Auro Natural Paints
AURO decorating eco products are good for you and good for the environment. We stand out amongst manufacturers of natural and eco paints and wood finishes because we have always been totally committed and uncompromising in our environmental standards. Our products contain 99% natural raw materials.
It goes almost without saying that we do not use petrochemicals in our products. We also ensure that natural raw materials come from environmentally managed sources and are produced using a sustainable ecological cycle. Much of the raw linseed oil used in our paints is certified organically grown close to the factory and any waste product and excess paint can be composted. We are happy to fully declare all our ingredients, these can be found in our technical data sheets for each product downloadable from this site.
Our breathable paints are based on organic linseed oil resins, plant and mineral pigments for colour and chalks for fillers. Our wood finishes are micro-porous so they don’t flake, peel or blister and are easily maintained. Our use of natural and plant based ingredients means that allergy sufferers and people who are chemically sensitive are much more able to tolerate our products. Please see a detailed response for allergy sufferers in the FAQ's. They are also perfect to use on children's toys and cots.
