ECO Paint and varnishes are a completely unique range of decorative finishes.

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 varnishes is a major cause of Sick Building Syndrome, Danish Painter's Syndrome, Asthma, Allergies.

Most emulsions currently on sale, both gloss and emulsion, contain solvents and VOCs. Ours contain none.

As a result they are ideal for children's bedrooms, nurseries, kitchens and anywhere in the home, especially if you or a member of your family is chemically sensitive or suffers from asthma or allergies.

Using our emulsions means that rooms are safe and pleasant to live in-play in-sleep in-eat in!

Conventional gloss and emulsions contain solvents which can cause irritation and serious health problems. Our emulsions - the world's only range of solvent free varnishes - literally a breath of fresh air!
They are made to extremely high standards, using only the best raw materials. Full quality testing is carried out at every stage of manufacture. Used correctly, varnishes will perform as well if not better than old-fashioned solvent-based products. All products are washable and all shades are non-yellowing.


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

Wrong on both counts!

Many "Organic" emulsions DO contain toxic solvents such as turpentine
Also, low-solvent does not equate with no solvent; our emulsions contain NO Solvent

 

COMMON QUESTIONS/ENQUIRIES

Q - why use titanium dioxide instead of natural alternatives?
A - Firstly - it is safe, safe enough to eat. Secondly - natural opacifiers are relatively poor and often need four or five coats of paint to cover properly

Q - Why not use natural binders and resins rather than synthetic ones?

A - Some are animal products (bone, hide) - others take days to dry (oil based) - others (rosins) - need solvents to function (turpentine, white spirit) - in short, there ARE no adequate natural alternatives

Q - Why is solvent-free important?

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

Q - Are ECOS products suitable for use in babies rooms or for those with chemical sensitivites, asthma, allergies, M.E. etc

A - Yes, ideally so.

Q - Can I put ECOS straight onto old paint finishes?
A - Yes

Q - Is our emulsion micro porous?
A - Yes

Q - Is our emulsions as good as the brand leaders?
A - NO - it is far better because ECOS is made up to the highest quality and not down to a price.

Q - Why should I buy ECOS rather than the "low odour" products widely available?
A - For your health, for your peace of mind and for your environment
