Earthborn Ecopro Matt is a water-based emulsion used to coat interior walls and ceilings. It’s only available in white in 5L or 10L tubs. This is a highly breathable, low sheen emulsion and it’s especially good for new plaster. Touch dry in approximately 2 hours and recoat in 6 hours. You can apply Earthborn Ecopro Matt via brush, roller, or airless sprayer.

As with all Earthborn paints, Ecopro Matt is a product that has been developed with sustainability in mind. It contains a very low VOC content and no oils, making it safer to use around pets and children.


My Earthborn Ecopro Matt Emulsion Review


I’m a Professional Decorator, so I’ll base my review on overall performance, quality of finish, and value for money. I use a wide range of paints (mainly trade products). The price of Ecopro Matt Emulsion puts it in the high-end bracket for a trade paint, but it’s cheaper than most designer products. I don’t mind paying a premium for paints providing they perform well.


Earthborn Ecopro Matt Emulsion is a joy to use. It flows well, has a good open time, and you never have any problems with chunky roller marks. Opacity is fantastic too! A strong colour change can easily be achieved in two coats (opacity can be an issue with a lot of other white matt emulsion paints).

The overall appearance is fantastic! Ecopro Matt Emulsion has a very low sheen, which hides imperfections in plaster, and leaves a chalky finish. This is particularly good for ceilings in open plan or large rooms. “Brilliant white” ceilings show defects such as flashing and picture framing; a dull, chalky depth to a ceiling looks much better.

All said and done, I’m really impressed with this paint. I like a lot of Earthborn products; their Clay Paint is brilliant! Ecopro Matt Emulsion is another masterpiece. It’s better than any of the standard trade emulsion paints. It’s as good or better than high-end trade paints and many of the designer brands. I think you’ll really struggle to find a better ceiling paint for the same price.
