UV face paint: In the face and body painting world it seems that UV and luminous face paint products uv, are controversial. It seems that there are various opinions on the safety of the products. Gary Cole from Snazaroo has posted his opinion on the matter in his FAQ answering the question of whether these products are safe. The subject is covered in the above link at length.

According to Gary Cole, of Snazaroo "The only FDA compliant UV paints for skin is Snazaroo. All other brands have a UV but it is not FDA compliant because of the pigments they use."

According to the FDA (The Food and Drug administration of USA) you SHOULD NOT USE THEM ON SKIN. There are however many products on the market and equally many people who use them, that don't have a problem with them. I suppose its all a matter of amount of usage and relative danger.
The chances of using such products often is in most cases pretty rare. The other point is that people using such products in clubs and raves are "exposed" (no pun intended)to far greater risks from the clubs and environment that they find themselves in. Considering all this there is quite an array of different products available. The UV Face paint designs of faces and bodies painted with these products create some amazing and different effects.
