I was searching your question on the internet and found some great sites. Try these for your answers:

http://www.newton.dep.anl.gov/archive.htm

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Varnish --this site has information on all the items you mentioned, but I would back it up with other research since this is NOT the most reliable academic source.

http://www.craftsman-style.info/painting/008-varnish.htm

http://www.enotes.com/how-products-encyclopedia/shampoo --this site can be used to look up all the products you mention as well.

Good Luck with your research!
