Unearthed Paints, a manufacturer of eco-friendly paints and plasters, announces its new natural Hard Wax Oil finish designed to provide protection for wood, cork and stone in interior applications. Unearthed Hard Wax Oil is produced from natural raw materials, non-toxic, and VOC-free, according to the company.
Unearthed Hard Wax Oil finish provides a natural, breathable silky-matte finish that penetrates deep into the pores to enhance the wood's natural beauty, the company noted. "It penetrates the pores of the wood, but does not leave an unattractive layer on top of the wood, which allows the natural beauty of your wood floor to shine through," said Jessica Pfohl, Unearthed Paints founder.
Unearthed uses sustainable raw materials in their Hard Wax Oil finish, such as linseed oil, carnauba wax, tung oil, and colophonium glycerine ester (produced by pine tree sap). Unearthed Paints Hard Wax Oil is made by melting Carnauba Wax and colophonium resin into a mixture of linseed oil and tung oil. The product does not contain water or solvents, but is solely made from natural oils, resins and waxes.
Unearthed Paints also offers Safflower Wax, a hand-applied wax for furniture and made using natural beeswax, safflower oil and stand oils. For more information, visitwww.unearthedpaints.com.
