New Delhi [India], March 30 (ANI/Mediawire): In the past year, we have been reading and hearing a lot about the pandemic and how it has changed all our lives. Work from home is the new norm and with increased time spent indoors, the wellness and safety of our indoor environment become a priority for family members. While this has led to widespread concern for everyone's safety, it forces us to consider the safety aspect of the most vulnerable demography - children (including toddlers).
It is imperative for parents to adopt all key safety measures to ensure the health and well-being of their children and all family members at home. A key aspect of a safe home is to have safe interior walls as children tend to touch, lean on and even scribble on them.
To cater to this often-overlooked aspect, Nippon Paint has curated the Wellness and Hygiene range of wall paints. The range consists of Nippon Paint KIDZ, Nippon Paint OdourlessAircare, Nippon Paint Satin Glo+ and Nippon Paint Satin Glo Prime. These paints can contribute to the safety and well-being of the entire family, but they will be extra beneficial in safeguarding children against bacteria, fungi, harmful chemicals, and impure air.
Indoor air pollution caused by wall paints can cause big health problems among children, older adults, and people with chronic illnesses. Using healthy wall paints at home is not the first thing that comes to mind when we talk about wellness measures for the family but countless researches have shown the harmful effects of properties like formaldehyde, VOC (volatile organic compounds) and lead, which can be present in ordinary paint. Hence, it is important to use paints that are eco-friendly since they have low VOC content. Nippon Paint Wellness and Hygiene products have numerous properties which are backed by Advanced Japanese technology, making it the perfect choice for your family's wellness needs.
Before launching Nippon Paint KIDZ two years ago, the R&D team arrived at three key findings and corresponding solutions to counter them, all under one product - The KIDZ paint. First, newborns have up to 3 times the respiratory rate of adults - so safe air quality is extremely important for developing lungs. The Anti-formaldehyde technology for Clean Air property enables air-purification by absorbing harmful formaldehyde present in the air as well as formaldehyde emitted by other household articles like wooden furniture leaving just fresh air that is child-safe.
Second, babies and toddlers spend the majority of their time indoors making them most prone to bacteria, viruses, mould and fungi. anti-viral & Anti-bacterial for Safe touch property assures 99 per cent of germ and infection-free environment for child's growth. Third, 76 per cent of parents said that their children use the wall to learn how to draw and for other cognitive skills. Superior Washability with anti-stain technology ensures that walls can be cleaned effortlessly even after 1, 00,000 scrubs, allowing children's creativity to be encouraged. These paints give walls a new lease of life and aid in improving a child's cognitive skills. After all, scribbling on the walls is a child's natural plunge into creativity and self-expression. And sometimes letting your children indulge in some creative freedom over the walls is not such a bad idea when your walls are washable.
Paint brands like Nippon Paint have upped the game in indoor safety by manufacturing water-based, microbe-repellent, washable paints that are available in a delightful array of colours. These products contain breakthrough odour-less technology, low VOC, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties, easy washability, durability and scrub ability, among other properties. These high-tech features are present in all Nippon Paint wellness& hygiene products.
Nippon Paint KIDZ empowers all parents to give their children clean air to breathe, safe indoor environments and the freedom to be creative through every stage of their development from infanthood, to toddlerhood to childhood while Nippon Paint OdourlessAircare is inbuilt with active carbon technology converting harmful formaldehyde into the clean fresh air.
Nippon Paint Satin Glo+ and Nippon Paint Satin Glo Prime are other advanced interior wall emulsion specially formulated with excellent washability and stain resistance to keep the walls not just beautiful, but also safe to touch. All these paint variants contain anti-bacterial technology, which renders the walls safe for human touch, especially children who tend to touch/scribble on the walls. These paints with their ultra-low VOC, additionally do not contain lead or mercury, making them the perfect choice for eco-sensitive buildings.
Be it a family that's preparing for a new baby's arrival, or one with toddlers indulging actively in this lockdown, the importance of safeguarding home walls cannot be overstated. It is crucial to note that low-quality paints can emit harmful chemicals such as formaldehyde, which is immensely harmful to both mother and the baby in the long run.
Children grow up faster than our thoughts, and before we know it, your baby would become a scribble-happy toddler who loves to unleash her creativity on her first canvas, the walls. So, whether you are refurbishing your child's room or giving your entire home a new look, it is critical to ensure that your home walls are covered with hi-tech, eco-friendly and durable paints, and of course, lots of love. Happy parenting!
