Asthma & Allergies
ECOS Paints, primers, stains, and varnishes
formulated to be asthma-friendly.
Asthma and Allergies
ECOS’ products were developed over 25 years ago for people who had asthma or allergies, and who would experience breathing difficulties when exposed to odors from fresh paint.
Technology to Breathe
Our coatings (which have been approved by the British Allergy Foundation) are designed to be purer than traditional products, and to avoid chemicals, like glycols and glycol ethers (PGEs), that can cause asthma and allergic reactions.
Health Issues With Traditional Paints
A Harvard School of Public Health study found that propylene glycol and glycol ethers (PGEs) commonly found in traditional paints, pose risks to toddlers and children. In their study, children with high bedroom PGE concentrations, had a 100% higher likelihood of having asthma, a 150% higher likelihood of having eczema, and a 320% higher likelihood of having rhinitis.
ECOS paint is amazing. My wife is an allergic asthmatic with multiple chemical sensitivity. We have to be very careful about what we use in the house for cleaning, painting, etc. This paint has absolutely no smell or chemical fumes and my wife had absolutely no reaction or sensitivity to it. I will never buy paint from the store again (unless it's ECOS).
Performance Without Compromise
Traditional products are sometimes modified to make them less harmful, by reducing, or substituting problematic chemicals. The result can often impact product performance - less durable, slow drying, poor coverage. In contrast, ECOS’ products were formulated from scratch, meaning our technology does not compromise the paint’s performance.
Consumers should be able to make an informed decision about the products they buy. We provide comprehensive ingredient lists, so that consumers can avoid the chemicals that cause them concern.
A Level Beyond
ECOS’ Air Purifying Products contain a unique filtering technology that absorbs harmful VOCs as they bounce around a room, or off-gas from a substrate. This technology can actually improve indoor air quality.
We don’t compromise on quality and we don’t expect you to.
