Frequently Asked Questions

Why are Gravity & Momentum blood products superior to other brands and internet recipes?

Gravity & Momentum blood products are the ONLY blood products on the market which are non toxic AND will wash out completely without leaving a  stain. With other brands and recipes you have to choose one or the other: non-toxic or non-staining. Some other brands/recipes are detergent-based blood products which will wash out but are unsafe for the skin and mouth. Some other brands/recipes are food-based mixtures, which are non-toxic but will often stain your clothes, skin and personal property. Gravity & Momentum blood products are both non-toxic and non-staining.

Do the Gravity & Momentum blood products really wash out of clothes and off of skin?

Yes! Our blood products will often wash out with just warm water. Our process creates a compound which bonds the dyes to themselves instead of to clothes or skin. While we have tested it on most fabrics available, we recommend you try it yourself on a small patch prior to wide-scale use.  For effective laundering, please see our how to page.

Are the Gravity & Momentum blood products safe on the skin and in the mouth?

Yes! Our products our made of food-grade ingredients, but are not meant to be ingested. Some people may have allergic reactions to certain ingredients. Please see the ingredient list before applying to skin or placing in or around the mouth.

Do you have a Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS)?

Yes. Please contact us.

What are the differences between Blood Jam and Blood Syrup?

The difference is in their consistency. Blood Jam is a very thick stage blood which can be used as is for make-up effects with very little dripping or running, or it can be thinned out with water to get to a runnier consistency without losing the color or washability. Blood Syrup is already at an oozing consistency without any pre-mixing, but can be further thinned out to a runny consistency by mixing it with water. Due to the versatility of Blood Jam, it is the more popular of our products as you can get more for your money.

How long will the blood products last?

If left as originally packaged, none of the ingredients are expected to go bad or grow bacteria, but we recommend use within 60 days of purchase to avoid settling of the ingredients or a change in color. The color is expected to last up to six months, but we recommend a 60 day usage window to be 100% sure that the color will be accurate.

If mixed with water, bacteria will begin to grow within 12 hours and the product may no longer be safe to use.

What colors are available?

The default color is a dark red which is the most realistic. It is good for large effects and for effects that will be visible for long periods. We also make a bright red, which will give a quicker and deeper psychological shock to the audience if used quickly, unexpectedly and/or in small amounts.
