Mind you, these other waxes are apparently perfectly OK if they are used for
cutting board mosturizing,
food glazing including fruits and candies,
ozone-breakdown inhibitors in rubber including tire rubber,
and as anti-caking agent for the very fertilizer used for growing the crops (I'm betting soy) that this 'environmentally friendly' wax is purportedly extracted from.
So, if paraffin and such are not evil and are safe for human consumption, and do not demonstrably accumulate in the environment after more than two hundred years of active use, where is the justification for calling the new product 'more environmentally friendly'?
If I was trying to be environmentally friendly, I would prefer to have the soy field the ingredients for this product were grown on be restored to unlogged forest. The water not diverted, processed and treated to be used for irrigation, the fertilizer not spread.
