VOCs and
Chemical Free Paint

VOCs are chemicals, seriously bad for your health & need to be avoided wherever possible – and Chemical free paint is the ideal option. A Chemical Free Home needs Chemical Free Paint. VOCs Volatile Organic Chemicals are in many household products - including paints - and cause Danish Painters Syndrome, Sick Building Syndrome, asthma, allergies & cancer.

How Safe is Safe

Our chemical free water based paints have all the certificates to show No VOCs, No Solvents, No Heavy Metals.

Are we willing to put our money where our mouth is ?

Well, as the inventor, I am. So watch our YouTube video as I eat a tablespoon of our Matt Wallpaint. And I have done this demonstration half a dozen times or more - for Lancashire + Cumbria Trading Standards, the ASA, HSE and others. So why not ask the others to do the same ? You never know – they just might !

Lakeland vs The Rest

Read the marketing carefully and you’ll see that other brands are surprisingly unremarkable (No USP) – don’t believe us?

One Coat Application

You need to apply at double the stated coverage - to equal 2 coats of paint – but this is easy because of our thick & creamy emulsion formulations. Do not to spread the paint too far, keep a wet edge on walls and ceilings at all times,

To prepare, apply & finish diligently - using best quality rollers - HAMILTON PERFECTION for instance, do not lay-off & do not stop unless at a natural divide, like a corner.

Our Super-concentrated microporous emulsion breathable formulations - zero emissions paint - water based paint - using 3x normal pigment levels 24% -v- 8% means that when using most types of wallpaint, One Coat
coverage is easily achievable over pale to mid colours with STD MATT, CHALKY MATT, MARBLE MATT, COVER-UP MATT, DISTEMPER & CLAYPAINT - but may not include strong vibrant colours – like acid yellow, tango, lime etc. So why bother with One Coat? = Easy - because its Half the time
& Half the effort ! And this is especially great on Ceilings - where our Thicker Non-Drip, Non-Spatter formulations are ideal for one-coat easy ceiling coverage.

no priming.

If the surface is oily/dusty/polished etc then a good clean with a kitchen scourer - a green Scotchbrite pad or similar - is all that is needed. Sanding is only needed where a clean surface cannot be achieved by other means.

Priming = is not normally needed - only bare woods, bare plywood, bare MDF or similar require priming with wood primer or MDF Passivator.

Lakeland Paints - the Facts

Why buy Ecos Organic Paint - as opposed to any other environmentally friendly paint ?

Because other paint is just LOW VOC - maybe 1-2% VOC – with harmful, smelly VOCs, solvents & chemicals - just with different branding & usually made by just two or three big EU producers with NO USP – Yes - NO Unique Selling Point. But Lakeland Paint is at least 7000x Purer than this – and often 12,000x purer ! Ecos is Super Breathable and uses 3x as much pigment as most others - 24% -v- 8% - meaning that often you can finish that job with just One Coat of our Eco Friendly non toxic paint. All are totally VOC-Free, Solvent Free and Non-yellowing – Forever!

Other paint brands = Read their claims carefully and you’ll see that other brands are surprisingly unremarkable - (with No USP) and this is why the new ones arrive in a flurry of press-releases, fizzle out and die – because they have nothing new to offer.

Lakeland Paints are unique, with 0.0% VOC and are now in our 32nd year, selling to 72 countries – but like other top brands, Quality never comes cheap – it can’t. And this is often how you can spot a brand in trouble - when you see it on supermarket shelves - because it costs ~50% just to be there – so guess how they make up that 50% loss?

So What are Breathable paints
Nominally, Breathable paint has an Sd of <0.1. All Lakeland Paints are Super Breathable paint anyway – we don’t specifically engineer them to be that way, they just ARE breathable paints. All Breathable Paint is rated by its Sd value (Steam Diffusion value) or MVT and a breathable paint is one that lets moisture to get through it quickly - so a lower Sd means a more breathable paint. Standard paints meanwhile are often higher than Sd3.0 = not great ! Breathable Paint with an Sd of 0.1 or less is a good breathable paint suitable for all purposes.

Limewash, woodwash – 0.01
StdMatt, Soft Sheen, Super chalky, Distemper, Claypaint, Cover-up, Marble, Firewall ~ 0.04

Mineral paint
Ours are a fusion of mineral silicates & binders, making them the ideal mineral paint – a fusion like this attains the best of all worlds – mineral paint, flex & luxury.

Environmental Impact

Environmental impact is minimal, in keeping with our environmental credentials of over 30 yrs – though we are always looking to make further improvements – and can be categorised as

Raw Materials – which are sourced responsibly with due diligence towards modern-day slavery, environmental cost, local sourcing, embedded energy, non-toxicity, cradle to grave sustainability, transportation etc. All are vegan & non-animal tested. All products are incapable of generating microplastics & are non-hazardous to waterways, run-off & aquatic plantlife & organisms – all finished products are inherently non-hazardous to all life forms with the exception of wet-state limewash, which is caustic, as are all brands.

Packaging – which is evaluated for the above parameters, plus recycled/recyclability – which is excellent = the steel cans are recycled on an endless loop; polythene/polypropylene is fully recyclable and all delivery packaging including cardboard boxes & void-fill is fully or partly recycled, is recyclable ad infinitum & compostable. Loosefill is edible starch and is compostable.

Energy – usage is kept to an absolute minimum, with the factory lit by LED & fluorescent lighting throughout & transportation optimised with unnecessary journeys proscribed.

Carbon Capture – great paint that's great for the planet. We donate and support carbon capture to the tune of 4 tonnes of CO2 this year alone - which helps to plant 150,000 native trees in the UK - so that by choosing Lakeland Paints you not only cut your share of global VOC gas emissions - (currently at 26 Million tonnes annually) - but you're also helping to tackle Global Warming by stockpiling CO2 where it belongs - in our forests.

Oceans - we also support The Marine Conservation Society - the oceans capture more CO2 than trees and help combat the climate crisis. A healthy planet needs healthy oceans.
