What’s the colour made out of?

The colour we use is natural corn starch coloured with fully tested food and cosmetic dyes. It is biodegradable, non-hazardous and non-toxic.

Appropriate clothing should be worn. Please be aware that the powder should wash off, however we cannot guarantee this and advise wearing old clothes and trainers in case of staining.
