A unique quality of our Wood Wax is that its formulation is free of mineral oil. Despite its name, mineral oil is a by-product of petroleum. When crude oil is processed, there are multiple distillates that are derived from this process. One of these petroleum distillates is mineral oil. Some grades of mineral oil are classified as “food safe” while others are not. Because of the petroleum origin of mineral oil, we chose to avoid using it in the formulation of Wood Wax so that you can have peace of mind.


Preserve and protect handmade wood products with Wood Wax by the Real Milk Paint Co. Whether you wish to add sheen to butcher block countertops, seal over milk paint, or coat rustic chairs to showcase the beauty of their grain, this wood salve has you covered with an easy-to-apply formulation that cures quickly for fuss-free use in record time.


In addition to finishing raw wood, Wood Wax also works great for maintaining items you’ve already finished with it. For instance, it serves particularly well as a cutting board wax, allowing you to refresh this kitchen staple quickly and easily. Simply apply it with a clean cloth to projects when you need to refresh and rejuvenate their previous sheen.
