History of Zymöl
Zymol started life in Germany in the late 1800s as a carriage maker's polish formula in the town of Bischofsheim. The original included paraffin, lard, goose fat, beef suet and refined tree sap (montan oil). It is often sold as Zymol shampoo.
However the formula had no shelf life, so was taken to America, broken down and analysed so suitable organic substitutes could be found. They were replaced with highly saturated plant oils, such as banana, coconut, and cinnamon bark. Montan oil was retained, but the paraffin was replaced with Carnauba. This formulation gave a clarity and depth of shine that gave an incredibly polished finish.
