Brazilian Rosewood Oil

Strong, flexible, water-resistant oil that is harvested from the seeds of the Brazilian Rosewood tree. Allows the wood to retain its flexibility. It creates no surface film. No trees are ever cut down to obtain this oil.

Transoxide Pigments

Penofin provides up to 99% ultraviolet protection. These pigments also penetrate into the wood protecting it from the inside out from the sun’s damaging rays. It adds a rich, transparent color to enhance the natural beauty of wood, highlighting the grain.

High-Grade Mildewcide

The finest possible mildewcide to retard growth of mold and mildew.


Penofin’s formula penetrates deep into the wood. Other coatings lay on the surface and wear away after a few months. Because Penofin is a low-solid formula it penetrates, protecting wood beneath the surface.
