ECOS wall paints offer a completely unique range of decorative finishes. It's the only range of totally solvent-free paints available anywhere in the world today and has been independently tested to reveal 0.0% VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds).

 

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 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 paints INCLUDING Matt and Silk wall paints!

 

Most paints currently on sale, both gloss and emulsion, contain solvents and VOCs. ECOS paints 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 ECOS paints means that rooms are safe and pleasant to live in-play in-sleep in-eat in!

I used these throughout my apartment when I moved in 5 years ago, a time when I suffered very badly with MCS. I had to move just to be alone in a chemical-free environment and had to wear a carbon filter face mask whenever out in public or when I had company over.

After painting my place with Ecos wall paints I let it air out for a week and then moved in. I had no reactions at all from day one. There was also no strong smell as you usually expect with regular paints.

The Ecos paint was only slightly more expensive than a good quality regular paint and has stood up well after 5 years.

I'd highly recommend these paints to anyone suffering from multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS) and I am sure they are likely to be a good option for those with asthma, sick building syndrome, and unexplained chronic illness as well.

Great - didn't trigger my chemical sensitivities
