Since Henry’s discovery was in 1860, before environmental concern were an issue, he used toluene in the formula to ensure the finest “patina” finish. Since the 1990’s, regulatory agencies throughout the USA have started to highlight certain groups of chemicals and the extra care needed when using them.
Toluene is member of these regulatory groups, so Briwax answered the call and developed a toluene-free formula, using the identical beeswax/carnauba wax blend. Except for a little extra drying time, the results are outstanding – No loss in Patina, which has become the Briwax trademark of quality!
