Auro 160 Colours Chart

Auro 160 Natural Wood Stain is an eco-friendly, breathable, and non-toxic water based wood stain suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. Specially formulated to offer a high performance organic alternative to conventional woodstains, this outstanding vegan-friendly woodstain protects against weather, water, dirt, and UV (please note that the clear version does not feature UV protection).

Auro 160 is a high performance natural and eco-friendly interior and exterior water based timber treatment that will allow your wood to breathe naturally. This stain does not need stripping before being re-coated, making it ideal for garden applications such as fences and outbuildings. Offering durable protection against the elements, this natural woodstain dries to a beautiful semi translucent and satin finish.


Auro 160 came TOP out of 22 conventional paints and wood stains in tests carried out by the German equivalent of Which! magazine. Because they are natural, pure, and contain no solvents, they are suitable for use in organic gardens. BBC Homes and Gardens recently featured Auro 160, highlighting its suitability for play areas. Thanks to its neutral, natural recipe, Auro 160 is also safe and perfect to use for cots and children's toys.

ECO PACKAGING: Testers use bio degradable corn starch infill packing pieces (these are only suited to testers and very light weight items though); on larger products we either use recycled/recyclable brown paper or we’re just starting to use pulped cardboard inserts for 2.5l and 5l tins - these are recycled and can either be recycled with household cardboard, composted or several people use them as firefighters!
