Formula 1 is the world's largest selling range of car care products. Manufactured in usa, formula 1 is formulated with grade 1 carnauba wax which is a resin obtained from the leaves of a palm tree called copernica cerifera. Brazilian natives often refer to the carnauba tree as the "Tree of life," because it is used in so many ways to nourish and support. Pure carnauba wax has the highest melting point of all natural waxes and is widely accepted as the hardest commercial wax known to man. Pure carnauba, in its natural state, is harder than concrete. One of its most interesting properties is that it swells and closes its pores when exposed to water. Carnauba wax also has the ability to retain oil and has excellent gloss properties. Formula 1 is a specialty manufacturer of car care products (unlike most other companies which only market products made by other manufacturers). Formula 1 products are marketed in 75 countries word wide.
