We are all familiar with "that paint smell" and you may have experienced headaches and even nausea during or after painting. This is caused by chemicals called VOCs (volatile organic compounds) that evaporate from conventional paint as it dries. Not so with Little Knights nursery paint, it is as safe as household paint gets – zero emission, allergen-free and 100% VOC free.
We feel that the air in our homes is already polluted enough, thanks to a cocktail of chemicals that we use every day in cleaning products, air fresheners and even emitted from our carpets, curtains and furniture. Conventional paint only adds to this by releasing low-level toxic emissions into the air, which can continue for years after application. That's why we created Little Knights - the world needs a safer paint.
Our paint is not “low VOC”, it is completely VOC free (even our gloss). It is a water-based paint that is also free from carcinogens, petrochemicals and hazardous fumes of any kind.
Little Knights paint is totally odourless, and we don’t just mean when it is cured, we mean even while you are applying it!
You can safely use Little Knights paint when pregnant, and could even apply the paint with your baby in the room in total safety.
No, Little Knight paint is not 100% natural, but with good reason. While we are aware of “100% natural” or "eco" paints on the market, they often contain ingredients that can be a breeding ground for bacteria, a common example of this is casein – which is a milk protein that grows mould. Other “natural" paints may be based on natural ingredients, but also contain chemical binders.
Wherever possible we use natural ingredients in Little Knights paint, but we want to provide the best and safest product we can. We use the minimum number of high quality ingredients possible to make this the very best paint to you can buy. We therefore include modern technology as appropriate, and sell our product with honesty and integrity. No false promises. If you would like details on the ingredients used in our paint, please CONTACT US.
For a solid, flat and elegant finish that is easy to touch up when required, matte paint is ideal for creating a gentle, soothing finish. It helps to conceal flaws too, making it a good choice for older walls with "character".
Has slightly more lustre than a matte finish, low-sheen rather than shiny. This attractive finish resists stains better than matte paint, and is easier to maintain
Creates an attractive and highly durable high sheen finish, an ideal choice if you want to make a room look bigger. While it is the easiest to clean (just wipe with a damp cloth) Silk paint’s light reflecting properties do make it more difficult to touch up because any difference in sheen will be apparent. It will make imperfections in your walls more noticeable, so it is worth investing a bit of extra time on surface preparation to make your walls as smooth as possible.
Even our gloss paint is zero-VOC! An easy-to-apply, non-drip antibacterial gloss paint that provides a hardwearing, wipe-clean finish for interior and exterior wood and metal. (Please note, the gloss does not share the formaldehyde-absorbing properties of the emulsion paint, but there's still no safer gloss paint on the market!)
