Parents were today advised to check the labelling on face paints to ensure that they are safe to use and are from a reputable manufacturer. The HPRA gave the warning today in light of the fact that one in five parents (21%) don’t read the product information before buying these products for their children. The HPRA states that parents need to be vigilant of the dangers posed by sub-standard face paints which, in the past, have been found to contain harmful substances.
