In 1987 antique furniture restorer Gene Ruelle of Ruelle Restorations developed and introduced Finisher's Formula.® a non-toxic, scientific blend of carefully selected oils and pure beeswax for feeding and polishing fine woods and antiques. Finisher’s Formula® is the non toxic and a 100% goof-proof beeswax furniture polish. Finisher's Formula® works on finished and unfinished fine woods and antiques.
Finisher’s Formula® beeswax polish has been used in National Historic homes, museums, universities, country clubs and by restorers, antique dealers and collectors for many years. Finisher's Formula® is different from traditional furniture polishes because most, like lemon oil, are a petroleum distillate base and have the tendency to evaporate quickly. That is why when you use lemon oil or other like polishes on your antiques, they look good for a little while, but over time the finish returns to a tired appearance and eventually will break down. Spray polishes contain silicates, which after a while will also destroy finishes.
Finisher's Formula® has the consistency of a lotion and is very easy to use. There is no hard buffing, just apply and wipe! Beeswax has been used for centuries to preserve finishes and paintings. On antique furniture, beeswax puts a barrier coat to protect and brighten the existing finish. Finisher's Formula is an antique furniture care product primarily, but many have used Finisher's Formula® as their choice of finish on pine, oak, walnut, mahogany and other exotic woods. Finisher's Formula brings your antiques, wood cabinets, leather and fine furniture to life. See why beeswax has been used for centuries to preserve and protect heirlooms. Finisher’s Formula® is 100% Biodegradable, Non Toxic, Contains No Silicates, No Petroleum Distillates and is offered in Unscented form only.
In 1997, the restorers at Ruelle Restorations wanted to develop a paste wax to compliment Finisher’s Formula Polish and Feeder.
It took eight years of rigorous testing and blending to achieve the ultimate all natural, non toxic beeswax paste. Finisher's Touch is a pure beeswax paste with a touch of carnauba wax to enrich fine woods and heirloom furniture.
Just like Finisher’s Formula, this all natural beeswax paste excels on finished or unfinished woods. It works wonderfully on previously waxed or highly polished finishes as well. Finisher’s Touch contains no solvents or scents. Finisher’s Touch produces a wonderful beeswax patina over time. The 4 oz jar is highly concentrated and was developed at our antique furniture restoration shop which has over four decades of continuous operation by the Ruelle family.
From your most cherished heirlooms to your finest woods, this is the all natural non toxic paste wax for you! Combine Finisher's Formula and Finisher's Touch to achieve a lasting glow on antique furniture and fine woods. As a culinary wax, Finisher's Touch is the premier non-toxic beeswax wood finish for use on all wooden kitchen utensils such as cutting boards, salad bowls, wooden spoons, butcher block tops, wood surfaces, etc. Finisher's Touch is an all natural beeswax formula and the safest wax to use around children, food and wood surfaces that may contact food. This all natural butcher block wax is easy to use, protects wood surfaces against damaging moisture and produces a rich, beautiful beeswax finish. Finisher's Touch was selected by Tiffany and Company as the service wax for the Frank Gehry jewelry line which incorporates exotic woods in his creations.
