Non-toxic interior paint types usually fall into two categories: natural and low-VOC. Natural paints are made with all-natural ingredients, including naturally occurring pigments, clay, and even milk protein.
What Is Low-VOC Paint?
VOCs, or “volatile organic compounds,” are chemical compounds found in many traditional building materials, including paint. These compounds vaporize and enter the atmosphere during and after application. In low-VOC paints, water is the main ingredient instead of petroleum solvents, reducing or eliminating the harsh smell of chemicals and associated health effects.
