Here are some frequently asked questions.  Please go to the link for more details.

Is Color Powder Safe?

Safety is our main priority! Our colors are made with high quality cornstarch and food dyes. All materials are 100% FD&C and/or D&C grade and approved by the US FDA. However our product is not designed for consumption. If you would like a copy of the Safety Data Sheets please contact us at 888-252-6567 or email us at info@colorblaze.com

Is it harmful if you inhale it?

Although all the materials are food grade we do not recommend inhaling large quantities of color powder. Anyone who has asthma, is allergic to any of the ingredients or has any respiratory issues should exercise caution when participating in color powder events. It should also always be used in well ventilated outdoor space.

Does Color Powder Stain Clothing?

Our color powder washes out of most clothing. However, it can stain some materials. 100% cotton clothing is recommended and typical machine washing with stain remover, removes the stains. We recommend removing excess powder from clothing before washing and/or applying water.

Does Color Powder Stain Skin or Hair?

Just as with clothing we recommend shaking off all excess powder before exposing to water. Normal soap and water should remove color powder from skin and hair. Some color does tend to linger for a few days especially on blonde hair. If you are worried about staining, we recommend applying a moisturizer to skin and coating your hair with a small amount of coconut or olive oil before the event.
