Gush air-purifying Cair paint
Protect With Paint
Not just for prettying up your interiors, wall paint now plays the role of keeping your home safe, too. We’re talking Singapore-based start-up Gush’s air-purifying Cair paint. The plant-based formula has minimal chemical additives, is free of VOCs and cleans the air by breaking down indoor pollutants into harmless substances with a proprietary catalyst.
It is also odourless, non-toxic, has anti-moulding and anti-bacterial properties, and regulates indoor humidity. According to the brand, tests have shown that the paint retains its air-purifying abilities for at least five to eight years.
Cair interior paint retails from $25 for a litre at www.gowithgush.com or the Gush store at #01-35 Nordcom II, 2 Gambas Crescent.

The Rhombus tile collection retails at Hafary, 105 Eunos Avenue 3; www.hafary.com.sg.
