The Yorkshire list the ingredients but I do not know all of the ingredients of EEE except that it contains tripoli. Tripoli is also called rottenstone.
So Yorkshire has pumice and rottenstone, pumice a courser abrasive and EEE has no pumice.
Yorkshire says to pre-sand to 240 where EEE says to pre-sand to 400 – 600.
With Yorkshire you are to use a sanding sealer prior to the product, not sure about the EEE.
Both have to be wiped clean of all residue before finishing. This is the residue of the paste you just applied.
Yorkshire states you can use any finish on top, EEE instructions say not to use some (like a lacquer).

I have not use either but I may try a shop made because I already have rottenstone and pumice from flat work in the 80’s.
Here is a link to Daniel Vilarino’s video, I think this was his latest batch with revised ingredients.
