Only paint I can use !
I tried ecolour a few years ago, gingerly trying a small area for our bathroom . As I had an extremely toxic reaction to normal house paints with benzines. This had resulted in 2 months off work headaches, memory loss, speech loss- finding words, saying wrong words, loss of balance and ability to drive, writing letters backwards and missing words, in short debilitating. No problems with eco paint!! I could go ahead and paint my home after 7 years overdue ! Service from the company has been terrific despatched in 2 days just slow delivery in the tassie courier end. Price wise the same as any commercial brand - why buy any toxic chemicals. Quality paint with great coverage also used exterior on my daughter’s fence. Great results !!!!
Purchased in January 2015.
Wonderful service, speedy delivery, great product
Currently using primer and satin eco paint on a crib and am thrilled with the results. The paint does tend to get a little thick, but you can actually water down slightly if stirring doesn't work. One coat of the primer has been enough to fully cover the hideous bright yellow that was on the crib originally. Service was outstanding - staff were super helpful and delivery from Byron Bay to Sydney was one day.
The paint arrived promptly and the colours were as ordered .Using the low VOC paint is a treat and Ive had no headaches as per usual paint brands.However I did find that I had to sieve the paint the next morning as skin had set in the paint and I spent sometime removing it from the roller tray and the ceiling.The roller and been wrapped in a damp cloth inside a plastic bag and the roller tray was draped in a wet towel overnight.My friend also had this issue with Ecolour paints.Id be happy to recommend the prompt service and easy to use website to friends but would also mention the the issues that I experienced .Regards Peter
Low Odour, lovely finish
We have found the product easy to use, looks beautiful and doesn’t drip. I added water to make it go further and this worked well. Other paint might have an even smoother finish but our family put health first. our products were delivered in a really timely manner as well.
The worst paint ever used cost us $20,000 extra
We used this paint on our reno after undercoat on new plaster walls. We used a Master painter so they had plenty of experience painting. This paint doesnt behave like normal paint. Cut in around the doors with a brush, roll the walls and the cut in paint comes off the wall!. It was very hard to get a uniform finish on the walls. It took twice as long to paint. We had to sand walls down and re skimcoat as the finish was that bad. I caught my painter sieving paint through a panty hose to get the bits out that form on the inside of the plastic lid...- chemical reaction? They drop into the paint when lid opened. Cant leave rollers wrapped up.. dry the next day. I contacted Ecolour and got a few phone calls. I directed them to speak to my painter. They said they'd come out but didn't. I sent them the first $5000 invoice from plasterer to sand walls and re skim. They have not responded to further emails. If this company cant be bothered with a customer out of pocket an extra $20,000 because of their paint they wont care about honouring any warranty claim. Our painter has warned us not to use blue tack on the walls for fear the paint will come off.

Love Love Love Ecolour
We have used this product both inside and outside two different properties over the past five years. It was so good I recommended it to two health centres where I worked : they used it and the results were amazing. Even the traditional old school "professional painter" who could hardly breathe and was a grey (ashen) colour from all the toxic fumes he had been exposed to for years - told us he liked using the products and was actually able to sleep at night (rather than up all night coughing). From a health perspective... you cannot go past 's...aying no to VOC's'. We love using zero VOC products and have just purchased carpet with no VOC's as well. To top off this great product ... the staff are fantastic at Ecolour and it is dirt cheap courier service (or free if you spend $100 or more) delivered within 1-2 days each time we ordered (metro and rural).
Perfect color. Fantastic product
I got both the satin and the clear coat. The colour was beautiful. The consistency is like pudding which actually makes it far easier to use with less mess.
I've had no problems through a freezing winter and boiling summer, product is still in perfect order.
I'm so happy with the eco aspect of this product and the ease of use. 10/10
Great natural paint
The price is very competitive for natural paint. At volume, it is cheaper than Dulux! The colours match very well and I am very pleased. No smell whatsoever. Also, the customer service was excellent and much more convenient to have it delivered to your front door. This paint may need more coats than standard paints, but I haven't really tried both.
I was surprised with how well the paint rolled on and how even it appeared. Am happy with the ability and accuracy of colour matching. Odour not evident so that is always a positive thing, especially in a bedroom. I have not used the clear wood finish yet but am hoping for good results. Thanks
Very horrible experience with paint and company
The paint goes mouldy. A call to the company resulted in us being told it was our fault and we were completely dismissed. I advise you not to take the risk with your home. It ruined ours and dealing with the sales manager was a bitter and awful experience. Worse than unprofessional - completely staggering.
Just what we wanted
Interior paint: creamy, easy to apply, lovely finish, NO VOCs. We used white throughout our home, which is surrounded by forest. The light bounces off the walls. We coupled the paint with Livos floor oils to create a beautiful non toxic family home. We recommend this lovely paint to anyone.
Have used Ecolour on 3 house renos and Love It!
Ecolour Eco Interior Paint is easy to apply, has great coverage, has no odour and is easy to wash off painting equiptment! I have used Ecolour to paint the internal walls, ceilings and skirts of a 2 bedroom apartment, an entire 3 bedroom house and am currently using it to paint a two storey 4 bedroom house. Once you go Ecolour, you never go back.
Best paint and will never use another
I started using this paint years ago as I have reactions to paint fumes. Ecolour solved this problem, it comes in any colour, is super easy to paint on and clean up. The online phone and delivery works perfectly. I actually painted my bedroom and slept in it that night without any breathing issues. Fabulous and thanks!
