Low odour / low VOC
Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are a common paint ingredient and give paint its heady odour. They can cause headaches and other illness, so low VOC paint is worth looking for. We didn't test the claims about VOC content.
Claimed to be resistant to mould, mildew and fungus. We didn't test this claim.
