Shellac is all-natural. It is non-toxic and is a resin of insect origin that is harvested regularly and is a completely renewable resource much like silk.
Shellac flakes are dissolved by denatured ethyl alcohol. It's very easy to use and an excellent non-toxic choice for woodworkers. Shellac can be applied with a brush, pad, sprayer, or wiping cloth. It has a super fast dry time, thus saving money and aggravation.
Shellac is UV - resistant and does not yellow or darken over time.
Shellac will adhere tenaciously to virtually any surface and is much less brittle than lacquer and does not scratch as easily. Unlike toxic polyurethane, a damaged shellac finish can easily be touched up or renewed by applying another coat. A new coat of shellac melts itself into the existing coat.
Unlike other types of finish, all types of shellac can be applied in cold temperatures without concern over proper drying and curing times.
Shellac enhances the beauty of wood grain unlike any other finish. Shellac is one of the only wood finishes that really brings out the natural beauty of wood without that fake plastic look. Shellac, especially when applied using the French Polishing technique will make the wood grain pop. It brings out the rich warmth of wood grain in a way that no other finish has ever done.
