AN ALL-NATURAL, NON-FADING, PROTECTOR OF SOAPSTONE
Finally, an all-natural, earth-friendly product that can be used on Soapstone, concrete, slate, and other porous surfaces. “Soapstone Sealer” will provide a low luster finish on soapstone without the continuous reapplication that is required with mineral oil.
Soapstone Sealer from The Real Milk Paint Company is made from food-grade Walnut Oil and T 1 Carnauba Wax Flakes. There are no solvents added which means no VOCs (volatile organic chemical) or added fragrances. Soapstone Sealer is made with entirely plant-based ingredients making it a vegan-friendly finish. These ingredients means are safe for food to touch or lay on the surface without fear of contamination. This product can be applied to soapstone, marble, granite, slate, concrete, and any other honed natural stone surface. If the surface is polished it will not accept Soapstone Sealer. Walnut oil is a drying oil. As the walnut oil takes in oxygen it will polymerize or cure. This is why walnut oil does not go rancid. It will cure before it can spoil.
Soapstone Sealer is made from all-natural products and is not a petroleum product like mineral oil. Mineral oil, also known as petroleum distillate, is a byproduct in the distillation of petroleum to produce gasoline. Mineral oil is a non-drying oil. What this means is that it does not evaporate but is picked up and transferred around the house. This is how it disappears off the soapstone. Our Soapstone Sealer cannot be applied over a previously mineral oiled surface. Mineral oil must be removed before applying. (See Directions tab below.)
