Most bow rosin is based on colophony but with various additives to adjust its properties.

Any idea what these various additives might be?

The label on my Bernardel rosin says colophony so I hope so.

Yes.  Just like the rosin bag on the pitchres' mound. Bow rosin will have stuff like beeswax, castor oil, benzoin, myrrh, or spike oil added
