Over time, it is not uncommon to discover that your wax shoe polish has dried out and formed cracks. This is not something to worry about and occurs when the solvents evaporate over time. Many professional shoe shiners leave their polish to purposefully dry out because less solvents create a higher wax concentration which helps achieve a high shine faster.
If you do prefer your polishes with the original texture, just like when you first opened the tin, you can easily fix dried polishes now with the new Saphir Médaille D’Or Wax Softener. The Wax Softener is a 100% plant-based product made from only natural ingredients that will help you to bring dried polish back to life.
With this product you can replace the evaporated solvent with simply one or two sprays into the tin and you will find that the polish immediately absorbs the Wax Softener and reverts back to its original texture.
