A Shining Example

If you have invested in a pair of good quality shoes, it makes sense to use a high-quality shoe polish. Traditional shoe polishes contain Beeswax, Carnauba Wax and Montan Wax and Paraffin Wax. When combined, they produce shine and restore the colour of your leather shoe as well as Cleaning, nourishing and preventing your footwear from cracking.

There is a growing demand to produce effective, more environmentally friendly, polishes that are free from solvent, 100% natural, non-toxic ingredients or silicones, chemical dyes, or petroleum products.

Beeswax, Carnauba wax and natural oils like Olive oil, Almond oil, Neatsfoot oil, Coconut oil or Cocoa butter can be combined which will naturally waterproof, condition, and protect your leather shoes, prolonging the life of leather and giving a lasting shine.

Nourish and Protect

Saddle soap is a wax-based compound used for cleaning, conditioning, and protecting leather. It typically contains mild soap, softening ingredients such as lanolin, and preservative such as Beeswax. It is commonly used on leather footwear, saddles, and other items of horse tack, hence its name.

Leather creams/conditioners are used to condition and prolong the life of leather furniture, car seats, bags, shoes, saddles, leather, gloves. Dyed leather is likely to see a great improvement in its condition. Pigmented leather will feel softer and get a good sheen but its colour cannot be revived with a colourless conditioner.
