Why Choose Derivan Face & Body Paint?

All our products are fully Australian-made and Australian-owned. Derivan Face & Body Paint is made to the highest standards and conforms to all government regulations and requirements (including Australian and EC cosmetic regulations, and Australian Standard 1647.3). You can rest assured that there are no hidden nasties or toxic pigments in our facepaint.


New Safety Standard EN71-3

When you are transforming your child into a fairy, a tiger a zombie or a pirate, some of the considerations you may want is a product that is easy to apply, has good colour and coverage. However, you should also carefully consider and be concerned with the things that you can’t see. What exactly is in the product? Is it safe to use on sensitive young skin? 


As of July 2013 a new global standard for face paint safety, called the EN71-3, was introduced via the Toys Safety Directive. Basically, this standard and testing ensures that the level of toxic materials used in the manufacture of these are limited to safe levels in a range of products sold for children including face paints.


So, What Is The Difference To Previous Standards, How Does It Affect Previous Standards?

Harmful ingredients have long been regulated in paint for children’s products, but these new regulations now require even lower levels and extend to more than just paint and toys. The new EN71-3 standard is in addition to previous cosmetic standards enforced in Australia and internationally for any product used on skin.

All Derivan Face & Body Paint products have passed these new conditions set by the EN71-3 so when you use Derivan Face and Body Paints products, you can be certain that not only are you using a quality Australian made range, but also one that is manufactured to the highest most recent national and international safety standards.


You also benefit from our expertise making the finest professional artist-quality acrylics in the Matisse range. Our face paint range is likewise full of bright, vibrant colours with superior coverage, that dry quickly and wash off easily in warm soapy water.
