Furniture wax, also known as hardwax or floor wax. Main ingredients are beeswax, carnauba wax or paraffin wax, mixed with turpentine (chemically treated natural resin) or white spirit (petroleum derived). Sometimes it can be mixed with oils, resins, pigments, fillers and drying agents. Carnauba wax is extracted from the dried leaves of the wax palm (Copernicia cerifera). Carnauba wax is very hard and water resistant. Beeswax comes from the honeycombs of different bee species(1).
