The History of Renaissance Wax Reanaisance wax polish was originally formulated in the British Museum research laboritories in the early 1950s in response to a discussion amongst museum technicians at an international conference on fine-art conservation. In accelerated aging tests, the British Museum scientist found that all current commercial waxes based on the usual natural waxes (beeswax and carnauba wax) contained acids which, in time, could spoil original finishes on national historic collections and furniture. He rejected them all and unvestigated the new so-called ‘fossil’ or micro-crystalline waxes being refined out of crude oil. With their distinct characteristics depending on their geographical origins, the new ‘man-made’ waxes could be accurately blended to meet the needs of many industries, from cosmetics and pharmaceuticals to heavy engineering. Thus, the waxes combined Nature’s best qualities with the advantages of modern technology.
