Our vegan spoon salve is made of candelilla wax and organic coconut oil. We put it on all of our goods, both wooden and copper as the last step of finishing.
We created this alternative because many spoon and board waxes are created with beeswax and mineral oil. Mineral oil is a petroleum byproduct (and will eventually start to smell that way), and we chose to use candelilla wax rather than beeswax in order to keep our vegan customers happy, and it's also a superior wax for foodgrade items because of its higher hardness. Our salve is sustainable, smells like a garden, and preserves your wooden tools. It can be put on tables, butcher blocks, and all wooden utensils, and it even feels great on your hands!
