FDA approved ingredients in order to be safe for skin. Many people are allergic to the non-FDA approved chemicals and colorants used in craft paints (such as nickel), and will break out in a rash from these paints. Watercolor markers (or "washable markers") do not remove from skin easily – it can take days to get the stain removed. The "washable" part of the name refers to fabric, not skin. 

Burnt cork is a cost effective way to paint your face. However, because the pigment produced is carbon black, a known carcinogen, it is no longer considered a safe cosmetic product. Also, if you don't moisturize before applying burnt cork, the burnt cork can severely stain your skin. Most moisturizers contain some sort of fragrance even if they are "fragrance-free."

Do I get a discount if I order several tubes?

Yes, if you order three or more single tubes you will receive 10% off. Use coupon code 10OFF3 at checkout for the discount to be applied. Also, you do receive FREE SHIPPING in the continental USA when you order two or more tubes.

Will HARDY FACEPAINT come off when I sweat or get caught in rain?

Our face paints are sweat and water resistant. This means that when you sweat or get wet, our face paints will not come off. Only when pressure and constant rubbing is involved will our face paint start to come off. In order to avoid the face paint coming off when sweat or water is present, we recommend blotting with a towel or article of clothing rather than wiping. 

How fast is shipping?

Standard shipping is First Class USPS and is 2-5 days. Average time is 3 days. Longer shipping times are for more remote areas. Expedited shipping is Priority Mail USPS which arrives in 2 days. 3 days for more remote areas. We do NOT ship on Thursdays or Fridays once the weather starts to dip below freezing. We also do not ship International during the freezing months.

Do you sell your face paint in stores or on Amazon?

We are currently available in a couple of locally owned hunting supply stores. We are available for purchase through Amazon Prime.

What are nanoparticles?

Nano particles are found in Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide. The long-term health risks of nanoparticles remain poorly understood. The likely exposure in ‘real life’ conditions is also unknown. But early studies have suggested that if exposure is high enough, nanoparticles now used by the cosmetics industry could cause lung damage , cell toxicity, damage DNA, and possibly even harm unborn children.
