Forbes Magazine Features an Article on Soapstone Countertops

By | Industry News, Soapstone Countertop, Soapstone Sinks

We love everything Soapstone, so we were excited when we saw Forbes Magazine’s recent article, “Why Soapstone Is Ideal for Kitchen Countertops and Sinks.” The article offers a detailed overview of soapstone, from its history to origin and its most common applications today.

The article also notes the many benefits of soapstone countertops:

  • Soapstone is non-porous
  • Soapstone is durable and dense
  • Soapstone is a maintenance-free material
  • Soapstone is resistant to bacteria, stains, acids, chemicals, wine, and heat
  • Soapstone does not require sealing, keeping chemicals out of the kitchen
  • Soapstone thaws food quickly because it absorbs the temperature of its environment

Beyond its practical benefits, this beautiful natural stone adds style to both traditional and modern spaces. It develops a beautiful patina with age, which can be allowed to evolve naturally or evened and deepened by oil application.

The article, written by Sheri Koones, is a great overview of the benefits of using soapstone for indoor or outdoor countertops.

New Beeswax & Mineral Oil Soapstone Treatment

By | New Soapstone Products, Soapstone Sinks

IMG_1162Our new soapstone treatment is the best way to beautifully age your new soapstone. This treatment is a 100% food-safe blend of beeswax and mineral oil. Many new soapstone owners treat their stone with mineral oil alone, which provides a moderate seal. We work hard on sourcing the finest soapstone available, so we wanted to provide a soapstone treatment of the highest quality while keeping the treatment natural. The Beeswax & Mineral Oil Soapstone Treatment is available for purchase from our online store in both 8 oz. and 16 oz. sizes.

Adding beeswax to the mineral oil increases the staying power of the treatment by providing a stronger seal and a longer-lasting, subtle shine. This treatment will also help to lessen the time that new soapstone takes to darken to its aged glory.

Try it for yourself to see the difference in your soapstone countertop, sink, tiles, or fireplace!
