There is no regulation for leather care products to list ingredients, so most leather conditioners do not. Instead, many have warnings on their labels to call poison control if ingested, to keep off of skin and away from pets and children. (yikes!)
In contrast, Colorado Leather Balm proudly lists all natural ingredients which are both wonderful for use on your leather, but also beneficial for your skin and safe for use around children and animals.
Colorado Leather Balm works well to condition and naturally waterproof all of your valuable leather items - boots, saddlery and tack; hand bags, belts, holsters, leather clothing, leather luggage, leather upholstery....
Comes in two scents: yummy Orange-Vanilla and fresh citrus-y Citronella.
Directions for Use: Apply Colorado Leather Balm to clean leather using your hands. Start with a small amount and rub into your leather item.
The heat from your hand helps get Colorado Leather Balm deeper into the leather fibers and it's also a great moisturizer for YOUR skin. Bonus!
Continue with applications until leather is saturated and does not absorb any more balm.
For best results, let sit at least 10 minutes or overnight, then take a clean rag, soft bristled brush, or sheepskin and gently rub or buff leather until surface has a deep gleam, is smooth to the touch and no longer tacky.
Because this balm absorbs so well, buffing your leather is fast and easy to get that deep luxurious gleam!
Before you buff out your leather, you might see some white residue- this is just extra balm on the surface- it will wipe right off. For especially dry leathers, this entire process can be repeated multiple times.
Note: This product will likely DARKEN leather, as it deeply nourishes, conditions, waterproofs and protects it.
Take special care when conditioning carved or tooled leather or seams- the balm can get stuck down in the carved areas and be difficult to remove later.
If you do get balm down in seams or tooling, an old tooth brush works great to get it out, or a short blast with a hair dryer will help melt and drive any excess leather balm into the fibers of your leather.
Lastly, a little goes a long way so take a "less is more" and add more as needed!
