AGLAIA is a protected trademark of BEECK`schen Farbwerke, Louis Gnatz GmbH. The name AGLAIA comes from Greek. The Greek goddess of love Aphrodite had a muse called AGLAIA. AGLAIA can be translated as “brilliance“, “splendour“, “shine“ and “beauty“, or the brilliance of the beautiful. Just as in Greek mythology, beauty and health are inseparable, we chose the name AGLAIA for our plant-based Natural Paints.
This reflects our intention that healthy paints with a beautiful finish should be compatible with nature. Since 1894 our company has been acquiring a lot of experience with pure natural mineral paints based on lime and water glass. In 1968 we began investing this experience in the development of plant-based paints.
All kinds of different motives determine our actions:
