Food Contact Compliance (Food Safe)

Food Safe Wood Finish by Rubio Monocoat

Rubio Monocoat Oil Plus 2C has been one of the most versatile wood oils for 15+ years. You can apply it to floors, furniture, and stairs and it is suitable to use for children's toys. It not only looks and performs fantastically, but is also easy to apply and maintain. We are proud to confirm that our wood finish is food safe and compliant for charcuterie boards, butcher block countertops, tabletops, and other surfaces where food is involved.

While cutting boards finished with Oil Plus 2C are food contact compliant, we do not recommend Oil Plus 2C as a finish for cutting boards. This is because a knife can cut deeper than our product penetrates, leaving raw wood exposed and susceptible to mold or bacteria growth. However, rest assured that surfaces not intended for cutting, when treated with our product, will remain food grade safe.

3rd Party Testing

Our wood finish is tested by the independent testing institute Eurofins, according to the underlying specification of European Framework Regulation 1935/2004 for Food Contact Materials. The test results show that Rubio Monocoat Oil Plus 2C is in indeed food safe and in full compliance, when applied to a wooden surface. Therefore, if Rubio Monocoat Oil Plus 2C (A+B) is used on a wooden surface that is in itself food safe, then the combination of the wood and our Oil Plus 2C is also safe! And of course you can then add Universal Maintenance Oil or SheenPlus to increase the sheen and maintain a food safe surface.
