But, this spring, for the first time, you can buy products developed and made right here in Canada.

Laboratoire Hygienex Inc. has marketed a full line of car care products for dealers and maintenance experts since 1999.

According to the company, the Double Polymer Paint Sealant, is a revolutionary all-in-one product that “capitalizes on the full potential of nano technology for cleaning, restoring and protecting a car’s bodywork.”

The company’s web site – – contains a raft of information on these and other products available on-line as well plenty of “how-to” tips for detailing your car, truck, SUV or motorcycle.
