ECARF-Allergy Seal for the new certification category wall paint

Allergies may have several different triggers. Ingredients of wall paints, for example, may cause allergic symptoms, promote allergies or increase problems for people suffering from respiratory allergies due to emitted vapors.


ECARF certified wall paints do not contain critical ingredients above a certain threshold value and showed that they were tolerated by people suffering from respiratory allergies in an application study, as example Schöner Wohnen Polarweiss.


Thousands of certificateshave already been awarded since the first Seal of approval in 2006.The Allergy Seal is awarded by the ECARF Foundation.
