Choice of manufacturers
We offer Tockay (manufactured by Kreidezeit) and Auro products, two German companies. All of these products are based on old recipes that have been updated to suit both traditional and more modern surfaces such as gypsum. The products we offer allow for the creation of the simplest finishes to the most sophisticated decorative effects such as Tadelakt. They are natural, healthy, hypo-allergenic, and environmentally friendly products.
Health and environment
Our products do not contain any synthetic or petrochemicals, as evidenced by the complete list of components available on the Technical Data Sheet of each of our products. All lists are available on our website. For more information on this subject, please contact us: email@example.com.
Whether they are lime or clay based, our products are healthy and recommended for anyone concerned about their health. They are recommended for people suffering from allergies or multiple hypersensitivities.
Many of their ingredients have long been known for their natural disinfectant and antifungal properties. They reduce the proliferation of bacteria and mold. All our finishes are antistatic, eliminating electrostatic charges and the attraction of dust and, consequently, the development of dust mites. However, it should be noted that for some people, allergies to natural products are possible.
These products remain healthy for humans, but their life cycle also tends to minimize their impact on the environment. Due to the nature of their components and a low transformation process, their manufacture is environmentally friendly. It is also made in socially respectful conditions for its workers. Kreidezeit and Auro are in northern Germany, near the port of Hamburg, and the products are transported by boat, which significantly reduces our carbon footprint. Finally, most of the residues of our products are compostable, and in any case, they are suitable for household waste, unlike the residues of synthetic coatings, which remain hazardous products.
Full declaration of ingredients
We opt for transparency and disclose all the components used in the manufacture of the products we offer. The guarantee of a complete labeling allows you to make a critical evaluation of both health and environment impacts.
Transportation and CO2
Kreidezeit and Auro products are manufactured in northern Germany, near the Port of Hamburg. Our products are transported by ship in large containers. Sea transport is the most fuel-efficient means of transport. Therefore, the carbon footprint of transporting a pallet of our products by ship would be roughly equivalent to its journey by truck over 40 km.
