How to remove/prevent smudges in wax finish on soapstone?

December 28, 2017

We had soapstone counters installed in our house 2 months ago and two coats of wax were applied after the installation. The wax is very prone to smudging and marks though and it's seemingly impossible to get these marks out of the wax. Does anyone with soapstone have any insight into this and what I might expect? I'm trying to figure out how to even out the finish or if it will just happen over time. Any help/thoughts would be greatly appreciated! Photos are attached showing what I'm experiencing.
