Is Crayola non toxic?

Answered by Douglas Hiatt

As an expert in the field, I can confidently assure you that Crayola products are indeed non-toxic. This has been a top priority for the company since its inception in 1903. The safety of our customers, especially children, is of utmost importance to us.

To ensure the safety of our products, Crayola has implemented strict quality control measures and testing procedures. All Crayola and Silly Putty products undergo rigorous evaluation by an independent toxicologist. This evaluation is conducted to determine the presence of any known toxic substances and to assess if they are present in quantities that could be harmful to the human body.

The results of these evaluations have consistently shown that Crayola products do not contain any known toxic substances in sufficient quantities to cause harm, even if accidentally ingested or inhaled. This means that you can have peace of mind when using Crayola crayons, markers, colored pencils, or any other product from our range.

We understand that young children are often curious and may put things in their mouths, including art supplies. Therefore, it is essential to ensure that the products they use are safe. Rest assured that Crayola has taken extensive measures to meet this requirement.

It is important to note that while Crayola products are non-toxic, they are not intended for consumption. We always recommend that our products be used as intended, under adult supervision, and in accordance with the instructions provided. Ingesting large quantities of any non-food item can potentially cause digestive issues, regardless of its non-toxic nature.

Crayola’s commitment to safety extends beyond just toxicological evaluations. We also comply with stringent manufacturing standards and regulations to ensure the overall quality of our products. This includes factors such as color consistency, durability, and performance.

You can trust that Crayola products are non-toxic and safe for use. Our dedication to providing high-quality and safe art supplies has been the cornerstone of our brand for over a century. So go ahead and let your creativity flow with confidence, knowing that Crayola has your safety in mind.
