For those concerned about the safety of these products due to the labelling, we have the following statement from Diamond FX:
UV regular Colours or Neon-UV colours are available in limited range of colours which are :
With these "Day Glow" Colours, the dye is embedded in a resin and has no direct contact with the skin.
Regular Neon colours have never been officially approved for cosmetic purposes only so called phosphorescent colour pigment is used.
This paint contains a low percentage of Free Formaldehyde. (Under the approved percentage)
In 2000 it was approved by the FDA for use as a cosmetic item. USA is the only country in the world where such an item may be distributed labelled as 'for cosmetic purposes'.
Diamond FX had to be certain this colour additive was free of any hazardous materials. Supplier data sheet and independent laboratories confirmed this.
Diamond FX Aqua Colour was given to a dermatologist, to verify skin tolerance and to make sure, that the product would not harm when brought into contact with sensitive skin. The conclusion was that DFX Neon colours are harmless to human skin. The statement 'not a cosmetic item, not intended for cosmetic applications is applied to our products for legal reasons only.
But, since we were not 100% happy, we wanted to bring to our customers a product that they feel 100% secure and therefore we have since a few years produced 3 colors that are 100% FDA approved.
The special FDA NEON White, FDA NEON Blue and FDA NEON Violet.
This paint does not contain Formaldehyde.
These are special FDA approved colours that are full approved, for cosmetic purposes, may be used on every skin, only have a slight lesser 'blacklight or dayglow' effect.
The Special FDA NEON White can be used to transform every Essential colour into a dayglow colour, use a little more water, and brush it over as an effect paint.
