FAQ

  • For how long can ProNature Products be stored?

    ProNature Products can be stored for a minimum of 1 year in unopened containers, at temperatures, ranging from 10° – 30° C. ProNature Wall Paints have a shorter shelf-life and should be used within 4 months.

  • How can I clean/repair wood once treated with ProNature Products?

    ProNature Finishes are spot repairable and should small damages from wear or scratching occur just clean the area thoroughly with ProNature Plant Turpentine where necessary, and sand concerned area lightly with steel wool or fine scouring pad. Remove dust and apply a thin layer of ProNature Floor, Table Top, Outdoor or Rock with a soft cloth. Thereafter i.e. floors are cleaned with a neutral soap solution, like our ProNature Plant Soap and wiped with a damp cloth only.

  • Is ProNature Plant Turpentine harmful to the skin?

    As ProNature Plant Turpentine has very good fat dissolving properties it is advised that your skin is not exposed to the product and adequate protection is applied.

  • How do I clean my tools after using ProNature Products?

    Use ProNature Plant Turpentine for cleaning brushes, rollers, equipment and surfaces.

  • What safety precautions does one have to follow, what to do if the oil is swallowed?

    Soaked, used cloths may spontaneously combust, and should be spread open, or kept safely in a tightly sealed tin after use.
    Even though most of our ingredients are used for medicinal purposes they should not be ingested. If swallowed contact your local medical practitioner for advice. Do not induce vomiting!

  • Are there any smells or fumes or health risks?

    The only smell pleasantly recognised is that of essential oils like orange peel oil or of the plant oils itself. None of these is dangerous and the smell will disappear during drying. Adequate ventilation should be provided with any application of ProNature products. Natural paints and finishes can have a strong characteristic fragrance from the natural raw materials used in the product. Therefore please consider possible allergies.

  • How long is the drying time?

    Allow a 12-hour drying time in between coats. Most products fully cure within 7 days but are dry within at least 48 hours. Please avoid water clean up of fresh surfaces during the drying period. Our ProNature Wall will take longer to cure.
    Water resistance improves with age.
