The Good Housekeeping Seal, issued by Good Housekeeping magazine, is one of the most recognized and respected consumer symbols of quality in the market today. Since 1909, the Seal has offered assurance to consumers about their product-purchasing decisions. Only products that have passed rigorous evaluations performed by the experts at the Good Housekeeping Institute (GHI) are granted the Seal.

Our products have a sterling reputation for color accuracy and durability, and we are grateful their performance is recognized and backed by the Good Housekeeping Seal.”

GHI scientists and engineers conduct a rigid qualifying process before granting the Seal. In keeping with a strict protocol, PPG products were methodically assessed in the GHI Engineering Lab. Technical and performance data were verified, and the products were evaluated to ensure that they perform as promised, including efficacy and ability to withstand environmental conditions.
