How to have a safe and natural Halloween with kids!

Posted on 15 September 2014

Pumpkins, Ghost, and Witches...Halloween is almost here! As we have fun dressing up in costumes it's important to remember that a lot of the accessories, clothing and decor sold on the market is far from being safe for us. Here is a short list of ideas on making this halloween safe from chemicals and other bad stuff!

Face Paint

Spooky:

Tests conducted by the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics found that many contained heavy metals like lead and chromium.

Glowing Green and Safe:

Instead try natural ingredient based face paints or even natural make-up from your own stash. I know I have a lot of fun halloween worthy colors in my mineral make-up and eyeliner collection.


Nail polishes

Spooky:

Whether you’re going as a princess or a witch, the matching polishes are often filled with frightful endocrine-disrupting phthalates and volatile toxins like toluene.

Glowing Green and Safe:

You don't need to give up the fun polish colors for that finishing touch on your costume. Instead try these super Halloween colors from awesome  non-toxic  brands like Piggy Paint, which to boot are even made in USA! Say good-bye to harsh, smelly chemicals and hello to Piggy Paint...it's as Natural as Mud®! They have awesome colors from Orange to Green and even Glow in the Dark!

Costumes

Spooky:

Often costumes bought from the drugstore or Halloween store are full of nasty chemicals, starting with the fabric itself and even down the bag it is packaged it. You can smell the fumes from throughout the store.

Glowing Green and Safe:

Get creative and make a homemade costume with clothing you already own or from an outfit that can be re purposed as everyday clothing. We love this Alice in Wonderland dress, just add a few simple accessories and voila you can go from a cute regular dress to Halloween costume! For babies there is no reason to put them in a stuffy, polyester costume. Little babies don't need complicated costumes, keep it comfy and trendy with a Halloween theme outfit like this black cat romper and draw on a little cat nose and whiskers with mom's black eyeliner. Or try comfy basics that can be embellished into a simple costume like a fox or even a raincloud!
