"Last year I was building a house with many Eco features: Grey water waste, Photovoltaic panels, 14,000 litre rain water tanks and natural recycled timber where possible. Care of the environment is paramount to me. The Natural Paint Company was my preference because their plant based products are made without damage to the environment. The service The Natural Paint Company provided was second to none, they were extremely helpful when mixing paints to match colours outside of their normal range and our painter said that the paints were a dream to work with."

"New Zealand’s only castle – Larnach Castle was built in 1871. The original Kauri floors have to withstand the effects of the growing number of visitors every year. We needed something to maintain the original floor boards up to the high standard expected and started using The Natural Paint Company Hard Wax and Floor Care in 2008. It revived the timbers and has given them a lovely shine. We like the fact that the Hard Wax product is made with Natural Waxes and has a lovely lemon aroma."

"Your products suit our eco homes perfectly. Your paint products are excellent to use, they go on with ease and touch ups are made easy and our clients enjoy the colour range. (The) oils and varnishes compliment the large amount of wood we use in our homes and bring out the natural colours and effects in the wood and offer lasting protection. We have found the advice and support of the staff at The Natural Paint Company to be extremely helpful."

"We chose The Natural Paint Company for their environmental ethos and as a healthy alternative to standard toxic products. We have been pleased with how the paints have performed, how pleasant they were to work with and also impressed with the friendly, knowledgeable and helpful staff."

"For us, using The Natural Paint Company is a no-brainer. Lovely service, high quality products, and an environmentally responsible company. And the paint smells nice too!"

"We couldn’t be happier with the quality and finish of your products. The application of paint to our café walls, sealer to the floors and to the ceiling was painless and the drying process, and its citrus scent, a breeze. We recommend The Natural Paint Company to interested customers because we believe in the natural ethos of this company… And because our café prides itself on good environmental practices, we like to support others who are equally aware of their responsibility to the planet."

"Being one of the painters that spent three weeks of nights painting the interior (of Greenpeace’s new premises), it was great to work with paint that didn’t leave you with a headache and sore eyes and it looks great. Many thanks."

"I first came across your products when I first moved to NZ about 6 yrs ago. I had found out that my son, then a baby, was severely allergic to a number of foods and also chemically sensitive. This meant that we had to be extremely careful with any chemical (read soap, cleaning products, cosmetics and of course paint) that we used around him and around the house. After doing a fair amount of research we decided to use your wall paint for the walls. The paints…were lovely to use. The only smell was a lovely citrus scent that was great to work with. It is now about 6 years since we painted and the walls still look good."
