Why Earth Safe Finishes

Earth Safe Finishes has responded to a demand for an acrylic paint line that is environmentally responsible, a paint where no harmful chemicals are emitted into the air to affect interior or exterior air quality. We have taken the time and effort to incorporate state of the art ingredients in the products we make and offer. We have a paint line that has great coverage, hide, scrubability and longevity. Research has shown that indoor air quality is a leading health risk for individuals at home or in the work place. At Earth Safe Finishes our Number 1 priority is to ensure the health and safety of those using our products while maintaining the highest quality in the market.
Earth Safe Finishes prides its self by making VOC Free non toxic products. VOC free means no off gassing, but that is only part of the concern. Having a product line that is non toxic as well as VOC free is difficult to find. Our products do not have any of the following: formaldehyde, benzene, lead, cadmium, chromium, diethyl phthalate, dibutyl, ammonia, acetone, toluene, d-limonene, ethyl T Butyl Acetate, 2-amino-2 methyl-1-propanol, methylene chloride and perchloroethylene, ethylene glycol, crystalline silica, biocides or fungicides.
Chemicals enter the body through 3 major pathways…breathing, through the skin or touching and through swallowing. Because of the above toxic chemicals in paint and paint products it can cause cancer, headaches, dizziness, respiratory problems, kidney and liver damage, chronic diseases, chest pain, coughing, eye, nose and throat irritation, reduced lung function, fatigue, nausea, conjunctival irritation to name a few. Depending on the individual these symptoms can be short term or chronic.
