Feel Good Friday – Gorilla Wax

Gorilla Wax

We are always pleased to see a ‘Feel Good Friday’ brand expand. We have been fans of the leather accessories company Oliberte for several years now, and their launch of a new natural Gorilla wax proves to us they are thriving. And so too are the sub-Saharan African workers the company works closely with.

For thousands of years, Shea butter has been used as a natural waterproofing agent in Africa.

The Gorilla Wax recipe is simple + natural:

  • Organic Beeswax
  • Organic Shea Butter
  • Organic Sunflower Oil
  • Bee Propolis Extract

In many others, you may find silicone, petroleum and artificial ingredients.

Founder Tal Dehtiar wanted to create a waterproofing wax to compliment Oliberte’s leather products, which he founded in 2009. In 2013, they became the world’s first Fair Trade Certified footwear manufacturing company.

Check out this handy video showing how it all comes together to become one helluva waterproof wax:
