Old Fashioned Milk Paint is the First USDA Certified Biobased Paint

The Old Fashioned Milk PaintCo., Inc. has won USDA Biobased Certification for its Old Fashioned Milk Paint. The USDA Certified Biobased Product Label verifies that the paint’s renewable biobased ingredients meet or exceed USDA standards. Biobased products are materials composed of agricultural, forestry, or marine materials. Old Fashioned Milk Paint and the company's newest formula, SafePaint for walls, are made from natural materials including milk protein (casein), crushed limestone, clay and earth pigments.

“We are pleased to take part in the USDA’s Biobased Labeling program and hope it will further set our natural paint apart from the many chemically produced paints currently on the market” said Anne Thibeau, the milk paint company’s President.

According to the USDA, consumers can feel secure in the accuracy of the biobased claim and can make better informed purchasing decisions.

"We are pleased that The Old Fashioned Milk Paint Co., Inc. has earned the USDA Certified Biobased Product Label," said Ron Buckhalt, USDA BioPreferred Program Manager. "Biobased products provide opportunities to help add value to renewable commodities, create jobs in rural communities, and generate investment income."

All products approved for the Federal preferred purchasing program must use the version of the label that contains the symbol “FP” (Federally Preferred). These milk paints fall within the USDA BioPreferred Interior Paints & Coatings Designated Category and are thus identified for Federal preferred purchasing.

USDA is the lead agency for both the voluntary labeling and Federal preferred purchasing programs. More detailed program information and additional resources are available at www.biopreferred.gov.
