From the Walrus Oil Website:
"No matter how well made, wooded cutting boards require proper maintenance to last and without regular treatment they will dry out, crack, and can even begin growing mold on the surface. Walrus Oil Cutting Board Oil penetrates the wood surface with wood preserving oils and seals the surface with water repelling beeswax, helping cutting boards last for generations.
Our Cutting Board Oil is 100% Food-Safe and free of toxins and synthetics, designed for new builds or for reconditioning. A heavy-duty cutting board oil that doesn't require multiple coats! It will leave your board with a silky smooth finish, rich color, and a little sheen. The perfect ratio of ingredients locks in natural wood tones while repelling water and food particles when in use. Best part is, it only takes seconds to apply.

For New Wood Projects
When using our Cutting Board Oil for new wood projects, be sure to sand at 320 to 600. To prevent raised grain, before sealing some woodworkers will do the sand-wet-sand method, meaning they'll sand the board, wet it, let it dry, and then do a final sand before applying a finish.
How to Maintain or Restore a Cutting Board
Cutting board maintenance and restoration is relatively simple. Clean the cutting board first with light soap and lukewarm water, then allow plenty of time to dry. If there are deep knife cuts or if any mold is visible, sanding the board down will be necessary using an electric orbit sander or planer if available. After sanding all surfaces simply apply a coat of our Cutting Board Oil and allow it to dry for 12 to 24 hours. Wipe away any excess oil after cure time.
Safe for Food-Contact Surfaces
Every product manufactured by Walrus Oil is 100% Food-Safe. All ingredients are considered GRAS (generally regarded as safe) by the FDA for food-contact surfaces. Our Cutting Board Oil can be used on kitchen butcher block counters, cutting boards, wood utensils, and even baby toys.
Using Cutting Board Oil with Another Company's Products
Our Cutting Board Oil can be used in conjunction with most other oil-based finishes or epoxy and resins, such as when making a "river board" or when using wood pieces that have had cracks and holes filled with epoxy.
