ProNature Truly eco-friendly wall paints, wood and stone finishes
In a world where synthetic- and petroleumbased lacquers, laminates, paints and thinners are everyday solutions to our ever-changing environment, ProNature provides a real alternative - A range of entirely natural sealants and treatments for many interior and exterior paint applications. Paints and other decorative finishes made from natural raw materials are aimed at the market as direct replacement for today‘s conventional paints manufactured from petrochemicals.
The specially formulated and researched ProNature products offer the purest, environ- mentally sound alternatives to treating, waterproofing and maintaining wood and mineral surfaces. ProNature has been producing the only locally manufactured range of 100% natural paints and finishes in South Africa for more than a decade now.
For reasons of environmental safeness and ease of restoration, surfaces like wooden floors should not be “sealed”. Even though the hardness of two component synthetic coatings can not be achieved with natural coatings, synthetic coatings are also not entirely safe from scratching and wear and can only be repaired by complete removal and recoating. This is never the case with ProNature’s natural coatings and treatments because they are absorbed by wood and stone, thereby nourishing and protecting from the inside out rather than by sealing off the surface. Maintenance or repairs are simply done by applying a fresh layer of ProNature natural coatings.
ProNature coatings and treatments have the added advantage not to contain any ingredients, which could cause harmful emissions, like formaldehyde or aromatic solvents
The main ingredients for ProNature products are: Plant oils, i.e. Linseed oil, Sunflower Oil, Tung oil, Beeswax and Carnauba wax; Natural solvents, i.e. Orange peel oil and Gum turpentine; Essential oils, i.e. Eucalyptus oil and Rosemary oil.
ProNature strives for highest local content in sourcing raw materials, promotes their unique products by providing information and samples to the public and the professions and promotes involvement of urban communities in providing raw materials, i.e. the growing of linseed oil.
