Saratoga Soapstone

Used for years in fireplaces, wood stoves, and ovens, it has recently made its mark with interior designers, homebuilders, architects, and countertop fabricators.

With the ability to achieve many looks like early American or modern and contemporary design, soapstone has become a popular choice due to its unique, marbling features and flowing veins. It’s a versatile product that can be used for both sinks and outdoor applications, and its beauty is shown without the need for polishing or surface treatments. When waxed, it even exhibits a dramatic color variation and richness. Soapstone is practically indestructible and adds elegance and enduring value to any project.

*About Waxing: You have the option of leaving soapstone in its natural state, however applying Saratoga Soapstone Wax will enhance the richness and color of your stone’s natural beauty, creating a deeper and more dramatic appearance.

Saratoga Soapstone Wax is a long-lasting, all-natural and organic, non-yellowing wax that enhances the natural beauty of soapstone and darkens it to a nice luster without being sticky. Saratoga Soapstone Wax acts as a protective layer and eliminates almost all soapstone countertop maintenance.

Our secret ingredient allows the wax to bind with the surface unlike any competing products.
