Glen and Cho thats why i said "as far as i know" and didnt said i am sure of it!! kiwi products are not sold in my country(Greece) and believe me i really tried to find them! i can only judge from an old( early 90s' late 80s' i dont know ,i just found it in my grandfathers stuff) kiwi wax polish i have seen!!it was standar polish(not parade gloss) and it had silicone in it for sure( i remember that but i dont have the tin to take a pic from the back)! i guess they have changed that in their product from back then!! in a little search i made in the internet only parade gloss and instant shine spong or wipes has silicone(said on the tin or on the packaging)!
their wax polish they say it is 100% natural so i suppose it is!! i am sorry for the missinformation on that!!
but as it is obvious http://www.kiwishoeshine.com/KIWI-Select-Mink-Oil-11-oz_p_478.html
parade gloss is not their only shoe care product that contains silicone
so for me the only thing i can say for sure is that we have to be carefull with all products and read the back sticker!! hahaha
As you pointed out Ben, the Kiwi line is pretty broad. I don't remember the specific context of the question that was originally posed to J&J, but I suspect it related to their main paste polish line. I'll see if I can dig up the original email. I actually posted the response from J&J in this thread some time ago as well.
