    • 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 petrochemical solvents, we use only pure pine gum spirits of turpentine
  • Reusable Le Parfait jars with a Return & Refill discount scheme

Update before and after

Have finally got to use this wax. The chair looks great, wax was very easy to us. YouTube video was very helpful. Gilboys help when I made enquiry has to recommending a hard wax oil to use. A very good company with top quality products.

Lovely product to use!

This Ercol easy chair was bought by my parents when newly married in 1957, and at some point in the ‘70s my father thought it would be a good idea to varnish it a horrible purple blue colour. I’ve only just now, on retirement myself and with time on my hands, stripped the frame back to plain beech, and the beeswax ‘pure gold’ finish from Gilboys is both a delight to apply and a gorgeous finish to look at, I’m very pleased with the result. The product came beautifully packaged too!

Great natural product

After an online search for 'natural and sustainable wax polish', I chose Gilboy's Pure Gold, and I'm very happy with the first coat results; one door down, 11 to go!
Easy to apply, easy to buff, all it requires is a little time and effort, and the sheen, and smell, is lovely.
There's a wealth of videos on YouTube to watch for how to's, the packaging is plastic free with great attention to detail, and I loved the free seeds for the bees. Will definitely be back for more.

New light oak bannister, spindles etc. and doors.

All the stair parts and doors were fitted unfinished.
Simon’s video on your website was invaluable. I took his advice for bare wood and first rubbed in clear hard wax oil after first sanding all smooth. After letting it all dry for a day or so I fine sanded smooth again. I then applied the pure gold bees wax polish with the 0000 Wire wool ( in the finishing kit I also ordered ) this went on lovely and smoothly. After a good half hour I polished it up. We are delighted with the results so far. The delay in reviewing was because it’s still work in progress.
I’ve previously used pure gold on oak furniture and always delighted with the result.
I will need to use the 25% off refill offer to fully complete the job.
The box of sweat peas is a lovely touch, these are already sprouting in the greenhouse.
Thank you Simon and the team for a great product and helpful advice.
