What is Low VOC?

You may have noticed in our product list that one of the Gobelins Danish Oils we offer is one called Danish Oil Low VOC.

If at that point you’ve found yourself wondering, “what exactly is Low VOC?” then fear not, for here we have the answer.

Low VOC actually stands for: Low Volatile Organic Compounds. Great! Now you’re probably asking, “what the heck are Low Volactile Organic Compounds?!”

Simply put, VOC’s are organic chemical compounds which have high vapour pressures at room temperature and which can affect both your health and the environment.
VOC’s can be both man-made and natural compounds and a major source of man-made VOC’s are solvents. This is why products being ‘Low VOC’ are such a big deal and are highly sought after as they are considered the ‘greener’ option.

Our Danish Oil Low VOC is the same as the Danish Oil Original at its core but with the absolute minimum amount of solvent thereby allowing the product to be classified as ‘Low VOC’ with regards to its environmental footprint. Another great thing about this product is that it is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use!
