The PenofinŽ brand is a family owned company for over 30 years and is proud to make "The World's Finest Wood Finishes". Their use of Brazilian Rosewood Oil as a base not only creates a stain that penetrates deeper and makes your wood last longer, but this carefully harvested crop guarantees continued jobs in an area that is destroying its ecosystem. Brazilian Rosewood Oil is harvested from the carefully gathered pod of the Brazilian rosewood tree. This oil is found in the fruit of the trees that grow on the dry plains and is the essential ingredient of PenofinŽ. No other wood finishing product contains this special oil.
