About our Manufacturer
Ellen Kennon Full Spectrum Paints are blended using Akzo Nobel's (formerly ICI Paints) highest quality "Lifemaster" and "Diamond 350" product lines. Although the company has re-branded their stores and labels "Glidden Professional", the products haven’t changed, only the label”. Glidden Professional MPI Conformance Certification Letters can be found on their website at GliddenProfessional.com/downloads.
All paints are low VOC and the Lifemaster product is VOC-free (perfect for people with allergies) and is a certified "green" product by the U.S. Green Building Council. "VOC" is short for "volatile organic compounds" that are harmful to our health and our environment. When exposed to sunlight, VOCs produce ground level ozone, a major contributor to air pollution, indoors and out--harmful to both human health and agricultural crops.
Akzo Nobel/ICI has over 500 stores nationwide that can formulate Ellen's colors, once an order is placed through her office. Then, all the customer has to do is pick up the paint at their local paint store. While samples can be ordered online, Ellen recommends that you order the paint by phone to receive personal help to ensure you are getting the best product for each project.
