Are Your Paints Vegan?

Yes, Tikkurila paints are vegan. Our paints are 100% synthetic in composition, and so do not contain any animal by-products (including shellacs or milk proteins). This is true across both our decorative and industrial ranges.

In addition, Tikkurila does not test its products on animals.  However, all EU paint manufacturers are guided by REACH (the regulation for the animal testing of chemicals). To ensure chemical and user safety, some of the raw material substances used in paints are tested on animals by the raw material supplier. Details of this testing process are not fully disclosed to the manufacturer. Alternative testing methods are being developed. Animal testing of chemicals is the last resort. Chemical manufacturers carry out new tests only when they have exhausted all other relevant and available data sources. The European Chemical Agency (ECHA) gives guidance on which chemical products require animal testing.
