July 2010 Readback


Faster & Easier Waxing
Eagle One Gel Wax delivers a glorious, glossy shine that will last as long as paste but is easier to use than liquid wax. Apply the wax, immediately wipe it off and enjoy the mirror-like shine. Environmentally friendly Gel Wax uses natural carnauba and unique polishers, which produce durability and water beading. There’s no white residue or harmful petroleum solvents.
