A Brief Guide To Osmo Products

Osmo natural oil finish

Hardwax oil is gaining more and more popularity in Canada. It’s one of the most durable wood finishes, it’s easy to maintain, and it doesn’t obscure the look of wood like some traditional durable finishes do.

When it comes to hardwax oil, Osmo is one of the most popular names in the game. They’re a German company that has been in business for over 140 years, and they make one of the best hardwax products on the market, the Osmo Polyx-Oil.

That’s just the start of what Osmo has to offer. In this brief guide, we’re going to take a look at some of the products that Osmo has available and why they’re special. By the time you’re done, you’ll understand why we love telling our customers whenever we have new Osmo products in stock at our lumber store in Ottawa.

Osmo products are easy to use

Osmo has gone out of its way to ensure that its products are user-friendly, saving time and labour. One of the most notable examples of this is their popular Polyx-Oil. With most traditional hardwax oils, buffing is an essential step. Not with Polyx-Oil - there’s no buffing required, and the application is simple.

All of Osmo’s products follow this same easy-to-use philosophy. They have oils that are specially formulated for certain projects, like finishing cutting boards. And all of their products are extremely durable, which means you’re less likely to need to reapply Osmo products. They also help to ensure that your project is easy to maintain once it’s finished.

Osmo wants to keep you and the planet healthy

From cutting boards to kitchen tables, woodworking and food go hand-in-hand. That’s why it’s important to be sure you choose a finishing product that’s food safe. Osmo makes this easy - almost all of their products are food safe.

One of the reasons you can eat from surfaces finished with many Osmo products is that they’re made from natural oils that are low in VOCs. You’ll see ingredients like sunflower oil and soybean oil or waxes like carnauba and candelilla in many Osmo products. That means you and your family can breathe easy, knowing that you’re using renewable, non-toxic finishing products for your wood pieces.

Osmo offers a wide assortment of different products

Looking to finish an indoor piece? Osmo can help. Have an outdoor piece that you need to waterproof? Osmo can help with that, too. They have a full range of interior and exterior finishing products. Their products also come in a variety of different colours and with a variety of effects.
