Attacking allergies

Paint allergy is no joke for many people. The VOCs – Volatile Organic Compounds – and solvents found in many paints can lead to symptoms that exacerbate asthma, along with coughs, congestion, sore and runny eyes, skin irritation, swelling and more.

This cuts down on the options for allergy sufferers and asthmatics – until now. Crown Paint has launched a striking new range called Breatheasy that combines an on-trend palate of classic and modern colours with an allergy-friendly formula. It’s one that has been scientifically proven to reduce exposure to airborne asthma and allergy triggers.
