Crayola Paints

Crayola did confirm in an inquiry posted on Delphi-Avoiding Corn that their tempera paints and washable paints (not the Color Wonder) are corn-free.

Crayola’s watercolors are also currently corn-free. The product used to contain dextrins, but after 1999 that practice was discontinued. So do make sure the Crayola watercolors are recently purchased.

Keep in mind that in the inquiries into corn at Crayola: “the computer system at Crayola doesn't give the ability to type in, say, "corn" and get information on all corn derivatives, and she doesn't have a list of ingredients in each product. She has to type in each ingredient separately and it will pull of a list of products with that ingredient. She checked on corn, corn syrup, corn starch, dextrins, dextrose, citric acid and xanthan gum for me.”

If you do have reactions or problems with these products, do let us know. Thanks.
