Default Tyre additive new each season

Hi
Simple question never thought about it before but does additive go off.
So basically got my additive left from last season not doing anything different but seems that my additive seems to be leaving a oily residue on my tyres yes it is a oil based one but dont remember it being this bad???

I've used many different tire sauces over the years, and none of them lost any of their potency after being stored for prolonged periods of time (I've had some tire additives stored for years, and they worked as well as the day I put them away). So long as they remain in air tight containers, they should be good after putting them away for a few months.

Perhaps it just needs a shake as the ingredients have separated perhaps

Do you heat your tires? Helps with oil based additives going into the tire.
Anyways, I don't have that problem since my additives never last a whole season
