How much VOC exposure is dangerous for an individual?
As expected, there is no set answer to this – each person is different, and so it is impossible to say how much is safe.
Fortunately there are options available to protect your family from exposure to harmful chemicals.
So with all of this in mind, we have rounded up 10 of the best baby safe products that you can choose from when decorating your nursery.
The YOLO Color House takes customer safety and the environment very seriously, and restrict more than 1,000 chemical compounds from their paints. The zero-VOC formula means that these products are a good choice for your nursery.
Our products have NO VOCs, NO toxic fumes/HAPs-free, NO reproductive toxins, and No chemical solvents or other stinky stuff!
No toxic fumes means that Colorhouse paints do not contain any hazardous air pollutants. These toxic chemicals are pollutants that can cause serious health effects and have adverse impact on our environment.
Our paints are zero VOC and are absent of the common icky chemicals and toxic fumes found in conventional paints, such as mutagens, hazardous air pollutants, ozone depleting compounds, formaldehyde and phthalates. Our paints are a healthier option for the home, but if you have specific health concerns we always recommend speaking with your doctor.
Milk Paint offers a product which is truly back to basics, with earth based paints that you mix up from a powder. These products are naturally VOC free, and looking at the testimonial below, could be one of the safest paints on the planet. (Although we wouldn’t recommend you try this at home!).
Here is your ultimate testimonial…. I was painting an old door in our home and had a yogurt container with the mixed blue paint on top of my 70 gallon fish aquarium. Well I am not sure how it happened, but the paint went into the tank (along with the brush). The aquarium turned a deep rich blue color, though I was extremely worried about the health of my fish. My wife thought that I should take them out, but from my experience with aquariums, they seem to clean themselves, so I left it. I was simply amazed! 24 hours after spilling the Milk Paint into my fish tank, the color was about gone and all the fish were healthy as ever. The blue eventually faded out completely and the fish flourished. Since then I have added about a dozen new fish to my tank. Not only am I more than happy with the results of the paint on the old door, but I am also amazed that the paint is so non-toxic that even a little neon tetra is unscathed after swimming in it. Thank you!” ~ Gregg, Vermont
