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 POLISH WITH BEESWAX

  1. Use the 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 open-weave cotton to gently buff the wax to your desired level of shine without 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.

    Great product, easy to use.

    First time trying to restore some G Plan furniture. Followed the ‘how to’ video and the table’s come up a treat! Am very proud of the result. Now ready to tackle more furniture!

    Rose Gold brings the life back to teak

    I originally purchased the trial pack of Pure Gold, Rose Gold and Antique Gold with the wire wool and polishing cloths. The Pure Gold wax was excellent on our light oak tables and the Rose Gold was superb on our old teak dining table. The results were so good I purchased the 1 litre tins of Rose Gold and Pure Gold - I now have to work my way around all our teak sideboard and book cases and have used the Pure Gold on my sons dining table and chairs all excellent results. The reason for the 4 stars is the delivery service used UPS were utterly hopeless on both deliveries. The products and advice are really excellent the delivery service is poor

    After asking for some advice I received far more information than I expected. My order arrived well packed with attention to detail. I haven’t used it yet but it smells wonderful. The sunflower seeds are also a great addition to pay the bees back for their hard work.

    Just the stuff to renovate my mid century sideboard

    Lovely stuff to use. Realised after watching the very helpful video that the underlying finish needs redoing so sent off for the hard wax oil. Now I’ve got the right stuff I’m looking forward to having a go with it to renovate my sideboard top
