Osmo is a leading manufacturer of natural wood oil and wood protection products designed for interior and exterior use. With a large range of wood finishes for all applications, we’ve put together a brief guide on selecting the right Osmo oil for your woodcare protection.
The original hardwax-oil, osmo polyx-oil is extremely durable, hardwearing and resistant to common spillages, making it the ideal wood oil for interior wooden floors and furniture. Polyx-oil is available in gloss, satin and matt finishes.
Polyx-Oil Effect Raw 3044 provides a lightly white pigmented matt finish, providing near invisible protection for lightly coloured wooden floors and furniture, keeping your light-coloured wood light for longer.
Polyx-Oil Tints provides 7 perfect colour options that still allow the woods natural grain to be visible. Benefitting from the same great protection properties of Polyx-Oil, tints provide a stunning and durable colour finish to interior floors and furniture.
Ideal for vertical exterior wood surfaces such as doors, windows, shutters, cladding, balconies, fences, pergolas and summer houses, UV Protection Oil is water and dirt resistant and delays the natural greying of untreated wood by up to 12 times. UV Protection Oil is a satin finish, with two clear options (410 & 420) and 8 transparent colour tints.
UV Protection 410 is safe for humans, plants and animals when dry
UV Protection 420 Extra is mould, algae and fungi resistant
As the name suggests, Decking Oil is the perfect companion for your decking, but can also be used on other exterior soft and hardwood furniture. Osmo Decking Oil is water and dirt resistant, but also breathable therefore reducing water logging, swelling and shrinkage. It is also safe for animals, plants and humans once dry.
Available in 11 transparent colours which ensure the natural wood character remains visible, the shades all provide excellent UV-resistance except for the very popular 007 Teak Oil which is a clear finish and allows wood to naturally grey.
Top Oil is food safe (EN 1186) and safe for use on children’s toys (EN 71.3). Top Oil is extremely water repellent, avoiding water marks and also resistant to common liquid spillages, making it ideal for general interior joinery, kitchen worktops and food-safe surfaces.
Suitable for solid interior doors, furniture and some veneered surfaces, Osmo Door Oil comes in two finishes 3060 Clear Satin which enhances woods natural character, and 3033 Raw Matt which preserves wood’s natural light colour with its lightly white pigmented finish.

How to apply Osmo Oils?
Generally, application of Osmo Oils is straightforward and will achieve excellent results if completed correctly.
