Natural care for wooden cutting boards

Discover Uulki plant-based wood care for chopping boards as alternative for beeswax

Uulki natural wood wax is the perfect wood care for all your wooden chopping boards, kitchen utensils, countertops, serving boards, butcher blocks, etc. A wooden chopping board, kitchen utensil or worktop is a real addon in every kitchen. Just be aware that it may suffer considerably from daily handling during cooking. First of all, a cutting board or butcher block has to endure cutting and carving dame from your knife. This is a tough job! Secondly, a chopping board or cooking utensil comes into contact with water almost daily during cleaning. And once the wooden product has been rinsed, it start drying. This constant process of soaking water and drying exhausts the wood and may cause damage. Your wooden chopping board may start to bend, show cracks or split if you don’t take care of it properly. Uulki natural wood wax addresses this issue: it gives wooden cutting boards, countertops, and kitchen utensils a nourishing, protective layer as a result of which your wooden kitchenware will have a longer lifespan. That’s great news for your chopping board, your wallet and the environment!

Wood wax makes your wooden chopping board or countertop water repellent

Uulki plant-based / vegan wood wax is the alternative for beeswax

Beeswax has been dominating the market when it comes to waxes for the treatment of wooden cutting boards and other wooden items. However, the massive production of beeswax is putting great stress on the environment. The reason for this is that ever more beehives are being installed. This leads to ever more honeybees competing for food with wild bees and bumblebees. This is a real challenge in our current environment where green areas and flowers are becoming rare. Meanwhile, in the process of harvesting beeswax, many bees are being killed. If they’re not being killed, they’re deprived of their own winter food supplies for which they have been working really hard. Instead they need to settle with a sugar solution provided by their beekeeper. Therefore beeswax is far from ecological nor animal-friendly. Uulki wood wax is kind to the bees and our environment, since it does not contain animal derived ingredients, but is 100% plant-based / vegan instead.

How to finish finish a wooden chopping board, countertop, or kitchen utensil?

Remove surplus paste with a cloth. The first time, treat 2 to 3 times. After that, treat the wood regularly with Uulki natural wood care to ensure maximum protection. This will guarantee a long lifespan. Moreover, this way the water repellent layer can be renewed over and over again. Read our complete guide on cutting board maintenance with many tips and tricks!
