Osmo uses food safe, natural ingredients for the basis of their wood finishes, waxes and pigments, including sunflower, soya, linseed and thistle oil, which is good for customers and wood alike.
Osmo products contain disaromatised white spirit to ensure finishes spread easily, removing the need for so called "Green solvent" materials which can cause allergies.
Natural beauty of oils and waxes
Wood is a natural material, the cell structure, similar to our skin, can take on and release moisture, it breathes. To ensure that this exchange is not prevented we have created finishes especially suited to the character of the wood.
Osmo natural wood finishes are based on oils and waxes, the oil penetrates into the wood surface, protecting from deep within. The waxes form an elastic, micro-porous surface which protects the wood from external influences. The wood remains naturally beautiful, protected and durable.
