I can't remove the paint from my child's face. What should I do?

In the 9 years that we have been in business, we just recently received a call from a frantic young mom of a boy of 4 years of age. She said that the paint burned his skin. Well, as you would guess we were highly concerned for the boy and understand how the mother felt. as our kids are only 10 and 12. So we preceded to ask her many questions about what type of soap she used, how she removed the paint, what did the doctor have to say and so on. Well, since we are not doctors, but we have worked with our paints for over 9 years and have never come across any issues concerning our paint, we could only figure that he was allergic to something in the paint or even something that he ate that day, so we asked her to send over some pictures. As soon as we saw the images we could tell that the washcloth and pressure were most likely the cause as the only spots that were irritated were just under the eye in that sensitive area. So moms and dads, please be very careful in removing face paint from your child's delicate face! We have removal instructions on the back of every one of our business cards and we try to verbally tell everyone as well. When we say massage the soap into the paint before wetting the face, we mean with your soft fingertips and not a washcloth or rough paper towels. Removal is with wet wipes or damp toilet paper, do these two steps a couple of times if necessary then rinse with luke warm water. Repeat all steps...GENTLY, if necessary. We use highly pigmented, cosmetic grade, safe face paints. It may take a couple of washing to get it off....take your time. Best thing to do is just use common sense on baby skin...even faces! Hope this helps.
