At Ecolour, we use breakthrough technology to manufacture premium quality water based paint that is 100% free of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). VOC free means the paint is safe to use around the chemically sensitive, asthma sufferes, pregnant women, children, pets and you.
Traditional household paints contain toxic chemicals that are released into the air for years after application, called Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). VOCs are harmful chemicals that have been shown to contribute to many health conditions including breathing difficulties, dizziness, headaches, fatigue, blurred vision and even cancer. If you’ve ever walked into a recently painted room and felt a little dizzy or your eyes started stinging, that’s likely and indication of how your body is being impacted by VOCs.
The World Health Organisation classifies painting as a high risk occupation as repeated exposure to the VOCs in regular paints leads to much higher rates of lung and bladder cancer for painters.
