All carbon paste will scuff up the paint as it has grit in it. Otherwise it wouldn't work and would be called grease.
Most of these products are rebranded Dynamic product (Tacx, FSA, Syntace etc., etc.).
Not sure about Finish Line, Motorex (which if it does not contain microscopic particles is just an assembling grease?) or Effetto Mariposa's Carbogrip.

Carbon paste is not corrosive, but it is designed to scuff components. That's how it works. Just don't shove your seatpost all the way in and lift it out again and you'll be fine.

You can always use the excess as a sexual lubricant.

Then someone gave a 4 once tube from a European brand, don't remember the brand name, so at my age I will never have to buy carbon paste ever again.
Ironically, sarcastic remarks like these are against forum rules. Sorry, John but you've just been caught red handed.
