Suppliers of natural, eco-friendly paints listed below
There are a wonderful array of different types and colours of paint in our DIY stores today; most of these contain solvents that pose significant health risks. Solvents can enter the body by inhaling the fumes, contact with the skin and by swallowing, research has shown that contact with paints can cause irritation of the skin, respiratory problems, headaches, and dizziness and have carcinogenic effects. The long term effects? Well the chemicals within paint that we are exposed to over many years in our homes are just one aspect of the chemical cocktail of modern living.
The World Health Organisation has shown a link between working as a professional painter and an increased risk of cancer of up to 20%, with the increased risk of lung cancer 40%. (See the article below).
Solvent-based paints are a source of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) – highly toxic substances that present a serious health hazard and create environmental pollution. Solvent free paints are free of these dangerous VOCs and are made from natural products such as plant oils and minerals, not only are they better for your health, but they have been produced in an environmentally friendly manner.
