Jarhead Wood Wax - Cutting Board Finishing Wax
This is our finishing product that started us in the wood care product line. It can be used on virtually any wood surface not just reserved for Cutting Boards.
We start by using Food Grade Mineral Oil and coconut oil to soak into the wood grain which also provides natural antibacterial properties. Next we melt and combine organic beeswax giving the wood an additional layer of protection against stains and bacteria. We finish it off with Vitamin E and Lemon Peel Extract, this gives your board a fresh scent and helps to fight off bacteria. Lastly because I am naming this product line Jarhead in honor of the Marine Corps; I had to ensure it included the tiniest amount of yellow crayon in it (don’t worry it is completely non-toxic and non-staining) which is actually made from paraffin wax.
Perfectly designed for new and old cutting boards. Apply a generous amount ensuring to coat all sides of your wood surfaces. Allow it to penetrate for 2-4 hours and use additional coats if it is absorbed quickly into the wood surface. The oil will soak into the wood, if the board feels wet after a couple hours, use a dry cloth to wipe off any excess. Lastly add a coat of a good food safe wood wax like the Jarhead Wood Wax.
Safe to use on: Butcher Blocks, wood cutting boards (especially bamboo), wood countertops, wood Bar tops and wooden serving trays. It would not be recommended to use on wooden utensils due to the amount of wax in this product, for those you should use the Jarhead Wood Paste or Jarhead Wood Oil only.
This wax is a soft wax that is easy to spread onto the board after regular cleanings.
This product is 100% non-toxic and safe for food contact.
