Professional Wood Finish Made Green
Vermont Natural Coatings’ PolyWhey™ wood finishes enhance the innate beauty of wood and preserve it with a durable shield that is environmentally safe for those who work with it and for those who live with it.
Vermont Natural Coatings use whey protein, a byproduct of cheese making, to displace toxic ingredients found in traditional finishes. PolyWhey® floor and furniture finishes and our new Exterior Penetrating Stain and Water Proofer, are the choice of professionals and do-it-yourselfers alike.
By using renewable whey proteins, a natural byproduct of the dairy industry this hard-wearing wood coating meets the highest professional and environmental standards.
"Vermont Natural Coatings is durable, extremely simple to work with, and results in a great finish. Someone with very little finishing know-how can successfully use it. I have used VNC in South Florida and here, in WNC, and find it to be versatile enough to use in both climates. I have found that VNC is also cost effective, a small amount goes a long way! It is low VOC and you can leave a can open without an offensive odor. The water based nature of Vermont Natural Coatings makes clean up a dream!"
Natural Hydraulic Lime
A safe natural, green building finish product, St Astier Natural Lime (NHL) is a time-honored, old world exterior finish, enjoying a modern comeback. The warm inviting hues create a soft, rich, texture that improves with age and takes on a character of its own. It is a healthy building material with no chemical additives.

American Clay Plaster
A natural environmentally friendly earthen plaster finish for interior walls and ceilings that is incredibly beautiful! American Clay is non-toxic and made in the U.S.A. There are many benefits to living with this sustainable healthy finish. Clay eliminates the need to repaint, resists dirt, it is easy to repair, will not fade, 100% natural, VOC-Free, moisture controlling, mold resistant, humidity buffering and so much more.
American Clay plasters are an alternative to paint, wallpaper, cement, acrylic and gypsum-based plasters. Clay provides a subtle organic depth that when you are surrounded by it, you can feel and appreciate. It is not just a finish but a calming experience.
There are numerous types of clay and finish options and we would love to show you examples of the broad range of clay types, finish options, and pigment choices.
