SHELLAWAX GLOW friction polish

This appears to be true, must be something to do with import regulations of some countries.
The website specifies not available in USA or Canada, but the distributor list states some EU, UK & NZ distributors stock it.

Their website shows eleven distributors here in the U.S.Why do you say it's not shipped to this country?

Looks like two different products. Shella wax is available in the US but not Shella Wax Glow.

They distribute many of their other products to the US, however GLOW is one that they don't. I am not sure if it is due to a particular ingredient or what, but it clearly states on their page for GLOW that they don't export GLOW to US and Canada.

They are very good with their communication, so maybe email them and ask?

There is 3 products in the Shellawax line. Shellawax (Liquid), Shellawax Cream, and Shellawax GLOW.

Shellawax Cream is for larger objects where you need it to sit on the surface of the wood longer to work the friction, where Shellawax (Liquid) soaks in too quickly, but is really good for smaller objects. Shellawax GLOW is the most recent addition, and is basically an enhanced Shellawax that creates better shine and slightly darkens the wood.

I've had great results with Shellawax Cream, but I would get better results with the liquid Shellawax, and even better again with GLOW. But I will try Aussie Oil next.

Just saw this advertised and wanted to bump the thread. Has anyone else used this and does it hold up.
