There is this color run marathon thing that lots of people I know do-
there is no way I will run thru enormous amounts of cornstarch and food dye-
I am sorry I am not thinking this is safe at all-

Thank you for your email! The color is a cornstarch base and is dyed with food grade dyes. It is even Gluten free. :) Here is a list of the ingredients in our color: Blue Thank – FD and C Blue 1 Lake Low, Melojel Starch. Green – FD and C Blue 1 Lake Low, FD and C Yellow Lake 36-42 PCT, Melojel Starch. Pink – FD and C Red 40 Lake 36-42PCT, Melojel Starch. Yellow – FD and C Yellow 5 lake 36-42 PC, Melojel Starch. Our color has gone through extensive testing. In the Material Safety Data it says there could be some irritation since the color can form dust, but in all of the testing it states that there is nothing The MSD sheets show the Potential Health effects are as follows: Oral Exposure – Swallowing this material is not likely to be harmful.
