Eco Stucco products are also greatly appreciated for their ease of application. Plaster artisans praise the EcoStucco finish systems for their flexibility and convenient workability. Smooth, monolithic finishes can be achieved over a wide array of substrates with a productivity any contractor wishes for. Pot life and set times adequately contribute to better efficiency and reduced waste on job sites. Lime plaster is far more durable and versatile than any other types of plaster available today. It is less prone to cracking from settling and shrinkage that its cement counterpart. In all climates, lime plaster provides lasting protection over a wide array of substrates. Most importantly, it is permeable to water vapor. In other words, unlike with acrylic stucco, moisture freely evaporates. Any excess moisture is prevented from being trapped inside the wall by a favorable evaporation out of the outer skin.

Natural, organic soap, made true to the ancient soap used by the Romans. Dark in color, its key ingredient is olive oil. Black soap is a vital ingredient in the art of fine lime plaster finishes and particularly the Tadelakt of Morocco. When applied on fresh plaster, the oil comes in contact with moisture that contains calcium particles. When polishing, the cream penetrates the plaster, creating a durable waterproofing skin while adding richness and luster to the finish.
