Our Sports Vegan Liquiwax contains essential oils of Manuka (from the same plant used to make Manuka honey) and Lemon. We also blend in a high quality Calendula Paste from New Zealand, and Hypericum (St John’s Wort). With its lemony/leathery scent, this wax is neither herbal nor floral.
Manuka essential oil has a long history of use by the Maori people and has been referred to as the New Zealand Tea Tree Oil.
Songbird Sports Vegan Liquiwax is an excellent pre- and post-event massage medium.
If you are looking for a stronger grip, you could try our Sports Vegan Massage Wax or Vegan Fascial Release Wax, as they both contain similar ingredients but offer a stronger and tighter grip. Our Fascial Release Waxes are ideal for Myofascial Release work and deep tissue work, which require a deeper, slower and more controlled functionality.
We have worked hard to get the consistency of our Vegan Liquiwaxes as close to our original beeswax formula as possible. They initially present as a little looser than the original, but tighten up quickly to give a comparable grip.

About our Liquiwaxes: Liquiwax is a more viscous version of our classic Massage Wax and comes in a pump dispenser. Upon application, Liquiwax allows for long, gliding strokes, ideal for bodywork. It maintains a tight grip, but has more ‘slip’ than our classic massage waxes.
Liquiwaxes are an excellent alternative to massage waxes for those looking for a pump dispenser method and a slightly stronger glide factor. In addition, they make for a luxurious body moisturiser and are excellent at removing makeup!
Notes on using the pump dispenser: When you receive your Liquiwax, you need to 'prime' it before first use. To do this, unlock the pump by turning the nozzle to the left, then pump vigorously for up to 40 or so times. This draws up the wax and ‘loads’ the nozzle. If you find that the pump stops dispensing wax before the botte is empty, this may be due to an air pocket or vacuum at the bottom of the bottle. To fix this, unscrew and remove the top, give the bottle a squeeze and a shake to redistribute the wax, and then screw the lid back on before vigorously pumping to draw the wax back up.
