VOCs are a major contributor to low-level atmospheric pollution and the use of these compounds leads to global warming. In addition, the use of solvent-based eco friendly paints is a major cause of Sick Building Syndrome, Danish Painter's Syndrome, Asthma, Allergies, Chemical Sensitivities and the general Flu-like symptoms reported by many people using conventional eco friendly paints INCLUDING Matt and Silk wall eco friendly paints!

Many people say "Well, what is so special about ECOS? Surely, all organic eco friendly paints are solvent-free and besides, I can buy low-solvent paint from the local DIY store".

Wrong on both counts!

Many "Organic" eco friendly paints DO contain toxic solvents such as turpentine. Also, low-solvent does not equate with no solvent; ECOS contains NO Solvent



Q - why not use natural pigments/earth colours?
A - some are highly toxic (vermillion,) - the others are limited to subdued shades - browns, reds, yellows , black etc

Q - Why is solvent-free important?

A - Because not only are lingering paint smells in the home unpleasant, but many eco friendly paints including most matt and silk eco friendly paints contain solvents which are positively harmful and cause Sick Building Syndrome, Danish Painters Syndrome, asthma, allergies and chemical sensitivities.
