FAQs About ECOS Paints

  • Yes! At ECOS Paints, our non-toxic wood stains are developed to avoid VOCs and contain no polyurethane. Our zero-VOC stains also feature incredible coverage, so you don’t have to sacrifice safety for quality.

  • Yes! Here at ECOS Paints, we offer a large selection of non-toxic wood varnishes (with both clear varnish and tinted varnish options) that you can use indoors without the risk of exposing friends and family to the harsh chemicals found in conventional wood finishes.

  • There are a few differences between stain and varnish, both with their own benefits for your next home project!

    Stains should be used to change or enhance the natural color of wood in your home. While they may offer some protection for wood, they are mostly used for aesthetics.

    The main purpose of wood varnish is to add durability to wood. Varnish should be applied to high-traffic or use areas of your home to protect them from everyday wear and tear.

    For a complete transformation of your woodwork, we recommend starting with a coat of one of our wood stains followed by a few coats of one of our clear varnishes. The result? Woodwork that’s beautifully tinted and protected.
