Our Eco-friendly Eggshell Paint for wood is an interior wood paint that is free from chemical solvents and manufactured with natural raw materials. Because it is water based and totally oil free, it is non-yellowing and there are no unpleasant smells or emissions. Best of all it is flexible and breathable – so it cares for your wood for longer. Plus it looks fabulous, and dries very quickly to a classic silk sheen.
