Disaromatised white spirit ensures that the finishes are easy to spread, this allows us to do without so called "Green solvent" materials which can cause allergies, e.g. orange oil, as a general rule we also leave out preservatives.

Corporate Responsibility

The foundation of Osmo wood finishes has been based upon purified and refined natural resources throughout the last 30 years. The dry finish fulfils both the DIN EN 71.3 (suitable for children’s toys’) and DIN 53160 (fast to perspiration and saliva) and as such is safe for humans, animals and plants. Osmo uses carefully harvested natural oils (sunflower,- soya,- linseed,- and thistle oil) and hard waxes (Carnauba- and Candelilla wax) for it’s finishes. The inorganic pigments used for Osmo Color are created from natural ores, these are cleaned and refined until a level of physiological purity has been achieved and only a pure mineral element remains.

Osmo has been working for many years with "High Solid Products“, which contain only a small amount of solvent. For years now Osmo has also been working to develop products which are completely free from solvents (VOC’s), as a result of this research the Osmo “full solid” range of products was launched, Osmo is still striving to develop this technology further for the years to come.

Osmo-Products are in accordance with, and certified to, relevant VOC-regulations as per DIN EN ISO 9001:2000 (Quality management systems) and 14001 (environmental management systems), demonstrating that Osmo, as a responsible manufacturer of wood and wood finishes, is committed to developing itself and it’s products to meet both the ecological and economical challenges which are faced in modern times. Due to the low amounts of solvents used in our products, the Osmo production facility has not been bound by the German emissions law since 1998, in addition to this technical systems are also encapsulated to ensure that very little emissions can enter the atmosphere.
