AURO decorating products are good for you and good for the environment. We stand out among manufacturers of natural paints and wood finishes because we have always been totally committed and uncompromising in our environmental standards. Our products contain only natural raw materials except for a tiny amount of a synthetic, lead free drier, as no natural alternative exists. This drier constitutes less than 0.3% of the total volume of the product and is only used where necessary in some of our wood finishes.
It goes, almost without saying, that we do not use petrochemicals in our products. We also ensure that natural raw materials come from environmentally managed sources and are produced using a sustainable ecological cycle. For example, much of the raw linseed oil used in our paints is organically grown close to the factory and any waste product and excess paint can be composted. We are happy to fully declare all our ingredients, these are in our technical data sheets for each individual products available from this site.
Our paints are breathable and are based on natural ingredients and plant and mineral pigments. Our wood finishes are micro-porous so they don’t flake, peel or blister and are easily maintainable. Our use of natural and plant based ingredients means that allergy sufferers and people who are chemically sensitive are more able to tolerate our products. Please see a detailed response for allergy sufferers in the FAQ's.
Auro was voted ‘Favourite Ethical (DIY) Product’ by readers of ‘Ethical Consumer’ Magazine
We are also Best Buy in Ethical Consumer 2006, edition 100.
Several Auro products have also been recommended by the stringent German environmental ‘Oko Test’ Magazine.
In 2006 Auro Wood Stains came top compared to 21 other eco and non eco products in Test Magazine (the equivalent to Which in Germany).
In May 2006 Auro was the only paint company to receive 5 star excellence in the Proof report on Chemical Free Paint (www.proof.co.uk).
