Tax included.

Carnauba Polish is a fast-drying surface finish, rich in carnauba wax and beeswax. Very soft and easy to apply, it hardens quickly and when buffed, imparts a beautiful hard, high sheen. It is Step 3 of our 3 Step Waxing Process.

Used For

A surface finish for waxed or oiled timber. Also suitable for non-porous surfaces such as metal, marble, slate and concrete. Ideal for use over chalk paint and Venetian plaster.

Surface Preparation

Ensure the surface is clean and dry before application. Timber needs to be previously waxed or oiled before application. Not suitable for raw timber.

How to Apply

  1. Dip a clean, lint-free cloth and spread sparingly over the surface, not more than one square metre at a time, in a circular motion. 
  2. Buff back vigorously with a soft, lint-free cloth or buffing pads.
  3.  Use up to three coats, buffing well between each coat. Allow 20 - 30 minutes between coats.

Dry Time

20 minutes provided excess is wiped away.


Depending on wear, apply if the waxed area becomes dull or faded.

Clean Up

Warm, soapy water for hands or cloth. Excess wax on timber; dampen a cloth with d-limonene or mineral turpentine.

Great product with many uses!

Personally, I can’t go past the Carnauba Wax, I have used it in conjunction with the Restoring Polish to restore old timber - which comes up looking brand new!
There’s a special secret about the Carnauba Wax.. It works amazing as a car polish! I wash my car, then apply Gilly’s Carnauba Wax as a finishing touch. The best part being, you only need a little bit! Work the wax into the exterior of the car in a circular motion and use a clean cloth to smooth it out. My car looks fresh, like it’s had a professional wax job. Normal car wax doesn’t even compare to the Gilly’s Carnauba Wax. Great product.

Easy to order, easy to use, and my camphor laurel coat and hat stand looks great. More projects on the way.

Smells great, furniture has come up beautifully

I've used Gilly's cabinet maker's wax and carnauba polish to finish a Tasmanian hardwood dining setting I've been restoring during lockdown. The table and chairs have come up beautifully in both colour and feel. While I'm being a bit more careful with the surface than when it was varnished, it's holding up well to everyday use.
The order itself arrived really quickly, even with the current pressures on the postal service.
