Food Safe and Care
Unless otherwise noted, all bowls, utensils and kitchenware are food safe and intended for regular use.
Paint: For color I use milk-paint; a non-toxic paint that has been used for hundreds of years. Milk paint comes in powder form and is mixed with water for application. There are three ingredients: lime, casein (protein derived from milk, used as a binding agent), and natural pigments. The paint I use is made from 100% organic materials, and non toxic, but technically is not vegan.
Oil: The oil I use is a a mix of linseed oil and beeswax composed of 100% renewable ingredients coming from trees, bees and seeds. No petroleum distillates, other solvents, or their derivatives are added, and are made from sustainable agricultural resources. Linseed oil is a plant derived material, pressed from the seeds of the flax plant. The beeswax used is a by-product of honey production All wood finishes comply with the product safety standards established by the FDA: “safe for food contact surfaces” (FDA 21, Sec 175.300).
Care: If you want your bowl or spoon to remain in the condition it is when you bought it, don't use it. All items I sell will age, but if you take care of them they will age like wine, and not a banana. Try to wash your product as soon as you are done using it with a mild soap and water, or, if you can get away with it, just water. Do not let items soak. Do not wash in a dishwasher. I recommend touching up oiled surfaces once a month if frequently used,using any number of food-safe oils like, walnut, coconut, or even olive oil.
