For humanity – in harmony with the environment

Since its foundation Lascaux has promoted water-soluble systems.

The high quality water Switzerland is renowned for and which is additionally energised by Lascaux is an important precondition for the standard of our products. Lascaux colours are produced without additive solvents, and they are qualified as poison-free. Only the sturdiest raw materials and finest pigments are used. They are precisely adjusted for every individual composition. Practically every Lascaux product is refined on the triple roll mill after the blending procedure.
