What happened to Naviwax waxes?

I've just come across a sample pot of Naviwax Dark in the garage that I was sent for free by a retailer over 4 years ago. I was thinking about giving it a go later today but was wondering what happened to Naviwax. I never see it around these days. Is it still in production?

Also, will I be OK using it if it's more than 4 years old?

Cheers

Same as a lot of waxes on here

A bit of hype when they come out then unless really really outstanding don't get talked about as much as time goes on and people move onto the next new hyped wax

Yeah, I've noticed that this game is a bit 'faddish'!

I presume that for the money (£35) there's far better waxes available now?

I still use the Naviwax Ultimate. Dead easy to apply and remove in sun or shade, and gives a good few months of protection. They reckon you can get around 30 applications per tin, but I can get 50!

I use Ultimate for my shuts and side windows, seems to last ages! Very easy to use, they're still going, but the price of their waxes seem to be going up!

The thing is - naviwax is pretty awesome

The problem it had was it was difficult to get hold of i.e. only a few sellers sold it.

Also, it doesn't cost £100 and have a gold plated label so ofc, isn't worthy of a detailing arsenal!
