Frequently asked questions

What ingredients are used in the Dough?

We are proud of our natural ingredients and happy to share a full list. Each jar of Dough contains Canadian milled flour, sea salt, cream of tartar, arrowroot powder, coconut oil and vegetable glycerin. We use plant based dyes which include beetroot, turmeric, purple potato, spirulina, annatto, cocoa and charcoal. Our dough is lightly scented with diluted, pure essential oils including sweet orange, lemon, lavender, pink grapefruit and spearmint. If skin irritation occurs, please discontinue use. While our dough is made of natural ingredients + smells good enough to eat, it is NOT intended for human consumption. Parental supervision is recommended.

How should I care for my playdough?

Once opened, we recommend storing your Dough in the fridge to maximize shelf life. If drying occurs, add a few drops of water and squish your playdough back to life! Should you notice any mould on your dough, discard immediately.

How long does the playdough last?

Once opened, our Dough will last between 3-6 months if stored properly in an air tight container. Because of the natural dye we use, colour may fade over time.

Why the glass jars?

Did you know consumer plastics can only be recycled 2-3 times in their lifetime and then take 1,000 years to decompose? Glass can be recycled endlessly without losing quality and this is why we've chosen to package our Dough in glass jars. Not only do these jars minimize plastic waste, but they provide air-tight storage and can be re-used as paint jars or storage for odds and ends. Please remove dough from jar for playtime to ensure your little ones safety.

Does the playdough contain peanuts or other tree nuts?

Our Dough is prepared in a peanut-free kitchen; however, we use third party ingredients and cannot guarantee that these ingredients do not contain traces of peanuts.

What age should play with Dough?

We recommend our products for children 3 and up as Dough can be a choking hazard. Parental supervision is recommended.

Why plant based colours?

Synthetic dyes are derived from petroleum and even food grade dyes can contain nasty ingredients, such as parabans. We believe plant-based dyes are not only more vibrant, but a more sustainable way to create beautiful colours and connect children to nature.
