A house is comparable to a protective outer skin and it needs to breathe. Eco-friendly building materials and natural Paints allow this to happen. Natural Paints have a vibrancy, a life, and their colours create a harmony that is satisfying for both the eye and the soul. Natural paints are different to conventional paints in a number of respects:
They are not based on the chemical ‘cracking’ of crude oil. All conventional paints (and all plastics and synthetic materials) are based on this petrochemical industry.Instead, renewable ingredients (plant based) or simple earth components are used.
No pollution is caused during the manufacture of natural paints. Conventional chemical factories are notorious for polluting earth, air and water. There are no health hazards for the workers making the paint.
Natural paints leave an open ‘breathing’ and anti-static surface. They are bio-degradable, for example, excess wall emulsion can be dried and then added to a compost heap.Natural paints do not pose a health hazard. For people who are sensitive to even natural solvents, there are genuine 100% water-based alternatives.
