Many Thanks for the tip, Gabriel. Looks very interesting!
Here is a quote about one of their products:

I wonder what exactly they mean by " 'nude' bike frames..." ? Very interesting.
Above all, perhaps this would also be a suitable protectant for brake lever
hoods... or perhaps even hoping for such a product is just another quest fo r the Holy Grail of bike component preservatives.
