Maintenance of your beloved machine will change from a "job" to a "pleasure."

[Ingredients]: Organic crude domestically refined clear jojoba oil, domestic unbleached beeswax

[Capacity/Container] 30ml Aluminum can

[Recommended uses]: Moisturizing, coating and lubricating fingerboards. Protecting oil film on leather products, metal parts, etc.

[Effects] Moisturizes exposed wood such as fingerboards. Forms a coating film and coats the wood. Gives an elegant shine and improves the feel and smoothness of the strings. The scent is almost odorless with a slight honey scent.

[Storage method] Avoid high temperatures and humidity, and store in a cool, dark place. Jojoba oil has the property of solidifying at 10°C. When the temperature of the can rises, it will become yellowish and transparent, but the quality and effectiveness will not change.

[Expiration date guideline] Please use within one year of purchase. It is highly stable and does not oxidize easily, so it can be used for a long time.

  • The fingerboard has a deep, lustrous texture.

    When applied to a rose ebony fingerboard with exposed wood, it gives a wet, glossy look. If the fingerboard is dark, it will become even darker, making the most of the characteristics of the material.

  • The inlay shines with a deep coating

    The transparent coating of beeswax and jojoba oil enhances the shine of inlay materials such as avalon and mother of pearl. It also improves the slipperiness, reducing snagging when playing.

  • Nekodamari Kobo original scent

    The scent is a blend of 100% natural "essential oils". No synthetic fragrances are used. The scent is subtle to avoid any odour pollution. Enjoy your favourite scent while you take care of your hair.

Nekodamari Studio's homemade clear beeswax wax

Maintenance improves the condition of your instrument and makes it easier to play

- Beeswax wax created from a recipe derived from hand cream with a cosmetic perspective.

- We use 100% jojoba oil, a "non-drying oil," rather than the "drying oil" used in beeswax for woodworking.

- Uses stable oil that does not spontaneously combust.*3

- Jojoba oil is known as a luxury massage oil and is used in everything from cosmetics to as a lubricant for artificial hearts.

・Almost odorless. Slight honey scent. The essential oil version has an original blend of scents.

・One can can be used for more than 200 maintenance tasks. The airtight container makes it easy to carry.

- Unlike beeswax for woodworking, the coating does not harden, so there is no need to worry about dirt being trapped.

Once applied, the effect lasts for about 2 to 3 months. Using it every time you change your strings will help prevent dirt from sticking to the strings.

・If you put it on your fingertips while playing, your fingers will slide easily. It also reduces pain from the strings.

- When applied to strings, the lifespan of non-coated strings is significantly increased.

*1 According to manufacturer survey of the series from December 2020 to September 1, 2023 *2 According to manufacturer survey of the series from December 2020 to December 2021 *3 Spontaneous combustion of beeswax occurs when adverse conditions overlap when oils that are easily oxidized, such as drying oils, generate "oxidation reaction heat." Jojoba oil is a particularly stable oil among non-drying oils that are resistant to oxidation, so there is no risk of spontaneous combustion during everyday use.
