SunShield compared to Teak Oil:
Teak oil is usually either linseed oil or tung oil, bolstered by resins to make them more durable. Proprietary teak oils often have various additives, including pigments, UV filters, and mildew retardants.
SunShield penetrates the wood with natural orange oil and mineral oil. It does not contain linseed oil, tung oil or silicone oil. SunShield utilizes natural beeswax and carnauba wax along with a UV inhibitor to help the penetrating oils last longer and to enhance the beauty of the wood. It does not contain any stains or resins.
SunShield may be used over stain and it can be removed from the wood using a teak cleaner - more easily than teak oil containing linseed or tung oil. If it gets on fiberglass (as with boats) it will not harm it or stain it - unlike some teak oils - and it can be cleaned with soap and water or basic boat cleaner.
