Our Urthware Premium cutting board wax finish is made from 100% organic ingredients.
100 ml (3.5oz) jar of our 100% Certified Organic MCT Coconut Oil, Certified Organic Blend of Canadian/USA Beeswax & Organic Carnauba wax Blend.
MCT Coconut oil, (Medium Chain Triglyceride) is made using a USDA certified organic process, where the fats are gently removed from virgin coconut oil that remain solid at room temperature, leaving high levels of capric and caprylic acids. Unlike NON-organic MCT Oils, there are no chemicals or filler oils used during this removal process this results in a pure, clean, natural product that also has a light natural fragrance of coconut.
This premium product is one of the most pure, natural and organic cutting board finish that can be made.
We even package in FDA approved glass jars instead of tin or plastic.
The addition of Pure Certified Organic Canadian locally sourced Beeswax, blended with the pure USA Organic beeswax adds a softer deeper penetrating wax for water resistance and protects all the surfaces of your cutting board.
The addition of a harder Organic Carnauba wax (that makes an even more durable surface wax) helps protect your wooden surfaces even to an even greater degree than beeswax alone
Contains NO artificial or petroleum based products, and no fillers ( i.e. Absolutely no mineral oil or paraffin wax)
Zero preservatives, Gluten free, Hexane free and as with all of our products it is absolutely all natural.
Note: If you have chosen a particular finish for us to finish your cutting board in (i.e. flax or coconut), we highly recommend choosing the same finish for maintenance. While technically you could let your board completely dry out and switch/mix finishes, we advise against it. Some finishes we make are drying oils and some are not. Mixing drying oils and non-drying oil finishes may change how they function.
This cutting board and butcher block finish (also, known as oil finish or board butter) is completely non-toxic and can be applied to everything made of wood in your home without worrying about anything toxic. Perfect for wooden utensils, knife handles, cutting boards, wooden counter tops (if not already finished in a synthetic finish), wooden high chairs, wooden plates, bamboo cutting boards, bamboo utensils, etc.
special note: If your wooden item has been previously finished in a hard top coat finish (lacquer, varnish, etc) as tables, chairs and countertops normally are. Oil finishes (synthetic or natural) will not penetrate this surface.
If your wooden item is previously finished in a petroleum based oil finish, such as most cutting board/butcher block butters (i.e. "mineral oil" finish) are. Wait until the synthetic/petroleum based finish has worn away (your wooden item looks dry and in need of oil) before attempting to oil with a natural oil. Test in an inconspicuous spot to make sure the oil soaks in evenly. Oiling a wooden item with a previous synthetic oil finish with a natural oil may not absorb evenly (patchy look). Though it may eventually even out.
We assume no liability for patchy application or any other issue that may occur on non-Urthware products, or any product with previous finishes (including but not limited to synthetic petroleum based finishes) as other finishes may be incompatible with our natural finishes.
*NOTE: *We are not a Tree nut/Nut free facility. Contact may occur. Choosing coconut oil as your finish does not mean there is no tree nut/nut contact possibility
Lasts approx. 10-15 board oilings based on a medium sized board (average depends on use and size of board and how dry your board is etc)
Note: Unless ordered with a cutting board (if ordered alone) this product ships without tracking for shipping to save on shipping costs for our customers.
Shelf life 12+ months depending on storage (cool dark place increases shelf life).
