Natural cosmetic oils for wood
From inorganics to organics
Plants take energy from the environment in the form of sunlight or inorganic chemicals and use it to create fuel molecules such as carbohydrates and organic molecules. This mechanism is called primary production (Autotroph). 
Feeding the planet
Other organisms, called heterotrophs, take in autotrophs as food to carry out functions necessary for their life. Thus, heterotrophs (animals) depend on autotrophs, obtaining energy by breaking down carbohydrates or oxidizing organic molecules (fats and proteins).
Prodigious raw materials
Lipid biosynthesis is a primary metabolic pathway in plants, the seed reserve tissue, can contain more than 60% of triglycerides (lipids). During the synthesis of triglycerides two biosynthetic processes take place, unsaturation and elongation, which determine the two fundamental characteristics of vegetable oils for industrial and technological purposes.
Natural wooden protection
Oils from seeds are a special natural source for the manufacturing of formulations for wood protections. The chemical composition of seeds offers a diversified repository of chemical molecules that are best suited to nourish and to regenerate the inner wooden structure.

Borma Wachs products are tested and approved by IBR, Intitut für Baubiologie Rosenheim. The performed analysis certify that our products are complying in terms of VOC content, biocides, heavy metals and radioactivity, guaranteeing full eco-compatibility with Green Building principles.
This product's safety is guaranteed more than just by EN 71-III certificate. Its safety for children is supported by DIN 53160/1-2 and DIN 68861/1 (Resistance to saliva and sweat; Resistance to cold liquids ) certificates as well. The product does not release harmful substances even when in contact with common alimentary liquids or mucuous membrane.
The product acts as fire retardant
Labeling of construction products
This label covers the French legislation relating to emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOC) and the impact they have on indoor air quality after the product is brought into the room.
Labeling refers to the pollutants emitted once the products are spread and dried.

The IBR Green Building Institute had tested some of our products and determined that they correspond to the highest standards of the aforementioned French VOC legislation.
