What is Natural Paint?

         

Eco-Heritage Paint

Natural paints are free of petrochemical ingredients and are biodegradable, unlike conventional latex paints that contain a variety of toxins, natural paints are true zero-VOC.

Our natural paints are made from non-toxic, environmentally friendly materials like hemp oil, chalk, lime, clay, earth and mineral pigments and all ingredients are clearly printed on the packaging.

Advantages

  • Breathable
  • Anti-static
  • Non-toxic
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Biodegradable
  • True Zero-VOC
  • Will never peel
  • Will never fade (UV permanent earth pigments)

Hemp Oil based Red Ochre paint is ideal for outdoor buildings, such as barns, garden sheds or fences.

Unfortunately we are currently out of stock. We apologize for any inconveniences.

What is the difference?

The differences between natural and conventional paints are significant, not only to your personal health and the environment, but also to building health.

With their synthetic binders (usually acrylic or vinyl), conventional latex paints produce a plastic-like coating on walls that does not allow moisture to pass through. In comparison, natural paints are completely breathable which helps to prevent problems due to moisture build-up and contributes to a positive room climate. 

Uses

Natural paints can be used the same as any conventional paints.

The porous qualities of natural paints are especially desirable in highly-insulated houses. This breathability is also key for barns where wood is exposed to the elements; it allows the wood to dry without moisture getting trapped between the paint and the wood, which inevitably leads to peeling with conventional paints.

Colour Choices

Valley Bio's Eco-Heritage Paint uses natural earth and mineral pigments that are UV permanent, meaning the colours will never fade. Valley Bio is currently only manufacturing Eco-Heritage Paint in Red Ochre.

Valley Bio intends to improve the colour selection of Eco-Heritage paint in the future, but may be able to accommodate special requests for other pigments. For a full selection of possible pigments, visit the Société des Ocres de France website.

They are a pure "whole food" that is healthy for the horse. If you're feeding quality Timothy hay, oats are actually the perfect thing to "balance" the diet. The only thing you'd be low in is Vitamin E and Calcium, and not by a lot. Adding some Alfalfa remedies that.

Horses are in good condition when their coats have a glow, and the hooves are strong, and the eyes are bright. A good diet is the first step to a healthy horse.
