Back in 2010, Farrow & Ball were the first in the industry to move to an entirely water based range. Now, all of their paints are not only classed as Minimal or Low VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds), but far exceed the standard for those categories.
VOCs are the culprits behind the strong smell of some traditional paints, a result of pollutants being released into the atmosphere as the paint dries. By contrast, Farrow & Ball's low odor finishes don’t release any nasty fumes, giving you a product that’s safe, comfortable to apply and live with, and kinder to the environment.
Farrow & Ball's uncompromising dedication to quality is evident in every component of their paint, from the responsibly sourced pigments that give it its rich color to its iconic and infinitely recyclable tin. They’re also uncompromising about who they work with, ensuring they only source ingredients from suppliers who share our ethos.
