Safe, water based, non toxic, made from natural ingredients, plastic free, Vegan and breathable

It meets the criteria of the French VOC regulation, is AgBB-compliant and therefore especially recommended for living and sleeping areas.

I hate painting headaches too. I hear you. Maybe that’s why you’re here.

The reason you had headaches the last time you were painting  was due to the awful toxic chemicals big brands put in their paint to make them cheap and quick drying. It doesn’t have to be this way!

This easy to use water based natural alternative to conventional chemical wood stain by Auro is a fantastic solution.

Use this natural wood stain like any other wood stain, knowing that it still offers great UV protection, great stain protection and all those good things, but without the environmental damage and decreased air quality in your home.

“Conventional paint accounts as for the source of 58% of all plastic microbeads ending up in the oceans.
Horrible, and unnecessary in 2024!”

This paint contains zero microbeads. Oh and for extra bonus points this paint is Vegan, breathable and environmentally friendly.

Toy Safe (DIN EN 71-3), Sweat and saliva resistance (DIN 53160), Meets the criteria of the French VOC regulation, AgBB-compliant and therefore especially recommended for living and sleeping areas.

Chris Why trust us? We’re a family owned small business, that started due to me (Chris) failing to find paints that would be suitable around my own asthmatic family 10 years ago. I realised that other people needed to know the info I found out, and it all grew from there. Read more about us here.


  • We advise at least 2 coats.
  • No primer needed
  • Water thin 5% if you would like it to apply easier / go further.

Other Information

Auro 560 is the modern version of the older Auro 160 wood stain. The main differences are that the 560 is a newer recipe, which now means that all colours, including colourless are UV protective.

Auro 560 The only downside is that Auro 560 contains (by EU law) trace MI (preservative).
So technically, although ‘trace’, Auro 560 is not MI free.
