Nowadays, with green design practices being made into a standard by professionals in the construction and design industry, the search for more earth-friendly products has been gaining momentum. Paint brands have also been catching up, as these brands come up with products that highlight a safer formulation, like low VOC (volatile organic compounds) content. 

Dulux Professional couldn't have come to the Philippines at a better time. Manufactured by AkzoNobel, a global paints and coatings company and a producer of specialty chemicals, Dulux caters to all your coating needs, may it be for building exterior, walls inside your house, coatings for ships and cars and even for your mobile phones. 

Dulux paints give you beautiful color choices, but the brand doesn't stop at that. It can help you save energy because they reflect light, keeping your home from absorbing too much heat from the sun. It doesn't matter if you use white paint or a dark color—the paints will reflect light just as well. And with less heat inside your home, you won't have to keep your air conditioner turned on for a longer period of time, thus cutting down energy costs. 

And because they reflect light, when you use Dulux paints inside your home, your room will be brighter, so you do not need to turn on the lights during the day, as natural light is enough. In fact, you can use a low-wattage light bulb because you no longer need a brighter bulb with higher wattage to illuminate your room. 

Aside from the energy-saving features, Dulux paints do not absorb stains, so your walls are easier to clean. They also last long, as these have passed the jungle testing where the paints are exposed to harsh conditions. You won't have to repaint your walls often, so you save on home improvement costs. 

You can get these paints through Dulux's local distributors, Mega Paint Corporation and Woodcare Tech Marketing Philippines, Inc.
