Highly Durable non-yellowing paints
There is a perception that water-based paint is not as hard-wearing as their oil-based counterparts but this is not correct. In fact, they can perform much better because they stay flexible for longer. And this is especially important when used externally.
External timber will expand and contract in response to local temperatures, especially when exposed to direct sunlight. Eventually, this everyday movement will break down a painted surface allowing moisture to penetrate below the surface.
Because water-based paint remains flexible they can accommodate regular movement and, therefore, last much longer.
Water-based paint tends also to be water vapour permeable (or, microporous), which means they allow trapped moisture beneath their surface to evaporate naturally without damaging the paint film.

The advantages of using these paints mean that you can reduce the amount of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) present in the home, improving indoor air quality; especially if you have respiratory or allergy problems.
Natural paints are micro-porous, allowing the walls to breathe. Because moisture is not trapped between the wall and the layer of paint, there is no blistering or peeling.
Natural paints do not use petroleum products and contain ingredients from sustainable sources.
Because of their non-toxic, natural ingredients, many natural paints are biodegradable, easily disposed of and even fit for a household compost pile once dried. This reduces landfill mass, environmental pollution and disposal costs compared to synthetic paints
