GROTON, MA. — The Old Fashioned Milk Paint Co. Inc. has won USDA Biobased Certification for its Old Fashioned Milk Paint. The USDA Certified Biobased Product label verifies that the paint’s renewable bio-based ingredients meet or exceed USDA standards. Bio-based 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.
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.
