About our Wax:
Lareaux's Furniture Paste Wax was developed in-house after learning what really goes into commercially available paste wax products. We developed this product after we tried everyone else's waxes, creams and polishes, aiming for something superior.
We removed the harsh solvents that slowly degrade the finish of your furniture; From the high end woodworkers paste waxes (that contain turpentine or mineral spirits), to products like "Howard's feed n' wax" that contains the same solvent used in zippo lighter fluids (naphtha) to things like "pledge" that dry out the wood... This isn't stuff you want to put on your table or have around your family, let alone touch or come into contact with daily.
Then we tried recipes that contain olive oil and beeswax, and those weren't great either; just creating a hazy mess. Real woodworkers and furniture makers don't use this stuff and now we know why.
After playing around for several months, we developed a great product with NO harsh solvents. Our wax increases moisture resistance, suppleness and will condition and highlight the natural beauty of raw, reclaimed and finished furniture; both new and old.
Contains Organic Beeswax, Organic Carnuba Wax, Orange Oil and a third (food safe) secret ingredient.
