Go Green Organic “Princess Perfect” face paint (2017). Tested with an XRF instrument. All colors (blue, red, silver, gold and purple) tested negative for lead (Pb), mercury (Hg), arsenic (As) and cadmium (Cd).
The XRF detects heavy metals down to single digit parts per million (ppm.) Interesting to note… Purple, Blue and Red tested positive for tin (Sn) at 781 (+/- 28), 402 (+/- 22), and 458 (+/- 24) ppm respectively. Tin is not considered a toxic heavy metal. The Gold and Silver colors each tested positive for barium (Ba) at 204 (+/- 113) and 146 (+/- 90) ppm respectively. Each color was tested for at least 30 seconds.
