With a slight odor of flax and orange, wood oils, with the exception of protective oil, are composed of vegetable oils (flax and soy), a mild thinner that is practically odorless (mineral oil and essential oil of oranges), essential oil of flowers and conifers (to sanitize the wood and nourish it for energy) and lead-free driers (to accelerate the drying time). Depending on the product, beeswax, carnauba wax and microcrystalline wax can be added in different proportions. For the sake of transparency, the full list of ingredients used in each product appears on the label of each of our products.
All our products give off very little volatile organic compounds (C.O.V.) on application and drying, unlike oils that use turpentine or aromatic petroleum distillates as a solvent. However, we still recommend that you ventilate your workplace well and always wear nitrile gloves when handling the product.
* We would like to remind you that the oils for wood and thinner contain solvents (essential oils). It is therefore advisable to follow the precautions for your safety.
* Note that EcoSelection wood oils are very effective on concrete, slate and hemp and lime finishes.
EcoSelection Wood Oils and EcoSelection Wax are among the products that best retain the warm, natural appearance of wood, while enhancing its beauty. EcoSelection products bring out the grain of the wood and allow direct contact with the material, rather than being in contact with the plastic layer left on the surface of the wood by the varnishes. In the long run, oil-treated wood acquires a darker color, which creates a patina specific to EcoSelection products.

When you have oiled surfaces, it is important, to preserve them for a long time, to maintain them properly. Always use lukewarm water, cooler than hot, and occasionally add oiled wood soap. Oil-based, this soap will nourish your surface. Commercial soaps are first and foremost detergents. Detergents are used to dislodge fatty substances. The same goes for heat (hot water) which dissolves fat. The oil being a fatty substance, even dried, will eventually withdraw on the surface and reduce the duration of protection of your oil.
This natural and ecological soap is composed of olive oil, sunflower oil, saponified coconut oil, castor oil and essential oil of melaleuca (tee tree oil).
The precise mixture of three different types of wax provides maximum protection and skates wonderfully. The wax can be applied directly to bare wood or over a dried oil. Unlike oils, wax is a surface coating, it does not penetrate. It offers waterproof protection on the surface. On resinous woods, it has the advantage of preserving the pallor of the wood and considerably slows down the oxidation of the latter which causes yellowing. It is possible to mix a small quantity (1 portion maximum of 100 ml of oil colored for 100 grams of wax) to obtain a colored wax which will give a slight tint to your wood.
