Outdoor Paste Wax?

A few years back, when refinishing an outdoor teak table, a pal suggested after I finished applying Teak Oil I use fine steel wool to rub in a paste wax (which he gave me). I did and the result was wonderful. I've just refinished the table with teak oil once more but my hardware guy said he didn't carry "outdoor paste wax". I've looked high and low, no luck. Can anyone suggest a brand or tell me what exactly makes a paste wax good for use
on outdoor furniture? Thanks for any input.

I would think any good automotive paste wax would do the trick. After all, cars are subject to outdoor weather.

I normally use Turtle Wax on furniture I'm refinishing that needs a wax finish.

Sikkens makes a Marine wax designed for outdoor use on wood, specifically for wood boats. But should work on furniture.
