Why our paint range is vegan
When choosing which paint to use in your space, a bunch of factors come into play. Colour, durability and environmental impact to name a few. Sound overwhelming? Don’t worry, we’ve done all the hard work for you, so you can enjoy our beautifully curated range of earth AND animal conscious paint, guilt-free.
Vegan paint? YES, it's totally a thing!
Most people don't realise that standard household paint often contains animal by-products such as casein, which is the primary protein in milk; shellac, a resin secreted from the female lac bug; and ox gall, which comes from cows. If you’re reading this and thinking, “WTF?!”, we want you to know that you’re not alone. We know there’s no Plan(et) B, and we’re big fans of all furry friends… so we did what any animal-loving colour company would do — we made our paint 100% vegan.
You might be wondering if vegan paint can still look and perform just as good as it’s non-vegan counterparts? Well, what if we told you we’ve made it even better, without the animal byproducts!

Vegan paints are made exactly like normal paint, but without the use of any animal related products and without being tested on animals. Instead, they replace all animal products with natural, plant based binders like vegetable casein or legumin. And if you find it hard to believe, we've got a LIFETIME warranty to back it.
When shopping around, keep in mind that while many “eco friendly” paints focus on minimising toxicity, they often include animal by-products such as beeswax. Likewise, some vegan-only paints don’t always guarantee an eco-friendlier product either!
But never fear! As we’ve not only formulated our paints to be more than 99.9% free from the air-polluting VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) that are commonly found in high levels in your average paint can, but our ENTIRE operations are run on renewable energy and our packaging comes with an eco-friendly option at checkout too!
Happy planet, happy animals, happy Tinters. Now that’s something to drop your sheets about.
