Buying Guide For Fluro Neon UV Face And Body Paint

What Are Fluro Neon UV Face And Body Paints?

They are all the same type of paint.

They all light up under UV light.

A basic rundown on these paints. UV face and body paints are paints that have ultraviolet properties. When these paints are exposed to uv black lights they illuminate. The advantage of using uv paints over glow in the dark paints is as long as these uv paints are exposed to uv black lights they will light up and fluoresce. Glow in the dark paints on the other hand need to be changed for a long time in full sun and when they are in pitch black darkness they will glow and discharge. Using glow in the dark paint in semi lit conditions will not work effectively. We highly reccomend not using Glow in the dark face and body paint, because of their inferior performance characteristics.

How to select a good quality uv face and body paint. Most uv face paints for sale in Australia are made in china and sold as cheap Chinese brands or made in china and packaged in Australia. It all gets back to you get what you pay for. In places like china they do not have the same manufacturing requirements and standards as we have here in Australia. In Australia there is only a few companies that manufacture these uv paints.  Most uv paints for sale in Australia are sold as hobby paints or kid’s paints. These were never designed to be used as UV paints. They where designed to look fluro. These paints may be cheap and nasty. They crack like mud when dry, and have a funny smell about them.

I don’t know about you but I would not like to be walking around with a musky smell hanging around me. A good uv face and body paint should be made with a clear based or a white base that dries clear so that when exposed to uv black lights the paint can illuminate all thru each of the layers of the uv face and body paint. As far as we know we are the only supplier in Australia to offer a uv face and body paint that is made with a clear paint base.

Some UV reactive Paint colours work better than others when exposed to UV Black Lights. Yellow UV Glow Face And Body paint has the most intense look. Orange/Red is also highly visual. Until now UV Blue and UV Violet had very bad results (colour intensity) when near UV Black Lights. This is because most UV Paints were developed to be fluro coloured in daylight and not made to Glow - Light up under UV Black lights. Even our UV Blue and violets were not great under UV Black Lights. We realised this problem and have spent many hours perfecting the performance of these two colours. As of July 2014 our Blue and violet UV Face and body paints work very well near UV Black Lights, and we are proud to show the results.

 Choosing The Best performing And Safest UV Face And Body paints. When choosing a UV face and body paint, it is highly reccomended that you read the ingredients used, if provided on the jar.

Calcuim Carbonate. If the UV face and Body paint contains Calcuim Carbonate, the paint will give inferior results as Calcuim Carbonate is white in colour, and is used in paint as a cheap filler to minimize costs at the expense of UV reactivity to UV Black light. It would be fair to assume these paints that use it, were never manufactured to be UV reactive. Any UV reactive face and body paint that contains a filler may also crack when dry due the the infexible nature of the filler.

Urea and Diazolidinyl urea. Urea is animal urine, and is used in gardens to supply nitrogen to the soil. Diazolidinyl urea is a artificial urine and is used in some face and body paints and cosmetics to help preserve them. I find this disguesting.

Some people have a contact allergy to Diazolidinyl urea causing dermatitis. In 2005–06, it was the 14th-most-prevalent allergen in patch tests

We will never add any type of Urea - urine or fillers in any of our face and body paint range.
