Bio Pigments are used for tinting Bio Wall Paint or any other water-based paint. These environmentally-friendly colour pigments are available in a range of 10 colours and are intermixable to obtain the desired final colour.

Made from natural and non-toxic mineral pigments: Castor oil, resins, lemon oil, aluminum silicate, white earth pigments, china clay, iron oxides, metal pigments, earth pigments, calcium carbonate cellulose, mineral oil, borax, water, lecithin, etc., free of cadmium, chromates and lead chromates.


The standard colours are:

Red Brown
Blue Ochre
Violet Yellow
Orange Black
Golden Ochre Green

*Slight variations between colour lots are possible due to the use of natural ingredients.

Since all tints are intermixable, you can blend your own to achieve the required colour. However, a maximum ratio of 1: 1 tint and white is recommended because the tint itself is not a paint. Bio Wall Paints are supplied in base white or deep base. Use Bio Wall Paint White to obtain softer or pastel colour tone while Bio Wall Paint Deep Base for a bolder colour.
