Yeah. I bought a gallon of it in 1978. I think it's junk but a masterful job of marketing.

It's denatured alcohol and paraffin.

I'm with Tony, Junk! I used it in the spring and looks like garbage after summer. That is on the east side of the house. Can't imagine what it would be like if it is on the west side with the afternoon sun. So many better options.
