Health and Animal Safety

Zhoosh Paints support mindfulness and wellbeing in interior design with our range of health-conscious and eco-friendly paints for walls, ceilings, woodwork and metal surfaces.

From our low-VOC recipes to our commitment to zero testing on animals, we want to give you high performance, value for money and, most importantly of all, peace of mind.

Indoor air quality

Our paint recipes are very low in Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) which means they are virtually odourless

Some of the ingredients we use include:

  • 1,2-Benzisothiazol-3-(2H)-one
  • 5-Chloro-2-Methyl-4-Isothiazolin-3-one
  • 2-Methyl-2H-Isothiazol-3-one

The A+ Air Label Score given to our paints means they meet all of the relevant standards and recommendations, with very low emissions during application.

Safe paint for  all the family

Because of the very low VOC content and near-odourless formulation of our paints, they  are safe to use in babies' nurseries and children's bedrooms. Likewise the paint is safe for pets! Reassurance that the whole family is best protected when doing your DIY projects.

No animal testing

Zhoosh Paints are not tested on animals. We're happy to answer any questions about this - just ask - but the bottom line is that we do not test our products on animals.

We aim to minimise potential harms throughout our product range, including during development, and avoiding animal testing is one of our commitments to achieving this.

Our paint is not vegan, and again if you'd like to know more about the manufacturing process, we're happy to answer any specific questions you have about this. We are hoping to offer vegan paints in the future as we develop new products and recipes.


Low-VOC paint is eco-friendly and, crucially, habitat-friendly. Our paints are water-based and very low in VOCs, and small residues can be washed away without harming the environment.

We also use recycled and 100% recyclable paint tins, which can be rinsed and recycled at your local council-run recycling centre, so there's no single-use plastic paint tubs leftover after you finish decorating.

Pet safety

Last but not least are the animals who share our homes in the most literal sense - our furry companions who live in our households as part of the family!

Low-VOC paints from Zhoosh Paints  are safe for use around domestic animals. We'd suggest keeping them out of the room until the paint has dried, so as to avoid paint paw prints across the floor, but in terms of irritant ingredients, there should be no health hazard once the paint is dry.
