I have to admit, when I got my food grade Boos countertop for my work island, I figured why pay so much money for mineral oil to use on it. I bought plain mineral oil and have used it multiple times. Then I read that this product is more than just plain mineral oil and I bought it and yes, I do see a difference. It works. The countertop has a richer color and feel to it. I also used Boos Block Cream. I would highly recommend both products.
