Q. How is refined coconut oil different from other vegetable oils that can be found in the average kitchen?

Q. Why is rice bran wax used in your cutting board wax as opposed to beeswax?
A. We selected Rice bran wax for several reasons. It has a melting point of at least 10° higher than that of beeswax and is therefore a much harder wax. This gives wood and bamboo kitchenware a more durable finish. Rice bran wax exhibits superior hydrophobic characteristics making wood less permeable to moisture. Another reason we chose rice bran wax is because it is vegetal based providing for a vegan option.
