Rubber trim looking worn, best product to clean it up?

This time last year it looked fine, now however its looking really bad. I was told to use a scourer with some olive oil to clean it up which helped some, but its still patchy looking and dull. You can see the before and after below.
Is it possible to clean it up to make it look almost like new, and some how add a layer of product to protect/give it some shine?

That looks way too far gone to save, replacing would be the best way, but clean with a fairly strong apc then maybe something like solution finish may help

This combination works a treat, I just done this on my wife’s Corsa and it came up better than new
