IMPROVED UV PROTECTION

Our commitment to preserving the natural beauty of your wooden furniture has led us to improve our beeswax polish formula by incorporating a UV absorber. This addition has been scientifically proven to significantly lessen the harmful effects of UV radiation from direct sunlight on wooden surfaces.

By integrating a UV absorber into our trusted beeswax polish formula, we provide additional protection that absorbs even more of the harmful UV rays before they can damage the wood or its finish. This advanced protection is especially crucial for pieces exposed to direct sunlight, helping to greatly reduce discolouration and extend the life of your furniture.

While it does not block all UV rays entirely, it acts as a crucial additional barrier, extending the life of your furniture and keeping its colour and finish vibrant.

ENVIRONMENTAL RESPONSIBILITY

Environmental preservation is very important to us and we make every effort to ensure our products have a minimal impact on the environment:

  • We are not driven by a corporate cost-reduction ethos. We select our components based on quality and sustainability rather than the cheapest alternatives
  • 100% Plastic-free recyclable packaging
    • 70% recycled cardboard and paper from FSC-approved mixed sources
    • Packing tape that is paper & cotton based with a water-based gum adhesive which can be recycled along with the cardboard boxes
    • No polypropylene-based tape. We use biodegradable raffia twine.
  • No petrochemical solvents, we use only pure pine gum spirits of turpentine
  • Reusable Le Parfait jars with a Return & Refill discount scheme
  • Our workshop roof is completely covered in solar panels and generates far more electricity than we consume

HOW TO USE OUR BEESWAX POLISH

  1. Use the included ultra-soft steel wire wool to apply
  2. With gentle pressure spread the polish evenly over the surface in the direction of the grain, being careful not to over apply and avoid any upholstered areas. Once applied the surface area should look matt in appearance
  3. Allow the pure pine turpentine to completely evaporate and the wax to harden for 20-30 minutes
  4. Use the included open-weave cotton buffing cloth to gently buff the wax to your preferred level of lustre. An open-weave cloth helps to prevent smearing.

Weekly furniture maintenance of removing dust can be done by simply using a slightly damp cloth and drying if needed with a clean dry cloth - beeswax polish will protect the surface for a very long time.

If you have a larger surface like the side of a chest of drawers or the top of a dining table apply the beeswax more evenly by dabbing the surface all over with small amounts of polish and then wipe in the direction of the grain to spread the wax evenly.

*SECRET TRADE TIP:

For carved relief areas such as an antique coffer, you can also apply beeswax furniture polish with a cheap 1 inch trimmed paint brush. It makes applying the beeswax much easier and allows the polish to get right into those dusty and hard to reach areas. Buff it 20 to 30 minutes later with the soft shoe brush and buffing cloth.

Gilboys Pure Gold

Delighted . I have , before finding Gilboys , struggled to find a wax that gives my furniture the love it deserves . I am slowly working my way through my home , using one of all three of the waxes and just to see the wood so restored is bringing me daily pleasure ,taking me back to my childhood.

wax polish for window cills

Haven’t used the product yet, will let you know when I have. I’m just wishing that I now ordered the three different shades instead as one of the window fills has some sun damage

Wonderful finish

So happy with the product it was exactly what we were after for the natural timber finish on our bathroom unit which we were renovating.

Pure Gold wax

Having used the Hard Wax Oil on my table I needed something to keep the quality finish. The Hard Wax Oil is more of a process and I needed something that could be done after, and periodically to maintain the lustre. Simon recommended the pure gold for my oak table top. It was easy to apply and compliments the hard wax oil. Great finish! I also love the idea I can return the glass container to refill, at a discount, thus reducing plastic and metal waste. I love these products. My go to guys for my woodworking projects and restoration.
