For no real reason at all I decided to research a little about Carnauba wax. So here is some info I found. I figure geeks like me would find it interesting. :)

Carnauba Wax Facts (From Zymol's website)
Carnauba Wax is the hardest natural wax known to man and is recognized by automakers and car owners as the finest auto finish wax. Carnauba Wax is recommended by major automakers worldwide to shine and protect new paint finishes. Over 70% of car waxers believe that Carnauba Wax gives the best results. Pure Carnauba wax is harder than concrete.

Just keep in mind that because of these properties, no wax can be made of 100% carnauba. It's also not carnauba that gives your paint the shine, because carnauba is brittle and yellow. Solvents, oils, and other materials help make the soft paste or liquid you use!

Yep, Griot's confirms this (please note that I am on a relentless quest to get my postings to 1000 and thus this is, my friends, yet another gratuitous post!) :D
