Unearthed Paints is a family owned and operated company based in Louisville, Colorado. Unlike conventional paint which uses petrochemical or synthetic ingredients, Unearthed Paints' zero-VOC products are made with raw ingredients such as clay, chalk, marble, and earth and mineral pigments. All Unearthed paints, plasters, and wood finishes are vegan, which means they do not contain animal products and have never been tested on animals. Their full line of products include paints, plasters, wood finishes, primers and thinners, bulk pigment, and shielding paint. All the products are made in Germany, where they were sold for over 30 years under the name Kreidezeit, and then shipped to Colorado using energy-efficient, carbon-offset shipping. (This is also the reason many of the paints are sold in powder form, as the cost of shipping powder is significantly less energy-intensive than shipping pre-mixed liquid paints. Shipping powdered paints also allows the company to sell products that do not contain chemical preservatives, as powdered paint can be stored without spoiling for several years.) Clay paint starts at $49 per gallon; Vega paint starts at $39 per gallon; Plasters start at $29 and Wood Finishes start at $15. Image via Unearthed Paints
