Ingredients and Product Info
We use 100% Australian beeswax in our crayons.
We support local businesses (like ours!) by sourcing the beeswax from independent suppliers in the Yarra Valley.
Our crayons are natural and sustainable – we do not use paraffin (as it’s a by-product of petroleum), soy or palm oil waxes to make our crayons.
The other organic waxes we use are selected for the qualities they bring to our crayons, without compromising the safety of using natural products.
We don’t put any fillers in our crayons – so there is no talc, asbestos or any other nasties lurking in the box!
All of our ingredients are sustainably sourced and we make every crayon by hand.
We use non-toxic, food-grade pigments to colour our crayons. We mix the colours ourselves – this allows us to make any colour we can imagine!
Our colours do not contain: dyes, additives, preservatives or heavy metals (that’s why they wash off walls!)
We certainly don’t recommend Tinta Crayons as part of a balanced diet, but if they are ingested – they will just pass through the body.
Our food-grade pigments may make for interesting doggie doo colours (but we make no promises!)
Our crayons do not contain any of the usual suspects (wheat, dairy, eggs, soy, nuts or fish).
Please be aware that we haven’t completed any official allergy testing on our crayons.
No! The reason we don’t use waxes made from either soy or palm oil is because they are not sustainably farmed and have a destructive impact on our environment.
Our crayons are tested by the Australian National Measurement Institute and comply with AS/NZS ISO 8124.3-2012 (the Australian and New Zealand Safety of Toys standard).
