Indoor Air Quality – Is the Air in Your Home Safe?

Indoor Air Quality – Is the Air in Your Home Safe?

In the future nearly five out of ten children will suffer from allergies and will become a burden for their family and our medical system.

Do you live in a healthy home? We all try to eat healthy food, wear healthy clothing, build sustainable homes and yet we have high levels of pollutants inside our homes. Amazingly, our indoor air is commonly 10 times more polluted than the air outside, even in a busy industrialised city! Why is that? It's because we bring into our home many products based on their advertised suitability but we're not aware of their ingredients, and so we unwittingly bring unwanted harmful chemicals into our home.

The products that contribute to the toxic chemical load range from new furniture and fittings, curtains, carpets, bedding, cleaning product, soaps, shampoo, laundry products and 'mainstream' paint you buy in a hardware/paint shop.

Today we know that conventional paints – or petrochemical paints - can have several unwanted (toxic) ingredients like preservatives, solvents, additives, coal tire pigments, Acrylates, Bisphenol A (BPA), Phthalate esters, Polyvinylacetate resins etc.

Here at Bio Products we have the expertise to provide you with Natural Paint Products that are better for your family and the environment. Natural paint products are predominately made from ingredients such as linseed oil and safflower oil, clays and minerals.

So, if you are concerned about your health, or about the allergies of your family and friends, the Bio Products range of paints could be exactly what you are looking for; and the natural colours are a delight for the eyes!
