Teak finished with hemp oil after two months of summer

Hemp wood finish penetrates deeply into teak protecting the wood from the inside out. This solvent-free and breathable oil expands and contracts with wood surfaces allowing any moisture trapped within to escape with the changing temperatures and humidity we experience throughout the boating season.
Once applied, it creates a protective water-resistant and scratch-resistant surface.

And if accidentally spilled into the water, it makes a nutritious snack for aquatic life!

Reapply as required to keep your teak well coated for protection and appearance. Average coats per refinish is 1-3. Protection lasts one to two years depending on your teak.
